How important are swimming lessons for Bacchus Marsh children?

children swimmingIn the summer months we’re reminded of the importance of water safety.  With many families vacationing near the beach, enjoying pool parties, or simply spending fun afternoons at the Bacchus Marsh pools, we know parents want to be able to enjoy the day splashing around with their kids rather than worrying.

While most primary school aged children do some form of swimming as part of the school program; however, many Bacchus Marsh families choose to put their children into swimming lessons before they’ve reached school age.  It seems Bacchus Marsh families like the ‘learn to swim’ programs on offer in and around Bacchus Marsh, and like the confidence and survival techniques the programs offer their children.  Paul Sadler Swimland offer programs for children of all ages over 4 months, and no doubt there are others.  We’d love you to share your children’s ‘learn to swim’ experiences in the comments below.  Is there a program that has been great for your child?  Have you had an instructor worthy of a special mention?  Please share below and help other Bacchus Marsh families find the right swimming instruction program for their children, and ensure all Bacchus Marsh children are water safe this summer and for many summers to come.
