Water, babies, laughter and learning to swim… it’s an unbeatable combination. This web site is designed to support parents and teachers seeking an expanded awareness into the gentle “whole child” approach to teaching babies how to swim. Focusing on the infant-toddler’s level of well-being and readiness, baby swimming is taken to a higher level beyond that of strictly acquisition of physical skills.
Yes, babies can learn to swim! We are passionate about the importance of learning to swim, no matter which age you start. When babies can start at four months old, we can maximize their natural affinity to water. Warm water is reminiscent of the womb for baby and helps him/her relax and bond with mom, dad, grandma, etc. The pool is a wonderful environment for them to explore, move, and enjoy in the weightlessness of water and with the most loving teacher in the world: you!
Our creative and knowledgeable teachers will lead you, and parents just like you, in activities, songs, and games that will make your baby safer and smarter in the water. This fun class is a time for you to be your child’s first teacher, bond, and help them learn to love the water. Although no amount of swim lessons can “waterproof” anyone, together we will give your baby the tools for breath control, floating, and swimming all before he/she turns two.
All babies ages 4-24 months and their caregivers are welcome in Baby Swim classes. Schedule a today to see for yourself! Then, come in to pick up your Orientation Packet, or download (see PDF link below) and pick up the rest when you arrive at your first lesson.
I may be biased but I feel as though I’ve learnt from the best! Throughout this website you will see videos of Evie and Harper as they learn to swim as well as other tips that my family has learnt over the past forty plus years. So please enjoy our website. I hope that the videos and baby swimming information that you find on our site gives you the confidence to introduce your baby to the water in a relaxed and loving environment.
One final thought! Remember learning to swim should be a happy and positive experience for both parent and child. As a mum and a swimming teacher, who has successfully taught hundreds of children to swim, I am critical of any learn to swim methods that use force to teach babies to swim. Throughout the internet you will see lots of different baby swimming methods. I urge you to follow your parental instincts and avoid any program that forces children while they are crying or showing other signs of distress.
