We are born with an affinity to water and unless we are regularly exposed to it, can develop a fear of it – the ability to swim is a gift for life.
The concept of babies being able to swim was pioneered in the USSR in the 1960's and later researched in Australia. Infants lack the strength, coordination and motor skills to propel themselves above the water. However we are all born with the natural ability to hold our breath underwater. This is known as the ‘Mammalian Diving Response' and our classes utilise this reflex. Using word association and repetition we teach the children when to breath and basic water safety techniques. As the child develops, the progression to structured surface swimming becomes a smooth transition.
