Study shows children are smarter if they do swimming lessons
28 February 2017
Griffith University has done a study on babies who do swimming lessons over three years. The great news is that babies and toddlers that do swimming lessons tend to be better than the normal population in regards to physical and mental development. Fine motor, Co-ordination, literacy and numeracy skills are far better for children who have been participating in swimming lessons since they were babies.
Swimming lessons provide a language rich environment, with direction and counting. This helps toddlers to be better prepared for when they start school. Swimming lessons help these children not only learn to swim but also to engage in learning in other areas.
