At Montessori House Brussels, we enjoy taking the children who have reached the age of four for swimming classes and there are many benefits for them.
Developmentally, most children are ready for swimming lessons when they are about 4 years old. By this age, most children can coordinate their movements to swim strokes and kick their feet, which are the key skills needed for successful swimming. The swimming lessons are essential teaching water safety skills; to stretch out on your back while breathing well, keeps you afloat without any significant effort. At the same time, swimming can provide a wealth of mental, social, and safety benefits that other exercises just can’t offer.
