Swimming lessons are fun for babies and toddlers!
Thursday mornings are perfect for our little swimmer Baby D to have his swimming lessons! At 16 months, Baby D is able to attend swimming lessons on his own with mummy watching by the side! He enjoys Teacher Yong’s company, and is always laughing and smiling away.
Teacher Yong guides Baby D in his kicking through fun activities and songs. Baby D enjoys kicking towards the colourful balls, and collects them into the noodle. Teacher Yong holds him to feel the motion of swishing and the flow of water. This is to get him more comfortable in the water and simulate the movement of swimming. Baby D is able to put his face in the water and is comfortable with immersion.
Baby D practises going up onto the mat and entering the water safely with some help. He plays with the toys happily and loves practising the back float! It is such a joy to watch him enjoy his swimming lesson!
