Miss 4 adores swimming. I started taking her at 5. 5 months. I enrolled her for two reasons. One, because swimming is a life skill that every Australian should master. Two, as a means of socialisation, being the first child.
Miss 1 attends the pool every week but we have not yet enrolled her in lessons. The reason why is because for Miss 4, the first year or two was all about water confidence. If she had fallen in the water, she may have still drowned. Now, help she is able to swim to the edge and cling on at worst or climb out at best.
So, in time, and we will enrol Miss 1in swimming lessons but not yet.
