Children can start survival swim lessons as early as 6 months old. Ideally, every child should learn survival swim skills before they begin walking. Water sources are everywhere and drowning can happen in as little as 2 inches of water. As your child is able to access water sources, they need the skins to turn their bodies away from the water and breathe calmly. However, we teach all ages! Any child can benefit from the skills of the swim-float-swim technique to survive a water accident.
