A recent industry survey examined the growth of baby swimming in the UK over the past two years. Some participants confirmed increases as high as 75% in the number of babies taught.
Of most interest, the survey showed that you no longer have to wait until your baby is 6 months old before introducing them to water. A staggering 84% of schools offer classes for babies 6 months old or younger.
Seriously Fun Swim Babies for example take babies from 4 months to 3 years old.
The top five reasons why baby swimming has become so popular are:
- It is fun!
- You can do it as a family.
- Helps develop a confident child.
- Helps establish an active, fit and healthy lifestyle.
- It is a life saving skill.
