What is family swim school about?

 
  • Family swim school is aimed for 2.5-8 year olds and their parents
  • The basic thought is to offer children the chance to develop their swimming ability with the guidance of their parents
  • Family swim school is not a traditional swimming school, but a child-oriented activity that supports the child’s developement.
  • What does this mean in practice?
  • The things your child practices at home is moved into pool environment.
  • Is your child interested in throwing a ball at the moment? Or perhaps is he/she interested in hopping.
  • Instructors enable these activities that are currently important for your child, but in the pool.
  • They give you tips that help you to be the best you can be for the child, from the child’s view.
  • So basically every child has their “personal instructor” (a.k.a their parents) in the pool with them.
  • While swimming think about what your child enjoys at that current moment.
  • Games are played together with others in the beginning and end. Otherwise we aim to let the child decide the pace on which you progress.
  • Instructors go around giving tips that are needed.
  • Every lesson has a theme, like a red piece of thread which to follow. Can your child practice and listen actively for a minute, or perhaps for up to 8 minutes at every lesson, it depends heavily on the child’s phase of development and his/her daily activity level.
  • Completing swimming badges is also possible.
  While swimming we keep in mind “What our child enjoys the most at the moment” Pikku Delfiini’s waves carry towards a good swimming ability!
