Swim lessons meant to be a lot of fun but they can also be life saving! In fact, the The American Academy of Pediatrics now 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!
