The aim of the CPD is to look at recent research on brain development, socialization and memory formation, and the impact that negative experiences can have on the baby/toddler.

By the end of the day, we hope that teachers will feel confident in their own personal submersions and how to transmit this information to the parents.

This CPD aims to increase teacher's confidence in the babies ability to choose whether to submerge and when.

Course includes:

- Looking at child motor, reflex and emotional development, including trauma
- Looking at submersions in view of these findings

- Pool time with visiting babies and adult pairs
- Debrief pool time

The course mostly focuses on babies from 3 months to toddler.
