Baby and toddler swim meet for children between 0 and 4 years of age

Baby swimming is ideally suited for playfully getting toddlers used to the element of water. At the same time, early education in water not only supports the child’s health but also its mental receptiveness. The buoyancy of the water relieves the body so that children can perform movements that they would not yet be able to do on land. Together with an accompanying person, we want to develop and promote a positive attitude towards water in our baby swimming classes.
