Despite the fact that Des Moines winters are filled with snowy days and frigid temperatures, families shouldn’t put their swimsuits and goggles away!
A Head Start on Safer Swimming
The swim and water safety experts at Goldfish Swim School Urbandale know that the winter months are actually the BEST time of year for families to be thinking about water and swim safety because kids who are going to be safer swimmers next summer are getting started in lessons NOW.
Swimming is an activity that requires consistency and regular practice to see progress. By starting lessons in January or February, kids can see results in time for pool and beach season in June (or that spring break trip you are already looking forward to!).
The Goldfish Way
Each child learns new skills differently and at their own pace so starting in swim lessons now is the best way to ensure progress by summer. Goldfish Swim School has a proven curriculum that ensures that kids master water safety fundamentals and continually build on their skills. The Goldfish team loves celebrating each student’s progress each and every week!
Indoor swimming is a great (and warm) winter activity for kids and parents — especially in Goldfish’s 90-degree pool. There’s scientific evidence that play-based learning is the optimal way for kids to learn new skills. The Goldfish Science of SwimPlay® curriculum provides a strong foundation for intellectual and emotional growth, creativity, problem-solving and more!
