Every child can learn to swim & get out of a pool if they can crawl.
Drowning is the #1 cause for accidental death in children ages 2-10. You can be the most caring and attentive parent and still have your child fall in some form of a body of water and drown. Sadly, no parent is exempt from this sort of terrible accident.
Why play roulette, spending years of time and energy on lessons that take a year or two, to achieve these life saving skills if your child was to accidentally fall into a body of water.
Most children can learn to swim in 8 lessons and are then able to save themselves by swimming to the side of the pool and climbing out unassisted if they do happen to fall in.
Ms. Cathy firmly believes that teaching your child to swim is just as important as covering an electrical outlet.
