Baby SwimBaby Swim

Babies are welcome from newborn, as soon as mum feels ready to come into the pool after the birth. The pool is lovely and warm, so a wetsuit for baby is not needed.  

Baby needs to wear a DOUBLE LAYER, a swim nappy with another layer over the top.

Parents do NOT need to be able to swim to join in with a class.  We are there to help you and teach you how to hold your baby safely in the water.

** We offer 45 minute lessons, so there is no rush and lots of time to enjoy bonding with your baby. **

The classes are designed to encourage and promote

  • Water confidence—carefully designed lessons that are structured to progress each child. As skills are taught and trust between parent, child and the water grows, so does the confidence of both the parent and the child.

  • Safety skills—we teach a safe and healthy respect for the water by introducing safety skills early on. Jumping in, holding on, waiting for permission to enter the pool.....all these are taught and more!

  • Bonding—through enjoying movement, songs and rhymes together, eye contact, praise and love, and LOADS of fun . . . along with plenty of cuddles!

  • Exercise—for both parent and child as you learn how to swim with your baby, both on your front and your back. The baby learns from the rhythm of the parents swim. (Any nervous parents will be given extra help)[08-03-13] IMG_9849.jpg

    In safe, comfortable, warm and clean surroundings, we encourage parents and children to work through any fears, build confidence, learn safety skills, discover balance, buoyancy and breath control.  All Smart Swim School staff, who are parent themselves, believe that the greatest success comes through a fun, loving, relaxed approach tailored specifically to the individual needs of all class members.
