There are great benefits for babies swimming at such a young age, which include helping to develop physically, with greater muscle control, hand-eye co-ordination as well as strengthening baby's heart and lungs. Alertness is also improved through word association and responding to commands such as kick, kick kick or hold on. Socially your baby will interact with other babies and join in the fun and games and as they get older sing along to the songs.
Holding your baby in water will help to stimulate the natural movement of their arms and legs and at Baby Swimmers, we teach the parents to take their baby under water from the very beginning.
Baby Swimmers runs classes for babies and toddlers up to 4 years old in York, Pocklington, Harrogate, Leeds and Bradford and follows Starfish, the official water safety programme for babies through the STA. There are 6 awards throughout the series with the aim of concentrating on 1 Starfish award per 10 week block, it should therefore take just over a year to achieve all six and then your babies can move on to a more advanced award programme.
So why not come swimming, be safe and have fun and teach your baby the enjoyment of water.
