Our Parent and Baby classes are for swimmers who are age three months – two years. Learning should always be relaxed, fun & through play!
Each week a parent joins their baby in the water to help them develop their breath control, floating, kicking, grip and water confidence whilst learning through play. We follow the Swim England Discovery Duckling awards program (Discovery Duckling Awards) which aims to help babies, toddlers and parents to become happy and water confident together.
Our Teachers instruct all lessons from the poolside to ensure they have an overview of the whole class, this also ensures that the correct practice is being performed safely at all times.
We are also an Aqua Sensory Advanced Swim School we share the ethos that children & parents need time to develop, learn & explore together at their own pace – the pool is the perfect place!
We have a maximum of only eight “pairs” booked into each class, to ensure that there are enough parents & babies attending each week to give the class group a fun interaction and social bonding experience, but still keeping the group size small enough to ensure that we deliver first class lessons in a safe, calm and relaxed learning environment.
Please Note: We do not include any forced submersion during our classes. We believe that any submersion should only be included when the child is ready and willing to try. During classes we add submersion by using the collection of “toys and sinkers ” from under the water surface to get swimmers to voluntarily go under the water when they are ready. We have one parent only accompanying their baby each week, this ensures that we do not end up with more adults than babies in the class! You can of course alternate each week so that both parents have the opportunity to enjoy the classes.
The double Swim Nappy system must be used during these classes www.splashabout.com.
You are able to join at any time during a course if space is available and pay only for the remaining classes from that point.
