It is advisable that children are able to swim. Swimming is very beneficial for kid’s health and they will also be equipped with the ability to survive in the wild. But not only that, it is believed that swimming could make children’s brain smarter.
Recent studies have shown that learning to swim can make children more intelligent. A study was conducted at Griffith University that surveyed more than 10,000 children, average age of five years old at a swim class.
A joint venture project between Griffith University, Kids Alive Swim Program and Swim Australia aims to determine whether a routine swim activity gave any contribution to children’s physical, social, cognitive and language in pre-school learners or not.
Anecdotal evidence found that children who can swim tend to be more confident in their physical development than those who cannot swim who are more advanced.
According to Prof. Jorgensen, preliminary data from this study is quite positive. Children who take a swim class seem more superior in their development, whether physical, social, cognitive and language.
Drowning is the leading cause of death for kids under 5 years of age. This could happen in a pool, shower or other water sources. So the study wanted to raise people’s awareness about the importance of learning to swim from an early age.
Professor Jorgensen also said that the research is the first detailed study that determines how many developmental advantages occur in kids who learn to swim.
“Our study will monitor the 10,000 students across Australia every year for four years,” explained Prof. Jorgensen.
This study will identify some key factors in swimming programs that enhance development, such as the number of lessons per week, the child’s age when he or she begin the lessons until their start to access the swimming pool.
