The Bubble Babies approach to Baby Swimming has been inspired by studies of the Amazonian and Polynesian peoples who teach their babies to swim in a wonderfully playful and happy manner in the warm water of the river pools.
During our carefully planned and progressive lessons, we will combine songs, games and races to teach invaluable aquatic skills in an equally fun and dynamic way. The instructor will work closely alongside you in the water and demonstrate clearly how you can both enjoy the water without being restricted by armbands! You will learn several methods of holding your baby to stimulate movement of the legs and arms and you will also enjoy the sensations of swimming with your baby close to your body. We will go underwater by submerging, diving and jumping and will use various swimming aids to encourage your child towards independence in the water. Over time they will develop experience of all the different strokes and will enjoy progressing through the Swimming Teacher’s Association Award Scheme. All along, you will be acquiring essential safety skills.
Don’t worry if you are not a strong swimmer yourself; there is plenty to do whatever your level! Swimming not only provides many physiological and psychological development benefits, but is also a unique opportunity for you and your offspring to relax together and bond.
Witness your child’s confidence grow as he looks forward to and enjoys Bubble Babies lessons and goes on to acquire that invaluable lifelong love of the water.
