In 2001, the American Academy of Paediatrics released guidelines recommending children under two years have no screen exposure and children over two should have no more than two hours for entertainment per day. read more

Are there any real benefits in early infant swimming? The answer is a definite yes!

Great feature story from the fabulous Alena from Aquatots

http://http://aquatots.com.au/

When to begin swimming lessons is a topic that is often discussed, by both parents and the swimming industry. Here in Australia most formal swimming classes begin around six months, but is there any real advantage to beginning even earlier than this?

Babies that start swimming by around six weeks of age, and are attending the pool consistently, can be swimming by the age of 18 months.

This early introduction to the water ensures babies are safer in and around an aquatic environment at a young age.There is a growing body of evidence that at six weeks babies can actually begin learning to swim – with their parent’s help of course.
