Parent & Babies

Mermaid Swim Academy’s Parent & Baby swimming classes are designed for both Parent & Baby to become relaxed in and around water from a young age. These classes assist parents in teaching their children how to swim, whilst learning invaluable tips and exploring. The Icebergs provides a happy, healthy and supportive environment for Babies to enjoy the water!

Classes designed for babies between 6 – 24mths. Babies swimming lessons will cover:

  • Teaching aquatic awareness for both Parent & Baby
  • The classes assist parents in teaching their own child to explore and become confident and comfortable in the water.
  • Blowing bubbles, kicking, paddling through the water, jumping, floating and submerging. These skills begin to form the fundamentals of swimming
  • Activities such as playing & singing which assist both parent & baby in learning to enjoy their time in the water
  • P&B classes consist of 6 participants

“My 7 month old daughter had her first swimming lesson this morning. The whole experience has been so great with ‘mermaids swim academy’ . From booking when I was called to work out the best time for her lesson to today. The lesson was so one on one and she loved it (even though there were a few tears after submersion). I felt like she (and I) was so looked after and we can’t wait until next week!!!”

Parent & Toddlers

Our Parent & Toddlers (P&T) swimming classes prepare toddlers for the next level of Beginner Learn to Swim (BLTS). These classes are different from Parent & Babies in that they are less about assisting parents and more about getting your toddler comfortable swimming with their teacher & without you. For many children, leaving Mum/Dad is a pretty daunting business and with this course we aim to make it that bit easier but with Parent at close vicinity just in case!

Classes designed for older babies (18 – 32mths). Toddler swimming lessons will apply the principles above in addition to:

  • Teaching aquatic awareness for Toddler
  • Water familiarisation (progression on from Parent & Babies)
  • Greater interaction with the teacher so as they begin to rely less on parents for guidance
  • Once child is comfortable, the interactions in the water become more focused towards specific swimming skills
  • The classes are designed to introduce more advanced stages of learn to swim
  • Blowing bubbles, kicking, paddling, jumping, floating and submerging – These skills begin to form the fundamentals of swimming and water safety for toddlers
  • Games and songs to assist toddlers in learning to enjoy their time in the water
  • P&T classes consist of 4 participants

If your child is 18 months plus and this is their first swimming lesson, they may suit our parent and baby class. Please contact us for more information.
