Learning to swim should be an integral part of New Zealand life. Sadly drowning is the main cause of accidental death of children under five. For each drowning, there are many more children who are left with permanent brain damage.
Fortunately, even infants can learn skills that make them safer and healthier. And the earlier you start your child’s swimming tuition, the stronger their love of the water will be. You can also feel comfortable with your child participating in school swimming lessons and trips to home pools, water parks and the beach.
