Teaching your little ones to swim is an amazing life skill and as we’re lucky enough to live in Dubai, your kids will likely experience water in a variety of different forms, whether it’s at a swimming pool, the beach, or even a water park. We all want to make the most of these opportunities yet, at the back of our minds, there’s always a worry about their safety.
If you get children used to the water, their confidence will increase and their awareness to help keep themselves safe whilst having fun and will help shift some of that constant worry away from us as parents. Learning to swim can help increase awareness of the water for safety, and confidence in the water as well as increase self-esteem and develop social and interpersonal skills.
Plus, swimming is not only a great way to exercise (and let’s face it any form of exercise that is enjoyed is always a winner!), but it also helps achieve developmental skills quicker such as gross motor skills, and hand-eye coordination as well as improving muscle tone.
