Parent & Me Lessons

Parent & Me lessons are more than just fun. These classes are educational and have lead to very interesting findings in studies. For example, in 2010, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) formally revised their policy on drowning prevention based on a study performed by the National Institute of Health (NIH) which found that formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1 – 4 lead to an 88% reduction of risk from drowning. Further studies have been performed by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology reveals that infants that participated in swimming lessons demonstrated better balance and motor skills from the start of their lessons up to the age of 5. These lessons are best performed in controlled climates.
