Swim Safe Now bases their lessons on behavioral science, utilizing sensorimotor learning, and positive reinforcement during their one-on-one individualized lessons. They teach based on your child’s unique abilities and skill sets. They truly value the importance of your child being competent AND confident when in the water. Their goal is for your child to learn how to swim, survive if needed, and thoroughly enjoy the water safely. These are some of the reasons I chose this program for my own girls. I wanted an instructor who was going to educate me and teach my children proper water safety. I love sharing the little knowledge I do have with other moms any chance I can. Specifically living in Florida, water safety is so important with young children.
So what sets Swim Safe Now apart from any other swim lessons or instructors? Swim Safe Now teaches water safety techniques that build a solid foundation and creates a healthy relationship with the water. Listed below are some of the fundamental differences that really sets this program apart.
Discover the difference:
Infants are taught how to roll onto their back independently and breath until rescued. After the age of one, in addition to the infant rollback, your child if walking will learn how to do the swim-float-swim sequence. These are key aquatic survival skills for all ages. Swim Safe Now also teaches your child how to hold their breath as water rises on their body. They do NOT teach to blow bubbles underwater as this encourages them to open their mouth underwater and exhale all of their air.
Did you know that 86% of children who drown are fully clothed? For this reason, after mastering their skill set, these practices are also done fully clothed. In order to learn to problem solve, after the skills are mastered, simulated fall in scenarios are practiced under careful instructor supervision.
Swim Safe Now instructors have spent over 100 hours of in-water, hands-on training with infants and children of all ages. Training doesn’t stop in the water, these instructors are also trained in behavioral science, child psychology and anatomy and physiology. Ongoing continuing education and recertifications are required as well to maintain the highest level of knowledge. Swim Safe Now instructors are also all trained in CPR and First Aid. They are also required to go through an extensive background check. These instructors are certified and well trained in safety and child behaviors so they can best serve your child while teaching them to swim and enjoy the water in the safest way possible.
Speaking from experience, Swim Safe Now is the Best in Brevard County. I am so glad that I connected with them before my daughter was even one. Living in Florida and being surrounded by water everywhere, swim lessons were non negotiable. Giving myself peace of mind and knowing before my daughter was even one, she was taught survival skills and knew how to float was the best decision. This created nothing but a healthy relationship with water. She is to this day an actual fish. If you are looking for the best swim instructors, who truly know the science behind what they are teaching and truly care for your children. Look no further.
