SwimTots (with adult)
SwimTots is SwimEasy's programme designed for young children accompanied by an adult. Classes are specially designed to bridge the gap between the baby stages of water learning and the pre-school stages of swimming lessons.
At SwimTots you will experience new and different ways of learning about swimming and enjoyment in the water. Instead of the traditional methods you may have seen before, you and your child will participate through a structured water skills development procedure, using various types of water based equipment.
Aquatic learning is the best way to involve parents and their children together in an activity where both can participate on an almost equal footing. Very few other activities exist where a toddler or infant can negotiate tasks along side an adult and, in some cases, perform certain skills more efficiently. From new born babies to the elderly, the entire family can experience the feel of moving in the water together. With expert help from our trained teachers, we will guide you through the various water circuits, helping you and your child to discover how a natural feel for the water can be developed.
SwimTots will encourage young children to negotiate various physical tasks and along the way, will encourage them to be happy both in, and under the water. Parents are asked to wear t-shirts as this assists the toddlers/infants to learn the techniques of turning, grabbing, gripping and climbing. This technique is particularly popular in the teaching of babies and young children in Australia, the world's leading swimming nation. At SwimTots, we have adapted this for use in our own pools as it is a proven method of excellence in developing water skills.
Learning the new skills that we teach can often take some time. It is important to recognise that we teach many relatively simple water skills first, before moving on to the much more complex actual swimming skills later. The actual swimming strokes are rarely seen in youngsters before the advanced stages of swimming lessons when the child has developed significantly greater physical and mental maturity.
However, starting to learn water skills early is crucial with body position and limb coordination both being vital elements of the learning process required for swimming. This is where SwimTots comes in to its own. We begin the process of working toward the fulfilment of the potential that is inherent in every child. If they are young enough at the outset and continue to practice what they are taught, then it is astonishing to see just how much progress children can make at an early age.
