Swimmable for babies

Lessons for babies, 3 months & older

Getting your baby in the water before they are 12 months old will ensure they are more confident and natural in the water when they are older.

And from a safety perspective, children who learn to swim from a young age lower their risk of getting into danger when they are in or near water.

Your baby will need to be accompanied in the water during swimming lessons – ideally by you.

Have you heard about
Aqua Sensory?

Aqua Sensory is a unique approach to teaching children how to swim. The focus and emphasis is more child-led, and children learn by exploring all of their senses, which integrates
and enhances the development and learning process.

Jo Wilson, the founder of Aqua Sensory in the UK, explains that this method
takes land therapies and introduces them in the pool.

Swimmable now offers Aqua Sensory swimming lessons to babies and children of all ages.
This approach is beneficial to anyone who would like a different experience for their child when teaching them to swim. It is especially beneficial for children with sensory-specific or other challenges.
Swimmable is the first Aqua Sensory accredited swim school in South Africa. Leanne Harrison, one of our senior swimming instructors, qualified earlier this year in the UK as the first South African Aqua Sensory Teacher-Trainer.
