Why Infant Swimming?
Infant Baby Swimming lessons are designed to create an excellent foundation for the child's future in the water, promoting safe practices and confidence. In addition to baby discovering the freedom of buoyancy and underwater swimming, this is also an ideal environment for the family to spend quality time together. Baby Swimming opens babies to a new possibility of exploration and plays that is much different from the dry land.
What makes Inspire Mum & Baby unique compared to a lot of swimming schools is the Birthlight Philosophy. We promote parents' and babies' happy interactions.
Birthlight philosophy's aim is to help both parent and baby relax and enjoy shared movements. We teach from the babies' perspective.
Every newborn baby has the potential to become a water baby, and 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 infants 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 infants in the water.
Infant swimming class reinforces pleasurable sensations and positive emotions through active floating of babies from 2 months onward, with relaxed holds, breath awareness, water body balance, rhythms. The practice is fluid, interactive, never static.
Infant swim lessons are provided in a safe and relaxed environment at our baby swim school.
Relaxed holding is developed so that babies gain an 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. From the onset, parents are guided to hold their babies as little as possible using techniques developed to this effect such as safety position, little harbour, baby surf. We encourage the integration of movement, rhythm, eye contact, speech and song while babies are held in water, with parents immersed as much as possible on eye level with their babies (kneeling or sitting in shallow pools if needed) rather than standing over them in the water.
We provide baby swimming lessons island wide on private basis.
