This is a vital time for your beautiful child to learn to swim. The first 12 months it is an innate skill as they have spent the time in their mother womb. We take the time to develop breath cues and confidence with you and your baby to encourage and develop the ability to swim with a kind and gentle approach. The care giver and baby will need to be in the water together, exploring and connecting the relationship in such a beautiful medium. You will thoroughly enjoy the experience and become surprised with how capable your beautiful little bundle of joy is!
If never been taught the importance of a toddler being able to take a breath could be the vital key needed to help the little exploration child survive if in a water body without help. This age is so important to also encourage and develop the correct body position in the water to eventually be able to swim independently. At this stage you will still need to be in the water with the toddler, and encourage the adventure and play while learning in the warm water.
