Baby Swim Lessons

Babies have a natural affinity to the water, because they have spent 9 months developing in a safe, warm, and liquid environment. However, this natural affinity to water will diminish with time and can easily turn into fear. This is why early water introduction has a significant impact on babies’ comfort and skill in the water. The SSI Baby Swim Programs include games, touch, and sensory experiences of the water, which help to strengthen parent-child bonding. Water safety skills including wall skills, back floating, and safe routines around the water, which help babies begin the journey to being safer swimmers
