Toddler swimming lessons in Alta Dena provide a fun-filled introduction to water safety. While young children may not be developmentally ready to swim on their own, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends starting swimming lessons between the ages of 1 and 4. Learning water safety and survival skills is proven to lower drowning rates among children, including toddlers and preschoolers.
Parents should be involved in swimming lessons for kids under the age of 4. The goal is for you and your child to have fun while learning water safety basics. Toddlers gain confidence and comfort through water play and guided instruction, building a solid foundation for long-term success.
Does your little learner seem eager to swim? It’s never too early to teach water safety, and children are safest when they get started early in life. If you’re uncertain, talk to your child’s pediatrician to determine if they’re physically and developmentally ready. The sooner, the safer.
