The Best Age To Start Swimming Lessons For Babies

Your baby’s motor development will progress rapidly, so it’s best to take advantage of their strong affinity for movement and buoyancy early on. Their fat composition helps them float better and they’re also more inclined to learn breath control techniques easier. The benefits of starting as soon as you can extends to capitalising on your baby’s dive reflexes before it diminishes. This promotes higher coordination, muscle development and movement of arms and legs. You can encourage your baby’s growth based on their natural aptitude by enrolling them in classes that allow them to progress at their own pace. With their natural affinity for the water, familiarisation with submersion will help them better adapt into stronger, safer swimmers.

Parent Engagement In Personalised Baby Swimming Lessons

Our personalised classes allow for a unique parent and child bonding experience. Our philosophy of having parents complete the same tasks as the baby will create a safer and more secure learning environment. Emma’s Babyswim provides an age appropriate atmosphere for all our classes. Our programs are designed to support your baby’s social, intellectual, physical, and emotional development. We teach your children to gain a healthy respect for the water and adopt water safety behaviors. You will also be equipped to handle them safely in and around the water outside classroom environments.

Our terms are 12 weeks in length and consist of weekly half hour classes. Fun, intimate and educational, learning to swim should be a priority for every family. It’s an essential life skill that will play a key role in helping to prevent accidental drowning―something far too common among children. Furthermore, with the right foundation, your child will be able to love the water and enjoy swimming as a pastime in the long run. They will also be in a better position to pursue swimming competitively should they wish to.

What Our Families Say

My 5 year old was absolutely terrified of swimming. After 2 terms at Emma’s Babyswim she now swims independently. Before coming to Emma’s Babyswim we have tried multiple chain swimming schools with no success. The teachers just couldn’t connect with my daughter. At Emma’s Babyswim she finally found her confidence. Teacher Rebecca is highly skilled and extraordinary on a interpersonal level! Thank you so much for your excellence.
