At Swim Dynamics, our courses aim to improve the quality of swim instructors in South Africa and so raise the standards of the industry as a whole.
The Baby Course teaches baby swimming instructors the keys to successfully teach babies and toddlers between 6 months and 3 years of age water awareness and water safety.
The Baby Course is for new teachers who want to learn how to teach babies. The course is also designed for existing baby instructors who want to improve their skills with current techniques. It gives you innovative, fresh ideas and skills to ensure that the way in which you teach is safe while still being creative, holistic and effective. We focus on every aspect of the child, such as mental, physical and emotional well-being, and how these factors work together.
The Baby Course objective is for teachers to be able to teach their class in a calm, relaxed and structured environment using play, song, word association, repetition and encouragement at all times. Beyond equipping you with the teaching techniques for baby/toddler, we give you an Occupational Therapist’s input.
We will guide you through the process of setting up or improving your business. Showing you how passion for babies/toddlers and good business sense can be combined to run a highly successful, rewarding Swim School.
On attendance of the course you will be able to watch qualified instructors doing classes, putting to use the information taught on the course. Candidates will also have an opportunity to practice each step in the water with the course instructors.
We have combined our wealth of experience to assist us in putting together a course that is forward-thinking and different from any other baby swimming course currently available in South Africa. Theoretical and practical examinations are held at the end of the course, with a certificate of achievement being awarded on completion.
