Why a Pool is a Learning Tool for Children

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017
Savannah pools installation backyard

An above ground pool is a unique environment for children with disabilities to grow their confidence, develop a life skill, and improve their motor skills.

As science and technology advance more rapidly than ever; doctors, educators, and parents are getting a better understanding of autism, learning disabilities, and educational programs which help facilitate a child’s path to learning. Parents are taking on more and more responsibility as joint educators, and they are contributing more than ever to their children’s learning process, a job once left almost exclusively to the school system. With the shift toward an educational partnership between the schools and a child’s guardians, many families are facilitating learning-based environments within their homes. A child does not need to fall on the autism spectrum to benefit from additional time and attention devoted solely to their intellectual development. All children benefit when they have parents and educators interested and dedicated to their success.

Savannah backyard pools installation

Children can learn from so many other places than just a book.

One great way to help stimulate an atmosphere for children to learn is to create a fun and exciting environment which will interest and excite the student. This task can be a challenge for parents since the child is so familiar with the home. Creating a stimulating environment is even more challenging for parents with autistic children who seek comfort in routine and familiarity. One developmental tool which is hardly discussed as an educational forum, but which can have tremendous benefits, is a pool. A swimming pool is an exciting environment for children of all ages and intellectual levels. In addition to being a refreshing, vacation-like getaway, a pool is also a place for children and adults alike, to build their confidence and be physically active. One of the most significant benefits to incorporating swimming pool activities into a child’s daily or weekly routine is that learning to swim is a life skill.

For parents with children, regardless of whether or not they have a disability, a swimming pool is a unique, creative, and inspiring place to develop physically, emotionally, and intellectually. However, according to Parents magazine, “‘Teaching a child on the spectrum is an uphill battle if you don’t address the fears and behaviors,’ says Andrew Ross. “When it comes down to swimming, it’s kicking, breathing, and strokes—nothing more. But if a child is fearful, you need to get them to relax and trust you. Group lessons often don’t provide this opportunity.’” If a parent has a child who could benefit from learning to swim or water therapy, the last thing they want to worry about is a crowded pool environment. A great option for parents is to install an above ground pool in their yard.

An above ground pool is a beneficial option because it allows the child to be in a comfortable and quiet environment, their yard. Lessons with swim instructor or occupational therapist can take place at the family’s convenience, so it is easier to set a manageable routine for the child. For parents of children without autism, a pool is a stimulating place to have fun, be physically active and develop the skill of swimming, something they can rely on throughout their life.

Rec Warehouse is the largest reseller of above ground pools in the Southeast. The President, David Doebler, has been in the business almost his entire life – he was the company’s first employee, and now he owns and manages three retail locations all staffed and merchandised to help homeowners find the perfect above ground pool for their backyard. Since David has such a wealth of swimming pool knowledge and is dedicated to sharing his insights with his employees, the staff is well-equipped to answer any questions you may have during your decision-making process. For those with questions, who are unable to go to a brick and mortar location, there is even a live chat option on the website.

In addition to the sale of above ground swimming pools, Rec Warehouse also sells hot tubs, which are great supplements to water exercise and can be used by adults and children for water therapy and relaxation. They stock outdoor kitchens, misting fans, and patio furniture so parents can properly equip their entire backyard for entertaining and relaxing while their children learn the importance of swimming and proper breathing techniques.

Parents who install an above ground pool in their yard help alleviate some of the anxiety children with developmental disabilities face when they go to a public swimming pool. An at-home above ground pool allows parents, swim instructors, or therapists to teach children the fundamentals of swimming in a comfortable and familiar environment, their own backyard.
