ABC Baby Classes

ABC Baby Classes

The programme

Our courses have been developed using the Birthlight approach and are structured to consolidate on a baby’s natural swimming reflexes and gradually help them to become conscious voluntary movements. Courses are arranged in progressive blocks to accommodate the various age, experience and developmental milestones of the group.

swimmingOur lessons are conducted in a playful, stress free environment where each child is respected as an individual and encouraged to develop at their own pace. Sessions are interactive with adult, baby and the instructor all in the pool together.

Within each lesson all activities have a specific teaching aim which we make fun through a series of songs, rhymes, interactive games, individual and group activities appealing to a child’s natural sense of curiosity and play.
Each session will offer an element of continuity and repetition encouraging babies to master key techniques and develop confidence.

We will encourage you to float and swim with your baby (you do not have to be able to swim yourself) and develop your own confidence in holding and moving your baby through the water. Our courses do include submersion techniques. Our structured underwater swimming activities are designed to be fun, relaxed and are only introduced when you and your baby are ready.
