5 tips to help your kids remember everything they learned over summer:
⭐️ Practice when you get the chance! If the weather is nice, jump in with your kids on the weekend or go night swimming! Practice face in and bubbles and small glides, even floating
⭐️ Vacation! always a great time (and a great excuse) to get in the pool and swim.
⭐️ Show your kids a few of the pictures and/or videos you took of them over the summer - remind them of how well they swim and ask them to talk about what they remember about swimming lessons!
⭐️ Start early in the spring. Believe it or not, this is such a great time to get some lessons in - gives them a head start before summer and they’ll progress even faster.
⭐️ Don’t panic!! If none of these things happen and your child seems to forget everything, I promise that about 2 weeks into next season it’ll all come back and after about a month of swimming again, there’s usually a huge jump forward in accomplishments.
3️⃣ Important Summer Safety Tips!
🐞 When using sunscreen and mosquito spray, always apply the sunscreen first, then wait a few minutes and apply the bug repellant.
🌊 Make sure to have cold bottled water by the pool when kids are swimming because they will still get dehydrated and need to drink regularly.
🍔 While eating a large meal or anything dairy isn’t advised before swimming, small snacks are okay, such as some fruit, vegetables or crackers.
👎 It is not, however, advisable to allow kids to ‘snack while they swim’ as they can choke.
🤝 If you are sending your child to someone’s house who has a pool, make sure you are very clear about what is and isn’t allowed for your child if you aren’t there.

There are definitely ways in which you can engage with your little ones to help facilitate learning while practicing swim skills from the safety of your own home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Believe us when we say, even playtime in the water teaches your children about swimming and safety. If you have a pool or whirlpool bath, you can absolutely help your children practice their skills, play with them in a variety of creative ways and keep their love for the water fresh in their minds so that when it comes time to resume lessons, they’re already completely acclimated!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(**Please note with whirlpool bath's, the temp should not exceed 94 degrees, and no jumping allowed.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’d just like to post a very important PS to yesterday’s reaction piece on the drowning that took place during a group swim lesson.
My goal is not to condemn group lessons. I myself, taught at the Y for years as a young instructor and then became an aquatics director. Group lessons can be a great, affordable, and fun way for children to learn to swim. Group lessons can be safe and productive when they are staffed with properly trained instructors and maintain a responsible ratio of instructor to student balance. Ideally 3-1, any more than that should have an assistant instructor AND a lifeguard stationed directly in front of littles who are non-swimmers/beginners.
💙 Our passion for water safety education is the cornerstone of our mission within the kidSwim community. We also believe, strongly, in extending that mission to the greater LA communities. All children deserve to grow up feeling confident and safe in the water. This promotes inclusion, understanding, and a stronger sense of community.
This month, in honor of ✨✨, we will be spotlighting famous swimmers, water safety advocates, and organizations within the Black community that work diligently to bring access to swim lessons and water safety to marginalized communities who need it.

💦 Our program is designed to enhance and support those skills and that growth. In addition, we add safety words and physical skills that are developmentally appropriate to the age group.
👶Aligning with the American Academy of Pediatrics’ guidelines for developmental milestones, we address swim skills in the same format that they do, from a motor/communication/sensory framework. Our developmental swim method approach teaches kids to love the water at each age and stage, focusing on specific motor/communication/sensory skill development.
🔑 This is the key to real learning — meeting each child where they are developmentally. Once they’ve gained confidence and acquired specific water skills, we can push them beyond their comfort zone.

💙 Swimming for the Special Needs Child 💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In terms of working with children with special needs, we feel that the water is a superior form of exercise and incorporated into any OT or PT routine, it only enhances advancements and improves skills, coordination, and strength. It may sound extreme but there really is no downside to incorporating swim into the routine for any child with special needs. Every color, size, age, skill level, disability, injury, illness, mental or physical challenge. ALL are welcome and even more amazing: ALL can, in one form or another...SWIM. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Within the next few weeks, we will be hosting important conversations with advocates and organizations like @swirl_global and @ snapwithsteppingstones to discuss inclusion for special needs swimmers and their families. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stay tuned for more information! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
