When Should a Child Learn Swimming?

Kids are quite fond of playing in the water. However, many parents are afraid to put their kids in the water or teach them to learn swimming even if they want to learn. They think probably the kids need to be a bit more grown-up before they can be taught swimming. However, recent research made by American Pediatrics suggests that a kid should rather be put into swimming training while they are below 4 years of age. 

At that age, the probability of the kids getting drowned is much less than when they grow older. So, you can send your ward to swimming classes where a trainer teaches your kid. You can also visit to join swimming lessons for kids in Pickering

AAP researchers have found that many children in the 1-19 age group die from drowning or suffer fatal injuries. In fact, drowning is the second leading cause of child death. 

For this reason, the AAP believes it is really necessary to facilitate swimming lessons for the kids in order to save them from such unwanted injury or death. And the kids from the age group of 1 to 4 are quite able to start their swimming lessons.

However, the AAP also stipulates that not all children can learn to swim early. If children have cognitive impairments, they should be given time to work through them before they are sent off for swimming practice.
