Olivia is 8 months old and is learning swimming with her mum at Aquatots. You can read the blog post about the Aquatots' choice here.
The Aquatots programme is the most advanced and enjoyable water safety and swim training curriculum available, designed to follow a child's natural physical and psychological development, through baby, toddler and child years. Coming along to Aquatots is a lot of fun and for many families forms the highlight of their week. The children simply love the in water play and the social interaction with children of their own age. Lots of lasting friendships are made through meeting other young families at Aquatots and many social activities planned too.
Louise is delighted to be chosen and already eager to get started. We can't wait to see how Olivia gets on and will be getting lots of reports from Mum & Teacher on her journey with Aquaots plus hopefully some exciting film footage or her time in the water which we will share with everyone.
Olivia has just finished her first term with Aquatots in Level 1 and has really taken to it all wonderfully. That first term is always very exciting when Mum or Dad get to take their baby for that first underwater swim and see just how much they can achieve and develop in the 9 weeks. Already Olivia has learnt some very important life saving skills in the water and her confidence has been a joy to watch. As well as all the important bits Olivia has been learning, she also had her first underwater photos taken. The Teacher takes these in Levels 1, 2 & 5 to give our parents a little memento to record this exciting experience. As you can see, Olivia was the perfect model and Mum looks relaxed underwater too!! Next term, in Level 2, Olivia will be learning many more new and exciting skills, spending a little more time under the water and really building on what she has achieved already plus of course, lots more fun!! We can’t wait to see her back in a few weeks for the Summer Term!!!
'I was so excited when Friday morning came around, this was only the 3rd time Olivia and I would have been in a swimming pool. Once we arrived we where warmly welcomed and the group had a little talk about what exciting things we would expect over the following weeks, Olivia was very relaxed but eager to get in. We totally enjoyed the session and really looking forward to next week.'
