Babies Levels

Preparing for the first baby swimming lesson

The first few months of water exposure are in the bath at home. Children are not born with fear, it is a learned emotion. Children pick up from their parents/caregivers so at this time we need to be confident, relaxed and with no distractions (turn off the phone, don't answer the door, have all equipment ready - clothes, towels, toys). Check that the water is at a suitable temperature - it should be at about 32 ℃, you can test with your elbow. Ensure the temperature of the room is warm and draft free when you start bathing.

Never leave the child or baby swimming unattended or in the care of a sibling, children can drown quickly and silently.

At Fulton Swim School, we offer classes that are specifically designed to teach babies and toddlers to swim.

During baby swimming lessons, your baby will learn water safety skills such as how to float, swim, and breathe in the water. These skills are essential for keeping your baby safe in and around water. They'll also learn to love and respect the water, which will help to instil a lifelong passion for swimming and other water activities.
