Waterbabies Houston – Clear Lake


Notice: Undefined variable: out in /var/www/wp-content/themes/Emler2018/library/shortcodes.php on line 119

6 months – 35 months

The Waterbabies program feels like total fun, but the classes teach infants real swimming techniques, in a caring, safe and supportive atmosphere.

Waterbabies Orientation: FREE 30 min class

Parents join baby in the water

Parents and babies get into the water and learn that it’s a great place to be. This is where more fun will happen in succeeding lessons. We offer this FREE introduction class usually on a Saturday, but we can work to your schedule and fit in weekdays too – just give us a call or click below to enroll – it’s that simple!

*Note: For your safety, children under the age of three are required to wear two washable, reusable swim pants.

Waterbabies+

Parents join baby in the water

When babies have learned to be submerged under water for 8-10 seconds, and are comfortable with this, it’s time for them to strike out to new adventures. Now baby learns how to move 3 feet forward in the water. Our instructors control this very carefully at this stage so that babies get independence to move, but not with any sense of struggling or anxiety. It stays positive all the way.

The big lesson is that swimming is not about survival or fighting the water, but about getting around and going where you want to in the water.

Advanced Waterbabies

Parent joins baby in the water

Advanced Waterbabies is for the babies who can now kick 3 feet forward in the water. Now we tie this with getting in the water and setting forth. In this advanced session, we teach babies how to jump in the water (remember, they are already fine with being submerged and holding their breath), and then to kick forward 5 feet through the water – and then get out of the pool.

Babies graduating this advanced class will have learned to do all this on their own and the confidence and sense of independence in the water is now theirs for life. This is a very exciting stage of swimming development – parents are allowed to get misty-eyed as they watch their child perform in the water in ways that seem almost impossible for someone so young. Don’t be surprised if a crowd forms to watch!

Super Waterbabies

Parent joins baby in the water for the first 3 weeks

The child becomes truly independent as parents in this level leave the water and sit on the bench to cheerlead and practice water-watching (the skill every adult should have when supervising kids). And this is fun to watch.

This class is for toddlers 2-years of age who can move 5 feet through the water comfortably and independently. Now your toddler learns instruction solely from a teacher. Toddlers now train to increase from 5 to 7 feet of movement through the water, coupled with a safety skill: a sitting jump, then turn and swim.

X-treme Waterbabies

Parent not in the water

The X-treme is for toddlers from 2 years old who have graduated to a comfortable 7 feet of travel in the water. Now toddlers are encouraged to increase the length to 10 feet.

Your two-year-old is now introduced to rollover breathing, and a more advanced safety skill: a standing jump, turn and swim.

*Note: For your safety, children under the age of three are required to wear two washable, reusable swim pants.
