Become a PediaSwim Certified Instructor & Make a Difference in Your Community
Now that warmer weather is finally here, it’s time to start thinking about Spring and Summer fun! One of the most popular warm weather activities is swimming. Nothing beats submerging yourself in a pool of cool water on a hot sunny day! Unfortunately though, with the increase in activities taking place around water, the number of drowning cases also goes up.
Did you know that drowning is the number one cause of accidental death in children ages 0 – 4? It doesn’t even have to happen in a pool, lake or ocean. It can happen right inside your home in the bathtub, toilet or even a bucket. It is also completely preventable.
One of the best ways to combat this terrible statistic is by teach our children how to swim from a very young age. Yes, believe it or not, infants and toddlers can be taught the skills they need to survive if they ever accidentally fall into the pool, lake or other body of water.
Created by Joy McGinty, PediaSwim is a swimming program designed to teach young children how to independently survive if they ever fall into the water. She has been using this method to teach babies and toddlers swimming skills since the early 1990’s. The program focuses on teaching a basic, but effective swim-float-swim method that infants and toddlers can use for both survival and fun. In three to five weeks children learn to swim facedown, kicking in the correct posture, then roll into a calm float, then flip back over into a propulsive swim. It’s a perfect rotation of resting and breathing that ensures survival until help arrives.
