Holding your baby in water is a fantastic bonding experience and rewarding too, as you bond with your baby through interaction and developing trust, letting them float on their backs whilst singing twinkle twinkle little star and looking into their eyes is beautiful. We teach parents to take their baby under water from the very beginning which will encourage free movement and confidence in the water from a very early age and it is fabulous when you get the chance to sit on the bottom of the pool and see your baby swim to you!
Socially your baby will interact with other babies and join in the fun and games and as they get older sing along to the songs. For parents it is also the ideal opportunity to meet other parents and carers and form lasting friendships as your babies grow.
We also run classes for toddlers
children and teenagers, and although most of our children have come through the Baby Swimmers programme, others have joined at a later stage and also benefited from our classes. We include recognized swimming strokes and repetition of these as well as still concentrating on water confidence, with the main aim of your toddlers feeling their natural buoyancy, which is why buoyancy aids are generally not used.
For the older children we have our Swimmers Academy classes
where your child will develop their stamina, swimming technique for all strokes and also learn life saving skills.
However the most important aspect is for you both to have fun!
