BABY SWIMMING

Courses which progress at a pace that both you and your child are comfortable with.

Our carefully structured courses promote safe practices and water confidence, but above all provide a positive, fun environment for babies to develop their natural affinity with water.

 

All our classes are child led and we never do any forced underwater swims.  Everything is done at a pace that both you and your little one are happy with and sometimes babies will progress differently within each class but our classes are small and allow us to adapt to suit.  We encourage you and your little one to swim and enjoy the water together, but do understand that parents are sometimes nervous so we allow for that too.

 

When your baby is small we teach you how to handle your baby in the water, how to swim with them and we also impart gentle progressive methods towards unaided swimming without ever resorting to forceful conditioning. The sooner a child discovers the freedom of buoyancy, the more relaxed and independent he or she will be in the water.

 

We take babies from around 12 weeks old (or 12 lbs) up to 4 years. Some of the many benefits to baby swimming:

 

  • Encourages the development of a baby's natural swimming reflex
  • Strengthens your baby's heart, lungs and respiratory system which also aids development of the brain
  • Often improves eating and sleeping patterns
  • Improves core muscle development and co-ordination
