Why Start Swimming at an Early Age? For the Intellectual Benefits.
Among the obvious motivations of social interaction, water safety and drowning prevention, a recent study out of Australia's Griffith University shows that kids who are swimming at an early age are actually achieving key learning milestones up to 15 months earlier than non-swimming children. These specific milestones include categories such as physical (motor skills), cognitive, socio-emotional and linguistic. We strongly encourage all of our parents to watch these videos and view the results of the Griffith study:
