Parents in Jersey City have lots of options when it comes to choosing activities for their children. Kids swimming classes from British Swim School Hudson Waterfront are often at the top the list because parents want their kids to learn how to swim and be safe in the water. But did you know that swimming classes can also help young children reach physical and mental milestones faster?
According to a study by the Griffith Institute for Educational Research, kids enrolled in swimming classes at a young age were more advanced in motor skills and reached developmental milestones significantly earlier than their peers who were not taking swimming classes. For example, the average child will be able to speak clearly enough for strangers to understand somewhere in year 5 or 6. In comparison, children enrolled in swimming classes will reach this milestone as early as 25 months for an average of 36 months earlier!
Other notable improvements were also observed, including:
- Separating easily from parents 18 months earlier
- Running easily 18 months earlier
- Cooperating with other children 24 months earlier
- Understanding the concept of counting 24 months earlier
- Learning water survival skills 34 months earlier
