Why you should sign your kids up for swimming lessons this winter

This post is in partnership with Goldfish Swim School but all thoughts and opinions are my own.  This post may contain affiliate links.

Looking for a fun activity to do with your little ones this winter?

Sign them up for lessons at Goldfish Swim School.

I know you’re probably thinking I’m crazy right now.  Swim lessons in the winter? You’re not in Florida anymore, Nina.

But my boys have been in lessons now for almost two months and look forward to it every week. And with the weather getting colder, we look forward to our lessons even more. It may be getting cold out but the water is always a warm 90 degrees at Goldfish and it’s the perfect activity to get the boys out of the house and get their little bodies moving during the cold winter months.

Goldfish offers large changing rooms and even a blow dry bar, so you can come bundled up and leave nice and dry in warm clothes every time.

They also offer a large viewing room for parents to watch the lessons in progress and a small play area with fish tanks if you have little ones with you who aren’t swimming.

There are many advantages to continuing lessons throughout the winter. Avoiding a large gap between lessons prevents kids from forgetting valuable life-saving skills that they’ve learned. Plus continuing through the winter just means their skills will continue to improve and by next summer they’ll have confidence that they may not have had the year before.

I can only speak of the staff at Goldfish Swim School in Dublin because that’s where we go, but they are all absolutely amazing.  They make my boys feel so comfortable in the water and welcome them with big smiles every week.  They provide great encouragement throughout the lesson and give my boys such confidence in the water.
