Jump into a lifetime of water safety at Aqua-Tots Swim Schools! Aqua-Tots has been the leader in the swim instruction industry since 1991, offering year-round, indoor swim classes for children 4 months to 12 years old. Our Aqua-Tots Swim Journey consists of 8 Levels of comprehensive curriculum that is tried, true and trusted to teach more than five million swim lessons each year all over the world!
May is National Water Safety Month, and there is no better time for the children of our community to learn the most important water safety basics like controlled movements, breath control, and boundaries near water. In fact, the National Institutes of Health states, “Participation in formal swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages one to four years old.” Water is everywhere; however, it is especially present this time of year with pool parties, lake days, and beach vacations just around the corner.
By participating in year-round swim lessons, you propel your child’s swim abilities and retention of skills they learn in lessons. Literature published by the American Psychological Association states that, “Automaticity is usually only achieved through extensive rehearsal and repetition.” Our goal for all our students is that if they fall into a pool, they should be able to instinctively roll over, float, find air, get to the edge of a pool, and climb out. To achieve an automatic response, repetition and practice play a crucial role in achieving that goal.
With 40+ hours of in-classroom and in-water training, our friendly Aqua-Tots Water Safety Certified Swim Instructors are ready to welcome your swimmer into our 90-degree pool. At Aqua-Tots, we believe there is always time to learn how to swim – at any age, in any season! Additionally, as we are midway through Autism Awareness Month, we are excited to highlight our Special Needs Aquatic Program, or S.N.A.P. S.N.A.P. is designed to create lessons tailored to each child’s special needs and abilities. Swimming is an effective means of increasing motor function, developing safety skills, and comfort around the water. We want to help students of all abilities develop a life-long love for water.
We invite Southwest Ohio Parent readers to join our Aqua-Tots family and are currently offering a waived annual registration fee (a $50 value) to kickstart your child’s swim journey when you enroll in April or May 2023! We have locations in Beavercreek and Springboro.
