Our Spring 2019 term has started on 6th January and will run until 6th April 2019, but it is not too late to book your child in for swimming classes at any of our 4 London pools.
Here are 5 Reasons Why Your Child Should Learn to Swim Now:
1. To Be Safer in the Water
Playing around in the water is a big responsibility, and kids who learn to swim also learn how to stay safe in the water. The aim of this day is to draw attention to water safety for parents and kids alike. At Nautilus, we focus on water safety during every lesson — including having kids learn how to get in and out of the pool safely, how to roll over to take a breath when tired, proper breath control and more.
2. To Help Prevent Drowning
It’s important for kids to know how to swim so they are prepared to help themselves in case they accidentally fall into water or find themselves in trouble in the water.
3. To Have Fun
It is important kids are prepared to safely enjoy the warm weather in the pool, lakes and oceans! And at Nautilus, our instructors use integrity, compassion and trust to teach kids with special needs (like Down syndrome, autism, ADHD and sensory issues) how to swim! (Just part of our WOW! customer service!) When your kids have learned to swim, you’ll be confident allowing them to play in the water with their friends and celebrate that youthful freedom.
4. To Be Healthy
Your kids’ health is your first priority, and swimming definitely provides extraordinary results health-wise. Swimming is a fantastic activity to keep kids heart-healthy, but swimming provides even more all-over health benefits as well — including muscle strength, coordination, and aerobic fitness. When your kids know how to swim, it’s a fun way for them to stay healthy.
5. To Learn a Lifelong Skill
Kids who learn to swim grow up to be adults who know how to swim! If you don’t teach your child how to swim at a young age, there may not be a good opportunity to learn later. Teaching them to swim now allows them to have a lifelong skill. (And yes, it’s important for your kids to take swimming lessons even if they already “know” how to swim).
