About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • Parents
  • Infant instructors
  • Swimming instructors
  • Swim School owners and coordinators
  • Those interested in teaching babies how to swim

What you’ll learn: 

  • Why do we need to start swimming lessons at such an early age
  • What is the best age for them to start swimming lessons
  • How is this supposed to work if babies can’t understand instructions
  • Does this help babies in their swimming education or it is just a fun time in the water


  • No prior knowledge is required to take this course

Well, first of all, water is a wonderful environment for babies as they were created in very similar conditions. Babies also have limited movements on land due to a weak and developing muscular system; however, they can move freely in the water, which will speed their growing process. 

It is also very important to understand that play is the best way for babies to learn; they love wandering around and discovering their surroundings with tasting, touching and playing. It is true that they don’t understand most of the verbal instructions. However, they respond to conditioning and in these classes, we educate parents about how to make this happen. 

After many years of experience, we can now agree that children who start their swimming education with babies and toddlers swimming backgrounds perform much better than those who are new to swimming. Swimmers with this background tend to have magnificent water familiarisation, buoyancy, and mobility skills. This means they enjoy swimming lessons much more than others with no background.
