Baby Swimming Totton – New Classes on Thursdays from 24th Sep!

Baby Swimming Totton – New Classes on Thursdays from 24th Sep!

Hi all!

Just to let you know that we have some new Totton baby swimming classes that begin this Thursday. Swimming classes will run between 4pm and 6pm being run by Emma. The first date for these new classes is 24th September 2015. For the first 4 weeks you’re welcome to come along for a free trial whilst the classes build up numbers. This is in addition to the classes we already run at the Novotel Hotel, Southampton on Tuesday mornings.

The classes are located at Forest Park School, Totton great for those in Southampton, and for those based in the beautiful New Forest.  This is undeniably a fantastic swimming pool for preschoolers, it’s warm and a deck level entry pool so older children can walk in by themselves particularly with nervous swimmers. If you’re interested let us know. We can only take children from 6 months old in this pool due to council regulations.

A little bit about our classes: our baby swimming classes are split into three levels, tailored to your babies developmental stage.  We encourage babies to attend from birth, however we welcome all abilities and welcome you to join at any time. We love to work with parents on improving your child’s water confidence so if in doubt give us a call and we can talk through everything we do.

Swimming comes naturally to babies, they are born with special reflexes one of which closes their epiglottis to stop water entering the lungs. This reflex is there with raindrops falling on the face and will show itself by baby taking what looks like a small gasp inwards. At Baby Paddlers we use cues for word association so they understand when they are going underwater. All this works progressively towards breath control as they move through to the toddler and preschool years.

Underwater swimming is only a small part of what we do, our main aim is to develop water confidence using toys, songs and lots of fun.

Our Totton baby and toddler swimming classes have a maximum of 8 and our preschool classes a maximum of 6, this ensures that your child is in a fun group environment but has the opportunity for one on one time with the teacher.

Look forward to hearing from you, email us on or call me on 01962 680236.
