Baby Swimming Classes: Fun for Chicago Babies & Parents!

As a new parent, you might already know how magical baby swimming classes can be for infants. At British Swim School Downtown Chicago, our baby swimming classes offer babies as young as three months old a chance to experience the water for their very first time. After getting over any initial fears, children fall in love with floating, playing, and splashing about in the pool. Not to mention, water survival techniques that each infant can accomplish in a real life scenario.

What you might not realize about our parent-assisted baby swimming classes, called Tadpole & Swimboree levels, is how big of an impact they make on Chicago parents. Seeing your baby discover the water for his or her very first time is an amazing experience, one that many parents cherish for the rest of their life. Even more importantly, you’ll learn crucial information about keeping your child safe in and around water, vital info for parents of infants.  The survival lessons are taught in a structured class environment giving each family the ability to continue that classes techniques when on vacation, at the lake or even at a beach.

Why Chicago’s Babies Love Our Swimming Classes

It’s no surprise that Chicago’s youngest swimmers love our baby swimming classes. While the very first time in the pool can be a scary experience for some, others adapt almost instantly. Soon, babies discover the comfort of floating in water, the amazement of how water moves, and the joy of splashing about in the pool. With our fun and gentle methods, the classes contain lots of songs and games making the aquatics educational process fun for everyone in the pool.

For babies who are scared of the water at first, baby swimming classes can be especially helpful. Our Tadpole program is specifically designed to give Chicago-area infants a chance to get used to water early, helping them develop survival instincts through muscle memory and familiarity they need to excel in swimming lessons as a toddler and young child.  Oh, and did we mention it’s fun for them!
