The SwimEasy, SwimTots, classes in Glasgow are proving to be very popular with the tots and their mummies and or daddies, who are able to join their wee ones in the lovely warm water.
SwimEasy always makes things easy for you. You can bring two tots together both of different ages at the same time as long as there is a parent to look after each child. Already we have some grannies and granddads that help out on occasions or indeed on a regular basis.
SwimTots classes are designed to bridge the gap between the baby classes and the main learning-to-swim lessons for pre-school 4 year olds. Between the ages of 2 and 3 years, little ones can gain the vital confidence of appreciating the water and negotiate irregular swimming style movements. No forcing under the water is encouraged as this is crude and not progressive. However parents will be encouraged to show their child just how it can be done.
SwimEasy are the only experts who have taken the time to research the abilities of children and how they react and move in the water.
Your child will become more confident in the water and will develop the first skills in order to be able to begin travelling on their own, without aids or assistance.
Your child won’t use flotation aids. Your child should be comfortable with their face being in the water and being gently splashed.
Your child should be able to travel 5 metres unaided on their front and back, using their feet and legs. Children should be happy floating on their front and back.
This is the most difficult stage of the learning process, due to the fact the distances are increasing, while learning how to be more efficient in the water.
Your child will begin to become more efficient with their strokes and gain a better understanding of underwater skills, as well as diving and turns.
Your child should be able to swim one length of basic technique on a fourth stroke, usually butterfly or breaststroke.
Your child will refine their already efficient technique and increase the distances swum in each session. They will also learn how to swim with speed and hone in on more technical skills.
One-to-two or one-to-one can provide a more intensive swimming regime for children whose needs are such that this format of learning is required.
