Most parents know that swimming is a great form of physical activity for their kids. It helps exercise their cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and also provides strength-building benefits. But what many parents may not know, is that swimming classes also benefits their kids social and cognitive development. Teaching kids to swim at a young age can help build their self-confidence, encourage positive social skills, and prepare them for future success.
Studies have revealed that children who take part in swimming lessons from a younger age are better adapted to new situations, and have better self-confidence and independence than non-swimmers. Our swim classes encourage kids to take turns, share, cooperate, and encourage their peers. Furthermore, our classes teach kids to set goals in swimming and feel proud whenever they master a certain skill. All of these factors contribute to boosting your kids’ self-esteems, and encouraging them to be comfortable in an array of social situations.
In addition to boosting social confidence, kids swimming lessons have been shown to boost brain development. Research has found that kids who participated in swim classes scored higher for intelligence and problem-solving skills than non-swimmers. Learning to swim teaches kids self-discipline, self-control, and a desire to succeed. These skills prepare kids for academic success in the future, and the tools necessary to problem solve in a variety of situations.
Collectively, the benefits of physical exercise and confidence boosting make choosing swimming lessons for your little ones an unbeatable choice. Our winter swimming session is open for registration and runs fro January 2nd to March 24th. Build confidence in your children; register for Winter now!
