The start of a lifelong relationship in the water.
Skills for life.
Aquababes(0-9 months) - We welcome babies from birth who love the freedom of movement
and buoyancy that water offers. In these classes, important signals are introduced
to create the basis for the coming levels. We introduce back floating which is a
truly magical bonding experience with your little one., together with your little
one will be gaining e.g stronger backs and greater head control, giving them the
opportunity for swimming with woggles and holding onto the side. They particularly
love to splash and blow bubbles.
Starfish (18 months - 3 years) - Your child is beginning to enjoy the water with
some new-found independence, often extremely proud of themselves as they realise
they can do so much on their own: they can enter and exit the water safely and learning
to swim short distances unaided. Many starfish will dive and collect items from the
bottom of the pool and swim underwater to mum or dad unaided. Some starfish will
also co-ordinate their swimming into a doggy paddle.
Little splashers (9 months - 18 months) - Toddlers love to splash, jump in, kick
their legs and chase the toys, as well as interact with each other children in our
fun games and activities. Most are extremely comfortable taking little swims on their
own, both with woggles and unaided.
Dippers (3-5 years) - Focusing on coordination and propulsion... although they don't
know it and with bags of confidence, they have lots of fun! Balls, woggles and floats
are used to improve alignment and style whilst confident jumping in makes an enormous
splash! Your youngster will now initiate their own swimming and before long, their
small swims get longer.
