We are finally into the dog days of summer, high 80s low 90s here in Central Ohio which means we have been at our local swimming pool 4-5 times a week!
This year we are trying something a little different and going more often in the evenings when the sun has cooled a bit. Also, it’s helpful to have my husband with us (because I’m super pregnant, swollen and slow, ha!).
One thing that has changed drastically this summer is the kids confidence in the water. Luke and Eden are off to the “big pool” and I don’t have to worry about them one bit. All of the credit goes to Goldfish Swim School!
Y’all know I’m biased, as we’ve been taking weekly swim lessons there for more than 2 years now… but I’ve heard other friends talk about their kids swim lessons and how they just don’t compare to Goldfish. I’m convinced it is (hands down!) the very best place to enroll your children to learn how to swim.
That being said, I’m sure you’ve seen quite a few stories on the news about drownings and swim safety. It’s heart-wrenching. I wanted to take a moment to share a great letter from the Founders of Goldfish Swim School. They write:
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced that it has published updated recommendations on water safety to prevent drowning in children. As parents and founders of Goldfish Swim School, we could not be more pleased about this important update as we too are committed to education on water safety. We commend Nicole Hughes for her hard work and the AAP for making these very important changes. We appreciate the attention put on the value of swim lessons being beneficial for children at a young age, in addition to the importance of vetting experienced swim lesson programs and well-trained instructors.
As drowning remains the number one cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4, we must all work together to provide education, resources, and lessons for prevention.
As Goldfish Swim School continues to expand its footprint across North America, our number one focus and main priority will remain the same – educating children on water safety while teaching them how to swim and respect the water.
