Across the nation, there are two popular approaches to teaching infants to swim. The first is a fight-or-flight method, and the second is a trusting, nurturing environment.
We’re pretty sure you know where we fall.
Did you know triggering a fight or flight mindset hinders brain development? That’s the last thing you want to happen to a toddler.
At SWIMkids USA, we have worked to combat the fears of countless students. Our method is based on a loving, nurturing environment, where the child and instructor share mutual trust. While we encourage kids to push themselves outside of their comfort zones, we never take them beyond that which they can handle safely and happily.
We want them to enjoy swimming, so it becomes a lifelong skill that could save them in an emergency.
