We took a break around the holidays and never got around to going back, which is a big regret. We started the Water Babies class about a month ago after we got back from our family vacation. When we were in Florida my eyes were opened to the importance of water safety and knowing how to swim.
In the past four weeks I have seen a huge change and major improvement in Dexter’s comfort level with the pool.
We have gone from screaming throughout the entirety of the class to eagerly jumping in swimming under water.
A tip from my own experience: Timing is key. When we started this session we were going to a 10:30 am class in which I was spending the whole time trying to keep my swimsuit from being pulled down by the inconsolable, stage 5 clinger. Our instructor recommend we try an earlier class and voilà… different kid! He is now holding his breath, kicking under water and loving every minute.
That is the beauty of Emler Swim School, they offer several dates, times, and locations to accommodate any schedule.
Not only is Dexter learning to trust his teachers, follow a class curriculum, and participate in a peer driven environment, we are spending quality uninterrupted time together.
Now is the perfect time to get started on swim lessons for a confident and prepared toddler this summer!
