HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR BABIES FIRST SWIMMING LESSON

Hello, my name is Adam Knight and teaching children to swim is my passion! I have been an aquatic professional for the last 9 years and run a company called Angel Swim London, teaching babies, toddlers and children to swim just off Kings Road in Chelsea.

In my opinion, swimming is like any physical activity, the earlier you start and the more you practice, the better you become. We teach babies as young as 4 weeks and focus on creating a positive connection with the water from the very beginning using their natural reflexes and adaptations. Here are my five top tips for parents to get the most out of their babies first swim experience:

1. ARRIVE EARLY

To get the most out of your babies first lesson it is essential that you are both in a calm, relaxed and happy frame of mind. Babies are extremely perceptive and can sense your stress which they in turn reflect. Happy parents = happy babies, so please leave enough time to travel and get changed and you will give your baby the best possible chance of a happy and successful first experience in the water.
