Baby & Toddler

 

 

Our Baby & Toddler Swimming Programme guides you on how to introduce your little ones to the water. Our program teaches adults (parents or caregivers) how to safely interact with their babies in an aquatic environment, while promoting water confidence in infants. By learning how to move in the water, this program increases safety in the water. Join us for a safe, fun, and educational class that caters to infants ages 4 months to 3 years old.

Tots 1

Tots 1 is a swimming program designed for babies between the ages of 4 to 12 months. The primary goal of Tots 1 is to teach parents and caregivers how to safely and comfortably handle their infants in the water.

 

In these lessons, instructors will introduce basic water skills and familiarity that will help prepare the babies to eventually learn to swim. Activities focus on getting the little ones accustomed to the water through gentle submersions, floating techniques, and other gentle movements.

 

The lessons emphasize safety, with instructors guiding parents on proper holding, support, and supervision of their infants in the pool environment. Tots 1 aims to create a positive experience that builds the babies' confidence and comfort in the water from an early age.

Tots 2

Tots 2 is designed for children between the ages of 1 to 2 years old. This program builds upon the foundation established in Tots 1, with a focus on teaching parents how to safely and effectively interact with their more physically capable toddlers in the water.

 

As children transition from infancy to toddlerhood, their mobility and independence increases. Tots 2 lessons guide parents on setting appropriate boundaries and using techniques to keep their young ones safe during water activities. Instructors demonstrate proper holding, support, and supervision methods tailored to this age group.

 

In addition to safety, Tots 2 introduces more interactive water skills and experiences. Participants will learn how to introduce their toddlers to basic swimming movements, floating, and other fundamental aquatic skills. The goal is to make water time an engaging, positive experience that helps toddlers feel comfortable and confident in the pool.

Tots 3

Tots 3 is designed for children between the ages of 2 to 3 years old. This program builds upon the skills and techniques learned in the previous Tots 2 level, with a focus on guiding parents on how to safely transition their toddlers towards greater independence in the water.

 

As children reach this developmental stage, Tots 3 lessons emphasize teaching parents how to gradually allow their toddlers more freedom and control during water activities. Instructors demonstrate methods for safely supporting and supervising this transitional phase, ensuring children can explore the water in a secure manner.

 

The primary goal of Tots 3 is for children to become comfortable and confident enough to begin performing basic swimming movements, such as a simple forward paddle. Parents learn how to properly encourage and guide their toddlers towards achieving this milestone, while maintaining a safe learning environment.

 

Through engaging, play-based activities, Tots 3 participants will build upon their water safety skills, floating techniques, and introductory swimming abilities. Instructors work closely with parents to ensure a smooth progression from the more dependent Tots 2 level towards greater self-reliance in the water.

Mixed Tots

As this class is generally held during quieter times, we invites both Tots 1, 2 and 3 level students to join. Alternatives to suit each child will be given. Great for parents with children in different levels.
