What the course will cover
During the course you will be taught different types of baby holds in the water, how to support your baby, floating, how to carry out submersions and to encourage independent breathing, and how to develop self-propelling skills. All activities are taught through fun and play, with plenty of nursery rhymes and games to keep your babies and toddlers engaged.
It’s through the fun and games where we progressively develop your babies natural reflexes in the water to encourage voluntary swimming movements, which builds the key foundation for your baby to swim unaided.
The most important thing to remember is that your baby or toddler will progress at their own pace and when they are ready. There is no pressure at anytime, and ultimately we are here to help you introduce your baby or toddler, to the aquatic environment in a safe way, and to enjoy the new experience and special bond it brings. This in turn is also the initial stage of preparing them for water based activities, and life saving skills, later in life.
