The Benefits of Children’s Swimming Lessons

Our philosophy for any age of child is to ensure safety in the water and water confidence, encouraging families to fully utilise the benefits and enjoyment that they can have swimming together – whether on holiday or trips to the pool.

The ability to swim and be confident in the water will carry through to the rest of the child’s life. There are many benefits to starting children swimming early, including:

  • Improved strength
  • Improved co-ordination
  • Larger lung capacity and function
  • Greater stamina
  • Improved joint mobility
  • Cardiovascular Exercise

As you can see, there are tons of great benefits to child swimming lessons, and that’s not even mentioning the social and psychological benefits of swimming with others and gaining confidence in the pool!

We ensure our classes have 2 fully qualified teachers, and no more than 8 swimmers, so that there’s 1 teacher to every 4 children. This means that each child has the opportunity to receive the support, attention and teaching they need to develop their skills. The course itself has been developed alongside the STA International Swim Programme, and you can find out more on the Swimstars course levels here.
