Water Safety: Unfortunately drowning is the third biggest cause of accidental death amongst children under 5 in the UK. From the very first lesson your baby will be encouraged to hold the wall, move to safety and climb out – skills which could one day save their life.
Physical & Mental Health: Your baby will take part in a complete workout every lesson, strengthening their heart and lungs. The lessons also aid stimulation as your baby will listen and respond to commands, interact with parent and teacher, and increase their coordination and motor skills.
Promotes Bonding: This special half an hour per week dedicated solely to your baby allows quality bonding time in the water and away from the day to day stresses.
Builds Strength: Water resistance, paddling and kicking strengthens your baby’s muscles. It has been proven that due to this a swimming baby is more likely to crawl and walk before others their age.
What Our Learners Say…
“My son has attended Parent and Baby classes since he was 6 weeks old. Before our first lesson I thought it would be singing and games with the baby but I was so wrong, from the first lesson the babies are learning to relax in water and basic swimming techniques. Now at 8 months old he can float with only the aid of a swim tube. All the staff are lovely and reassuring. The bonus is that he has a big sleep after every lesson; he’s so relaxed!” – Alisha Sonmez (Zeyn, aged 8 months)
“I love our Parent and Baby class, it’s such a lovely experience to have with William. He has made so much progress in the water with Becky, who is such an amazing teacher! William is fearless in the water now at just 5months old. I would highly recommend Parent and Baby swimming lesson to everyone. I feel safe knowing that William will always be confident around water.” – Samantha Lancashire (William, aged 5 months)
