There are a number of things that you can do even before our first class to prepare your child for Aqua Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers.
Begin by talking to your child about his/her upcoming swim lessons. Pictures and books regarding water fun and swimming are beneficial.
Help your child get used to having water on his/her face. You can do this by dribbling water on his face with a washcloth or sponge. Singing, "It's raining, it's pouring" will add to the fun. Taking your child in the shower with you is also helpful.
Bubble blowing is great preparation for breath work.
Make bath time a time of fun.
Parent's Role During the Class
Children copy parental attitudes. What you say, do, and your facial expressions will influence your child.
Praise your child. Reinforce all skills you want your child to repeat. Reward effort as well as accomplishments.
Be positive. Ignore or minimize reactions such as crying or tantrumming.
Have patience. Children progress at their own rate in swimming readiness, just as in all other areas of development.
Please let me know if you or your child has any medical problems or disabilities.
Food or drink, especially citrus products, should not be consumed at least one hour prior to class.
If your child becomes chilled or tired, take him out of the water and wrap him warmly. You may either observe the class or go inside.
PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE AT ALL TIMES FOR THE SAFETY OF THEIR CHILDREN.
I know that this will be a fun and rewarding experience for all of us. I look forward to seeing you in the water!!!
