The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has long held that children under the age of 4 aren't considered "developmentally ready" for swim lessons. While younger kids can still enjoy the water, the belief was that motor skill development and maturity weren't yet sufficient to truly master swimming skills needed to help promote water safety. That stance has now changed. So, are children ever too young for swim lessons as a way to prevent drowning and promote water safety? (Child Care on About.com)
