It’s Not Too Late to Start Kids Swimming – Even in Elementary School

Sure, a great time to start teaching your kids how to swim would be before they turn 1 (which is why Goldfish Swim School offers swim lessons for babies starting at 4 months old!) — but anyone can take swim lessons to learn how to swim at any age – especially during elementary school!

You’re never too old to learn.

Many people make it to adulthood without knowing how to swim – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Often, parents will start little ones in swim lessons as babies, during preschool or even in kindergarten…yet when elementary school starts, swim lessons can fall to the wayside. Kids of all ages benefit from learning how to swim correctly, and Goldfish Swim School provides extraordinary results!

Playing in the water isn’t the same as swimming.

Your child has been invited to a pool party or two or spent some time swimming at the beach in the summer, so he or she doesn’t need swim lessons, right? Wrong. Even when they are able to stand in the water and play with friends, kids still benefit from having swim lessons if they “know” how to swim.

Does your child know what to do in deep water? In case of an emergency situation? At Goldfish Swim School, our instructors use integrity, compassion and trust to teach kids how to swim AND lifesaving water safety skills.

You don’t have to be competitive.

Swimming is an important lifelong, lifesaving skill for EVERYONE. Swimming is so much more than a competitive sport for kids to join in school, so you don’t need to worry if your own little goldfish hasn’t been swimming for years. Goldfish Swim School makes swimming fun and celebrates victories big and small, making every lesson a GOLDEN experience.

Kids with special needs can benefit from swimming, too.

ALL kids can benefit from knowing how to swim, so don’t let perceived limitations shy you away from signing up for swim lessons! Goldfish Swim School helps kids with special needs – including Down’s syndrome, ADHD, and autism – learn to swim. And elementary school is a great time to start swimming, even if your kids have never been swimming before.

Start swimming!
