This course has been developed by birthlight tutors to offer parents of special babies and toddlers the opportunity to enjoy being in water together in a relaxed and supportive environment, using water to stimulate their children’s development. Our method complements and extends established methods designed for helping adults with reduced mobility to enjoy greater freedom in water.

Course participants are taught how to help parents to support and assist their babies and toddlers with buoyancy aids according to their conditions and to create a loving and relaxing atmosphere that makes water sessions pleasurable for parents and babies together.

Course Prerequisites

This short course is open to:
- Qualified swimming instructors working with babies and pre-school children.
- People working with special babies (Aqua physiotherapists, nurses, carers).

Applicants who do not hold a Birthlight Baby Swimming Certification are required to complete a bridging module to enable them to gain sufficient background knowledge for the course.

Birthlight teachers can use this course for CPD purposes
