Baby Swimmers

image010Come Swimming, Be Safe, Have Fun!

Sing and play through our structured awards programme and see your baby progress to a confident little swimmer. From 6 weeks old to 12 years old.

Babies can start at Baby Swimmers as soon as you and baby are ready and happy to do so and through fun and games we progressively develop your babies  natural reflexes to encourage voluntary swimming movements in the water which will build a foundation for your baby to swim unaided.

Baby Swimmers benefits both parents and babies as whilst you are interacting and bonding in the water together, you are also benefiting from learning water safety and increased water confidence. It is also physically and mentally beneficial for your baby and enjoyable for you both.

Research has shown that early swimming can benefit your baby by helping to develop water confidence, strength, co-ordination & alertness, whilst also learning water safety and having fun.

We follow the Starfish Awards through the STA and once children are aged over 2 they progress on to the Stanley Awards.  Once your child reaches 5,  they progress onto Swimmers Academy, where we develop swimming techniques and build stamina, classes here are for beginners as well as children that have been through the Baby Swimmers courses.

Sing and Sign

Help your baby communicate before speech with our award winning music programme!
Babies typically use all kinds of gestures as a natural part of learning to talk. Encouraging them with extra signs such as ‘milk’, ‘more’, ‘ change nappy’ or ‘tired’ helps babies communicate more effectively and allows parents to understand their needs, thoughts and ideas.

Sing and Sign classes combine action songs, props, pictures and toys in musical activities designed to stimulate speech and language development. It’s natural, it’s easy and it’s also great fun! Our small classes and weekly themes give you the skills and confidence to sign with your baby, as well as providing some lovely together time, and songs and rhymes that you will still be singing in years to come!

Swimming with Linzi

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.

I offer baby, toddler and Pre-school lessons, 4 weeks – 4 years of age at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. It is a small pool and warm at 31 degrees, perfect for little ones!
I also run classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for children 2 -10 years at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, from 3.30-6.30 pm.
When children are confident enough, they can go in by themselves without their primary caregiver. This is a natural progression and one where there’s no age limit. The important thing here is, it’s when the child is ready.
Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class. With the whole pool to ourselves, children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly. There is only 1 class running at a time so little distraction from other swimmers.
With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, RLSS lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
