My little boy has been learning to swim with Nemo Swimming since he was five months old. He absolutely loves his swimming lessons and has so much fun! His confidence in the water is amazing, and this is all down to the fun we have together at Nemo Swimming. We take some of the lesson home and use the songs and games in the bath to further build his love of water the water.

Benefits of baby swimming lessons

Baby swimming lessons offer a hugely valuable developmental activity for your baby. As well as developing water confidence and an understanding of water safety, taking your baby swimming from a young age offers the following benefits:

  • With loads of skin-to-skin contact, baby swimming lessons are the perfect opportunity for parent-baby bonding
  • Research has shown that babies who are introduced to swimming early are more alert, and have better eating and sleeping habits.
  • Swimming also helps to develop your baby’s coordination, balance, and movement patterns.
  • Providing a complete physical work-out, swimming helps to strengthen your baby’s heart and lungs
  • On top of this, it stimulates all five of your child’s senses – sound, touch, taste, sight, and smell – which is FIN-tastic for their brain development

Of course, the benefits don’t stop there… baby swimming lessons offer several benefits to us grown-ups, too. As well as giving you the opportunity to meet and socialise with other new parents, baby swimming classes are an ideal form of gentle exercise after childbirth, and are perfect for releasing positive endorphins, promoting increased self-esteem, and boosting mood levels.
