How do you choose the right flotation device for your child?
No one is born afraid of the water. Fear of the water is taught. We pick it up from the different queues of the people around us and the experiences that we have with water.
Sometimes a fear of water is actually just a lack of experience or interaction with the water, and so it's actually just a fear of the unknown.
One thing we always tell our parents in our Parent-and-Me classes is that the attitudes and beliefs about the water come from their experiences at home.
Welcome to Safety Before Skill! Thank you so much for choosing us, the premiere private lesson swim school in Central Arkansas.
We wanted to share a few things with you to make you first lesson a successful one.
Last week, we randomly interviewed some of our parents at the West Little Rock pool to ask them how they define swimming and what their goals are for their children in swim lessons.
So, what do our parents have to say about what swimming is and what their goals for their children are in swim lessons?
Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for children ages 1-4 years and the #2 cause of accidental death for children ages 4-14 years.
At Safety Before Skill Swim School, we are dedicated to helping reduce that statistic by increasing the number of people who are enrolled in swim lessons and educating swimmers and parents how to be safer in the water.
Because of this, we have decided to implement a new program into our swim school called Water Smart Babies Rx. Water Smart Babies Rx is a “swim lessons prescription” given to parents at their child’s 9 or 12 month check up.
