Shayne Reese Swimming’s INFANT AQUATICS PROGRAM specialises in aquatic beginnings and provides a friendly, caring and happy environment for your child to Learn to Swim and develop their confidence when in and around the water. These classes deliver a wonderful introduction to the joys of aquatics and water familiarisation, by providing a rich mixture of sensory exploration and early developmental opportunities.
Our child centered philosophies used in our Infant Aquatic classes provide an intimate bonding experience through gentle, teacher-led progressive water-based activities and a baby focused experience that share with you the joy parents can have while participating in water activities with their Infants. These classes also educate parents on how the water can be an attribute to their Infants physical, social, emotional aspects and babies’ development.
There are many physical, mental and emotional advantages for children to start swimming lessons at 3 months of age. Research shows that young children who participate in learn to swim classes achieve many developmental milestones before those children who don’t participate in learn to swim classes.
These developmental milestones include:
- Literacy Improvements
- Higher Numeracy performance
- Improved Social Skills
- Increased Health
- Emotional Stability
And of course… The Main reason many Parents have their Children taught Swimming from 3 months of age is to keep them SAFE when in and around Water.
The aim of our INFANT AQUATICS PROGRAM at Shayne Reese Swimming teaches water familiarization and safe water practices through a variety of fun stimulating activities – with plenty of positive encouragement!
We LOVE to Encourage and Care for your child at Swimming!
Toddler classes are introduced to more advanced aquatic skill based activities to develop kicking, paddling, floating and breath control techniques in preparation for future Swimming Development. Shayne Reese Swimming students at this level, learn essential water safety skills – for example, what to do if they fall into water and how to turn on their back and get to safety unaided.
These “LIFE SAVING” skills will assist your child in becoming safe and strong in the water.
