Swim lessons are meant to be a lot of fun but they can also be lifesaving! In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends swim lessons for children as early as age 1 as a way to add another layer of protection against drowning, which is the leading cause of accidental death among children ages 1-4 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you are searching for the best place for your child to learn how to swim, look no further than MetroFamily’s Guide to Swimming Lessons in the OKC Metro. Whether you are looking for year-round instruction or seasonal lessons, we have the answer you seek!
This guide is generously sponsored by Oklahoma Swim Academy. Oklahoma Swim Academy is local and family owned, dedicated to teaching all ages a love for safe swimming! Instructors build relationships with students, creating an atmosphere of trust to promote learning. They specialize in one-on-one, private survival swim lessons that balance pushing each student toward their goals while having fun.
