From 12 months to preschool
What We Do Best at Toddler Swimming
Our programme for toddlers is aimed at teaching your child water confidence, key lifesaving skills, a life long love of the water and building the first steps towards swimming unaided.
In our sessions your child will benefit from increasing strength, coordination and exercises focused in progression and enjoyment at every lesson.
We use songs and games to ensure your little one loves the time you spend together in the pool. We put emphasis on having lots of fun.
Our progressive toddler lessons are carefully designed to accommodate all types of behaviours and fears associated with water. We help those who are less confident to enjoy the pleasures of being in the water and we will also help the most confident ones, important safety skills. Toddlers and preschoolers learn how to help themselves if ever come into difficulty in the water.
Our lessons are fun and enjoyable to everyone.
Pre-school children are encouraged to complete 3 levels under ‘My Swimming Journey’ from the Baby Sharks journal. Level 2 Turtle, Level 3 Ray Fish and Level 4 Sharks. These are an excellent and cute keepsake to treasure.
Additionally, your teacher can obtain Awards and Badges from Swim England, once your child has passed the criteria at the end of every 10 weeks term. These are called Discovery Ducklings, Ducklings Awards and I Can Awards, and can be purchased from your teacher.
Your teacher will be fully qualified in SE Level 2 Swimming Teaching, Baby and Preschool Award in Aquatic Teaching, with a National Rescue Award, DBS checked and Certified in Safeguarding Children.
Baby Sharks swimming lessons, with an adult per toddler/preschooler on a maximum of 12 pairs have a duration of ’30 minutes each in a warm swimming pool to 30-31°C. This encourages children to interact with and learn from others as they participate in the swimming, songs and contrasting activities.
Every Baby Sharks teacher is highly qualified in teaching swimming, SE Level 2, with a STA Baby and Preschool qualification, a Lifeguard Qualification, Pediatric First Aid, Certified in Safeguarding Children and current DBS checked.
We simply know and love our job and programme. We are proud of being one of the best swim schools in your area.
“Swimming is one of the best rewarding sports and activities in life. No doubt it will help your baby to learn many other positive skills, building a strong foundation in their cognitive and learning processes”
