Welcome to Water is a free, no submersion, 5 module infant swimming course, made available to all new parents and their babies.
Welcome to Water was started because we in the swimming industry know how beneficial early years swimming is to the development of children, and the bond it creates with their parents.
We want all children, regardless of their families financial situation, to have access to vital information on infant swimming, which will benefit them now and until they are adults.
We hope to share with you our philosophies on force-free teaching and eradicate trauma in swimming lessons, all over the world.
We provide resources and support to local swim schools who align with Welcome to Water's philosophies, and who conduct lessons in accordance to our policies and procedures. When you swim at a swim school who provides Welcome to Water, you can be sure that the teachers there will not use forceful or traumatic teaching methods.
We educate new parents, swim schools and their teachers, on the benefits of a force-free introduction to swimming for infants.
We help them to understand the concept of "Aquatic Readiness", to use in the preparation of attaining new skills in the water.
Our 5 module program arms parents with vital knowledge on infant swimming, giving them confidence to welcome their water babies - with love!
