  • Baby survival is a special technique for very young children (under 2 year old).
    Your baby is born with a natural instinct to close the airway when submersed under water. Infants are naturally relaxed in water.

    Encourages bonding with parent while teaching first the basic and than more advanced water safety skills. Parent is instructed on how to teach the child in our baby swimming lessons.

    Children who are walking (2-4 years) can learn to:
    *hold their breath in the water
    *swim with their face in the water to the steps, side, or parent
    *roll over onto their back when they need to breathe
    *flip back onto their tummy to continue swimming until reaching their destination, or roll to their back should they need to breathe again
    *perform these skills fully clothed

    The time frame for mastering these skills is typically 10 to 15 lessons (60 minutes).
