Baby & Me Swim Lessons

At Arkansas Swim Academy, our Baby & Me swim lessons are structured as Baby & Me classes in order for your baby to get comfortable in the water with a trusted guardian. We create the perfect environment for babies to gain water safety skills starting at 6 months old up to 3 years old. Our program uses a child-centered approach to teach children how to rescue themselves in the water. Warm water, songs and games allow infants and babies to have fun while learning the importance of buoyancy and water safety. A parent or guardian accompanies the child in the water for our infant swim lessons to ensure that the child feels safe and secure. We have a 6:1 student to teacher ratio.

According to the American Association of Pediatrics, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children ages one to four. Incorporating swim lessons into your child’s early development is one layer of protection parents can take to keep their children safer in and around water.

Studies have shown that children who participate in swim lessons at an early age are developmentally ahead of their non-swimming peers. The Griffith Study found that children who participate in swim lessons are more advanced in physical, visual-motor and mathematic skills as well as in literacy and numeracy skills.
