Goldfish Swim School Mundelein is a Little Lake County advertising partner. Today they are sharing how you can start planning for a safer summer now at Goldfish Swim School Mundelein.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger. Drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for kids under age five. These statistics are very sobering, but there are steps you can take to make sure that your child is safe in and around water.
The best time to think about swim and water safety is RIGHT NOW. The American Red Cross says that the number one thing parents can do to prevent accidental drowning in enroll kids in weekly swim lessons to ensure that they have the basic safety skills they need to be safe in the water. Use this time to work on building up critical swim skills so that your family is ready to SAFELY hit the beach and pool this summer!
So why spend time in the pool NOW?
1. Swim lessons reduce the risk of drowning. You read the stats above, right? Swimming is an essential life skill and you want to be confident that your child has mastered it. Kids are around water all of the time. Arm your child with the skills they need to be water-safe — now and in the future. Getting swim-ready for spring break and summer vacation starts in the winter months. Indoor swimming is also a great year-round activity! Consistent lessons are the best way for kids to learn how to swim because they are able to retain what they learn with regular practice. Plus, each child learns new skills differently and at their own pace so starting in the winter is the best way to ensure progress for the summer months.
2. Goldfish Swim School makes learning to swim FUN! Not all swim lessons are created equal. Goldfish Swim School Mundelein is 100% devoted to teaching kids how to swim. Our learn-to-swim curriculum is the very best one out there and we know how to get even the most reluctant swimmers comfortable in the water. Our program is different because of our warm, welcoming facility, highly trained instructors, small class sizes and shiver-free 90-degree pools.
Goldfish uses the Science of SwimPlay® incorporating play-based learning in a fun and safe environment. We’ve taken everything that science says is the ideal way for kids to learn – guided play, fun, safe environments and achievements – and packaged it up into one experience. Decades of scientific research tell us that guided play is the optimal way for kids to learn, and it provides a strong foundation for intellectual and emotional growth, creativity, problem-solving and academic knowledge. All your child will feel is fun, but we know there’s much more happening under the surface. Read about Rosie’s experience with Goldfish Swim School Mundelein’s lessons.
3. Strength in numbers + consistency! Often times, younger swimmers are nervous about getting into the water without mom or dad for the first time. Swim safety experts find that young kids do better when they are with other kids their same age. Goldfish offers small group swim lessons (4:1 max student to teacher ratio). This ratio ensures that little swimmers get the individual attention they need while also benefiting from the presence of peers. If swimmers see their peers participating in a skill taught by their instructor, they are often more likely to join in. Ongoing, consistent, week-to-week instruction helps kids to make real progress in lessons.
We also know that convenience counts. We offer every level of swim lessons at times that are convenient for you and your child moves up to the next level when he or she is ready (and you keep the same time slot!). Families with kids of different ages and skill levels can have all of their swimmers in the pool during at the same time and you can always schedule a makeup lesson if you need to miss a class. We want to make the learn-to-swim process as easy as possible for families with young children!
All of the wonderful benefits of swimming come with time and repetition. Consistent, year-round swim lessons are the best way to achieve that result. We hope to see your family at our pool this winter!
