As soon as a child can crawl, they are at risk for drowning. Water safety then becomes a necessity. At Miller, beginning lessons at 6 months of age allows a pleasant bonding time for child and parent as well as a necessary water safety education for both child and parent. Swim lessons can enhance psychological development through stimulation of the senses and socialization as well as improve the development of gross motor skills. Children at this age also do not know fear, so learning to respect and enjoy the water will create a positive association with water activities.
