Baby & Me – Learn To Swim
Age: 4 months – 3 years
A sequential, developmentally skill based, water awareness program for babies and toddlers from 4 months to 3 years of age, with a parent or carer in the water. Babies and parents are introduced to, and learn to love and respect the water in a fun and colourful environment using toys, songs and skill based activities that enhance confidence and the learning of basic safety and water skills which are reliant on education, not just entertainment. We believe that teaching skills slowly and well in a progressive, sequential program is vital to overall future stroke development.
Our emphasis is on babies learning to:
• submerge confidently only when displaying “readiness” and on cue
• demonstrate balance, buoyancy and adjustment
• on entry, turning back to, and grasping the wall
• roll and float on their back and kick to safety
Classes are held Monday – Friday mornings from 9am – 12 noon
and Saturday mornings from 8am – 12.15pm. Each lesson is of a half hour duration.
