Baby Swimming Lessons
Every new born baby has the potential to become a Water Baby. The sooner a child discovers the freedom of buoyancy and underwater swimming, the more relaxed and independent he or she will become.
Babies are born with over 70 neonatal reflexes. They have the ability to react to stimulation with motor responses. As most neonatal reflexes weaken during the first 6 months, babies need proper guidance to master new patterns of voluntary movement in order to explore the water in a safe and fun environment.
Swimming allows babies to exercise their muscles, which helps in development of their motor, coordination and balance. Research shows early swimming also helps baby in growing sense of self-esteem, confidence and independence. It is also helpful in literacy and numeracy development.
Our aquatic program is designed for babies from 6 months to 2 years old. Babies will learn how to enter water safely, hold their breath when they go underwater, turn and propel themselves to the side of the pool and finally get out of the pool safely.
What will babies learn in Baby Swimming Lessons?
Infants will learn how to explore in and around the water safely.
Infants will learn how to float without assistance to the ledge of pools or between adults.
Infants will learn how to hold their breath when verbal and kinesthetic trigger is given.
Infants will learn basic hand paddling and leg kicking action to move around in the water.
Infants will develop confidence in submerging underwater and discover the freedom of buoyancy.
Infants will learn how to swim between adults, grabbing shirts to pull themselves up, turn and swim back to the ledge and get out of the pool, all by themselves.
