InspireTots® Aqua is designed to create an excellent foundation for the child's future in the water, promoting safe practices and confidence. In addition, the classes are an ideal environment for parents and their children to bond, for children to socialise and for entire families to spend quality time together.

The sooner a child discovers the freedom of buoyancy and underwater swimming, the more relaxed and independent he or she will become.

The most important factor for taking toddlers through to independent swimming is their enjoyment of the water as a different medium that offers different possibilities for exploration and play from the dry land. This can best be achieved through the mutual delight of parents and toddlers in the water.

Whenever toddlers are introduced to the water, we emphasise the importance of their multi-sensory experience linked with emotions. Relaxed holding is developed so that toddlers gain increasing sense of security and freedom in their own time until they are ready to take off away from the parents' arms, preferably without swimming aids but with the use of buoyancy supports such as short foam woggles. As toddlers are rather active in nature, the water games in the class will assist them to build water confidence and at the same time, teach them to remain afloat either through their own bouyancy or the use of bouyancy aids. From the onset, parents are guided to hold their toddlers as little as possible via techniques developed to this effect: safety position, little harbour, toddler surf. We encourage the integration of movement, rhythm, eye contact, speech and song while toddlers are held in water, with parents immersed as much as possible on eye level with their toddlers rather than standing over them in the water.


This course encourages toddlers to take charge while being supported by their parents in a loving and intimate way.  It also encourages parents to let go of fear and find a balance between achievement and loving acceptance, ultimately resulting in effortless swimming. Water is an ideal medium to develop emotional intelligence, which is increasingly regarded as the key for success in the next generation.
