Aquatic Harmony Baby and Toddler Swim


Swim sessions which are relaxed, gentle and child led. We follow the Birthlight method,
teaching you holds and movements, which will not only encourage your baby to
move freely in the water but also increase both your's and your baby's
confidence. There is no strict regime, instead we progress with your child by
allowing them to lead and only progress when they are physically and
emotionally ready.


Each class is run in a relaxed atmosphere and the main focus is for child and parent bonding.
Whilst teaching water safety and confidence is of paramount importance, we do of course have lots of fun using numerous toys, floats, games and songs.



Our classes involve:

  • Gentle approach: Enhancing bond and attachment between the child and parent.
  • Child led: Promoting freedom in the water at the right time enables confidence to flourish.
  • Repetition: Repetition of activities encourages learning.
  • Baby and child development: Rolling, sitting, standing and walking each offer an opportunity in the water which is characterised by certain reflexes and enhances the development of your child.
  • Focusing on safety: Every child will be taught the importance of safe behaviour around water and in the water.
  • Having fun for both babies, toddlers and parents

A baby's natural reflexes enable them to be underwater safely for short periods of time. This is known as submersion and when practised correctly, offers enjoyment and freedom for the baby and child. We do practice this technique in our classes but we do not focus heavily on submersion like some other swim classes and we will only teach this if you as a parent are comfortable. We believe that a baby or child should only be submerged when they are fully engaged and should not be forced but encouraged in accepting this practice.


Benefits of baby/toddler swim

  • Enhances bonding and relaxation
  • Improves eating and sleeping patterns
  • Awareness of safety around water and the pool environment
  • Exercise for parent and child whilst having fun!
  • Research shows that babies who attend classes regularly are far better developed socially,
    mentally and physically
