Question
Dear Kristina

Which would be the perfect time for my child to learn Swimming ?

My Baby Son is 2 years, 6 months old.

I will enroll him to the nearest Swimming Club as per your guidance.

Generally, what would be the ideal time to learn Swimming ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi,
I feel the earlier the better in regards to swimming.  They can start out as babies and learn instinctual movements to help prevent them from drowning.  Of course I would only recommend doing this with trained and certified professionals.  I think your son is fine to start learning to swim at 2 and there is no downside to starting them early.
Good luck!
