The sooner a child gets used to being in water, the better. There are many classes available for babies and parents and although the children don't learn to swim so young, they build their confidence early on. My son started taking swimming lessons at the age of 2.5 years. By the age of 6 or 7 he was a very confident swimmer, able to go boogie boarding, snorkelling and has enjoyed many water sports since then.
AS soon as it is possible for the parents. Children are born swimmers! :)
Start them as soon as you can. Living in a water bound country like Australia, it is an essential life skill. My daughter started official lessons at 6 months and is now a very confident swimmer.
very impressive!

I agree with all of the below, as soon as possible. That way your child will become a more confident swimmer with more practise, and hence acquiring a valuable skill. Sadly, I learnt how to swim at age 11. The earlier the better.
I guess the best age is 5 or more when the child has started understanding the concept and importance of swimming and also how much fun it can be.
Although I bring my girls to the pool since they were babies, they only started formal swimming lessons at the age of 3. I think it's the best age as they understand instructions better.
