Early learn to swim classes for babies and toddlers is very important. Teaching water familiarisation in an aquatic environment for your baby is the 1st step. Gina specialises in teaching babies (from 6wks old) to develop confidence in the water by learning survival and swimming skills for life.
The aquatic environment has the potential to increase:
Gina teaches babies and toddlers to develop swimming skills through a range of water activities, songs and games with lots of fun and excitement!
Gina understands that before a child can swim on their own they need to reach a level of confidence and competency in a range of areas including:
In the ‘Transitional Program’ Gina will assess each child individually on the following:
1. Physical stamina and coordination
2. Their understanding of what is required (language comprehension)
3. And their willingness to achieve.
Within Gina’s swim school, children who start learning to swim as babies transfer very successfully through the Transitional Program at around 2.5 years old. The Transitional Program is the most exciting stage as they are gaining independence.
Gina’s Progressive Swimming Program is aimed at approx 3.5 years to prep-aged children and concentrates on the following:
1. Water Safety
2. Develop strong kicking
3. Develop water mobility
4. Integration of breath control and propulsion.
5. Encouraging mature group dynamics.
6. Progressive swimming skills.
Gina understands that all children learn at different paces. All classes are taught in a nurturing environment and each child’s needs are considered in order to maximise their learning experience.
