Water Babies: Developed with science, taught with passion
***Advertorial blog for Water Babies***
Here in Doncaster you can take advantage of the award winning baby / toddler and preschool lessons provided by Water Babies. Teaching babies here for over 11 years in various different locations across the town and the wider county.
We’ll teach you to teach your baby to swim. From lesson one, we’ll get your little one used to the sensation of the water, developing their natural instincts and transforming these into core aquatic skills.
By the end of our programme, your little one will be swimming freely using different strokes and be able to keep themselves safe in and around the water.
We work closely with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming and we’ve woven their learn to swim framework through our programme. So you’ll be simply amazed at the progress they’ve made.
And not only will they be able to swim independently and have learnt a skill for life – they will have grown in confidence too.
Skills are taught through song, play and repetition, so there’s never a dull moment when you’re in the pool.
Our teachers will tailor each lesson to your little one’s ability, so it’s only when they’re ready that we’re ready
In their first year with us, your little one will begin a brilliant foundation in swimming.
We use carefully considered swim positions and activities to help your baby gain their confidence in the water from the get-go. We’ll help them kick their legs, while reaching for toys in the pool will encourage them to stretch out to develop their swimming arms.
They’ll start their first steps in aquatic breathing through activities like blowing bubbles (and you’ll get to join in the fun too). Their first underwater swims will gently build on their natural gag reflex, and they’ll soon learn how to control their breath so it becomes a learned action.
We’ll also work on building their physical ability and strengthening their core. Floating is a key part of the first year, as it forms the foundation of learning to swim and helps with water confidence.
And at the heart of everything we do is safety. We’ll teach your baby to hold on to the side of the pool and the basics of how to respond in an emergency situation.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to build water confidence in their little ones.
There’s so much that you can do with your baby, right from birth. Let our teachers pass on their knowledge and expertise through our handy practical videos, which show you key skills you can do together, wherever you are.
Whether you’re learning in the sink, bath or swimming pool, there’s a video for you.
