Benefits of baby
& toddler swimming

Swimming with your baby is such a lovely activity to do together. There are loads of benefits.


Building water confidence early gives your child the gift of a lifelong enjoyment of the water with family and friends.  Your bear cub will learn how to behave in and around water which can be a potentially lifesaving skill.


Swimming with your bear cub gives you a chance to give them your undivided attention.  We encourage lots of cuddles and skin to skin contact to enhance your connection. The warm water is relaxing and a wonderful place to smile, laugh and be close with your baby and toddler.


Swimming strengthens your baby's heart and lungs, and helps to build muscles and joints, making your baby stronger. Introducing your baby to swimming at an early age can inspire a love of living a healthy active lifestyle. Your baby will also sleep much better, so that's a winner in our book.


Swimming improves balance and coordination.  Research has proven that babies who swim have much better balance out of the water.


Your bear cub's self-esteem will grow as they progress in the water and achieve different swimming skills.


Swim Cubs classes are a fun family activity promoting happiness.  Your little bear cub will learn how to interact with other babies and toddlers in the class and of course their lovely teacher. This helps build early social skills and independence. ON INSTAGRAM
