Our aim is to teach parents/carers the correct method to teach their child to swim. The foundations of the program are based on the reflexes and responses of babies and young children. We aim to provide positive associations with swimming and the lessons are informative, friendly and lots of fun. Stringent health and safety procedures are rigorously followed and all of our teachers are fully qualified holding STA and or ASA certification in addition to our extensive in-house specialist training program.
We encourage the early development of baby’s natural swimming skills, enhancing their general health, awareness, eating and sleeping patterns and strengthening their cardio-respiratory functions. Our teaching methods are based on persuasive exercises relating to the child’s stage of physical and social development. These exercises all aim towards the beginnings of learning to swim.
We use gentle submersions if adult and baby are willing. We never ask you to do anything you do not want to. We use submersions as part of the technique to teach breath control, which is a fundamental part of swimming. We teach basic water safety and confidence techniques and use nursery songs in the toddler classes to engage the children and provide positive associations with swimming. However, we are more than simply a splash and fun class – we aim to lay the foundations of future swimming.
