Summer of Fun is here!
After the challenging times we have all recently endured, this year more than ever we are so excited to be looking forward to getting up and out and enjoying a wealth of fantastic children’s activities!
Swimming from birth is fantastic for your baby in so many different ways!
Besides the obvious safety benefits, baby swimming lessons are one of the best things you can do to bond with your baby. As well as being excellent for their development: they also help little ones develop learning skills, boosts their confidence, improves their coordination and enhances their mental wellbeing.
The NHS advises that you can take your baby swimming at any time before and after their immunisations – so it’s never too soon to get them in the pool, as long as the water’s warm enough (above 30⁰C for a baby older than 12 weeks or heavier than 12 lbs, and above 32⁰C if they’re younger or smaller).
It teaches them water safety. Drowning is still the third-highest cause of accidental death among children under 5 in the UK, so learning to get to the side, hold on, get out and/or swim could save their life one day.
Swimming is also amazing for their mental, physical and emotional development too, providing so many early years development benefits.

1, Take a look at some of our free to access learning videos to help give you some basic skills
2, Make sure you have the right kit. From swim nappies to beachwear you can find tried and tested products in our webshop.
Take a look at this fantastic selection of events and activities available this Summer to help keep children healthy, happy and active!
