As a parent, giving your child the resources to develop self-confidence is always a priority and after years of disrupted swimming lessons, it’s never been more important to get back in the pool. Research has shown that getting your kid into swimming lessons at an early age can be a real asset in developing self-awareness and confidence in and around water. Getting your child into swimming lessons at any age is not only a great way to have some fun, but can help build independence in the water and confidence in the pool!
Introducing your baby to the pool
Baby swimming lessons will help your little ones drastically and increase their sense of independence and trust in the water. Babies can join our Baby Play classes from 12 weeks old and exposure to the water at an early age is such a fun way for them to build confidence and trust when swimming. Starting early can help even the smallest swimmers feel comfortable in a pool environment, and feel at ease when getting their face wet. When introducing your new swimmer into an unfamiliar environment like the pool, the goal is to take it a comfortable pace. Remember it’s all about having fun and familiarising your tiny tot with the new pool routine. Before you know it, you’ll have a real water baby that just can’t wait to have a splash!
Build confidence in the water with toddlers
Swim lessons for toddlers are a great way to reinforce the skills necessary to build confidence in the pool. By providing a relaxed and safe atmosphere, like our shallow pools and qualified instructors, helps your toddler feel at ease. Learning the basic swimming skills like putting their face in the water, kicking with a kickboard and body positioning in the pool can help to break down some fear about the environment, and can be a great way to build confidence in the water. Our Foundation Program is specifically designed to give the best possible introduction to swimming and get that water-confidence climbing! Because building a fun and safe relationship with pool time is a great way to build confidence, in and outside the pool.
Developing competent little swimmers
Swimming lessons for bigger kids are just as important to develop confidence in the water. Through technique progression, familiarisation and water safety knowledge, children can trust in their abilities and have fun learning new skills. Hitting milestones, mastering new swimming techniques and gaining knowledge of water safety can instil so much confidence and self-pride in your little one. Getting your child swimming lessons creates a competent and courageous swimmer that loves to jump in the pool and have some fun!
