My pediatrician says its bad for babies/toddlers to swim. Is that true?

No, it is not harmful for young children to swim. Sometimes this statement is made because people feel that if a young child is taught to swim, then the parents will be more likely to let them swim while unsupervised. The skills that your children learn at Miller are NOT a replacement for parental supervision. You may also refer to the revised APA statement regarding swim lessons from 2012 on the blog section of our website.
