Swimming nappies are to be worn at every lesson. Each class consists of twelve exercise’s allowing the baby to learn the fundamental skills and love for water. This is a patient process and we work according to each child’s own development and learning ability, as each child is unique. Your water babies learn and develop by interacting with and watching their fellow classmates, and this allows the parents some fun social interaction as well.
Starting at 6 months is the perfect age as most babies have excellent head control; this also encourages water awareness, eliminating fear. We use a gentle approach when introducing submersion. Swimming lessons are very important as it enhances and promotes listening skills, concentration, eye contact, breath control and the use of the child’s senses. Swimming lessons are also excellent for developing various muscle groups, muscle tone, co-ordination and balance. Plenty of hugs and kisses are encouraged.
