We play games and sing songs which are skill related for water confidence and safety as well as being rewarding and fun for both of you.
Every baby is individual and will learn and achieve their own goals in their own time, just as they do with crawling or walking. It is so important to be patient and not rush your baby. By allowing your baby to learn at their own pace, you will see a happy and water confident child.
Each term as you gently progress through your Starfish Awards you will be doing similar activities building on from your previous term in small steps. We try and incorporate the same nursery rhymes throughout all awards so babies are familiar with them and the activity associated with it. It is not really until you look back over the year that you realise just how far your babies have come.
Starfish classes are at 3 levels Beginners, which is SF1 and SF2, Intermediate with Starfish 3 and 4 and Advanced with Starfish 5 and 6. Most classes have a mix of Starfish levels in them and there should not be any concern if you are in a class with other starfish levels, whether they are lower or higher as each baby is taught individually and to their own ability in class. This should not effect your baby's progress or hinder what your baby can achieve.
Remember the key to a water confident baby is lots of repetition and having fun, so relax and enjoy your classes and with time and patience see your babies develop into little swimmers.
The water temperature is kept warm and is at least 30°C to enhance you and your baby's water experience, however please note the pool temperature at some venues is 29°C, a Warm in One or Baby Snug Wetsuit must therefore be used for these classes. We would recommend one of our hydro pools for babies under 6 months old.
Once your baby has completed one term, you will have the opportunity to have your baby photographed swimming underwater, and what a delightful keepsake! The cost for this is presently £35 with an additional cost for the photos.
Each session lasts either 25 or 30 minutes and can be booked termly and paid in advance at a cost of £10.00 per class. If after attending your first term, you are unable to commit to a full term, you can pay our ad hoc rate of £12 per class.
You can pay our ad hoc rate of £12 per class however these classes must be consecutive and specified when rebooking.

Sibling discounts

There is a sibling discount of 5% per child when you have 2 children attending our classes. There will be a 10% discount per child for your 3rd and 4th child. Please note payments are made in advance, per term. If you are unable to attend for any reason, your payment is non refundable, non transferable and cannot be carried over to a new term. We run an automatic rebooking system, so you do not have to worry about when you should rebook.
