The National Institutes of Health recently released a study that
supports the positive impact learn to swim lessons can have on young
children and drowning prevention. It states, “Providing very young
children with swimming lessons appears to have a protective effect
against drowning and does not increase childrens’ risk of drowning.”
Contrary to long held beliefs, introducing your infant to swimming
lessons at even 6 months, does not encourage them to be overly bold and
unsafe around water. The study concludes:Participating in
formal swimming lessons was associated with an 88% reduction in the
risk of drowning in children between the ages of 1 to 4. (Arch
Pediatric Med. 2009; 163(3):203-210)
