Acquababy (3 – 36 months old)

Creating a first approach to the water world since the first months of a child’s life offers important benefits for both the newborn and the parent. An experience that favors the development of the child’s sensory and lung capacities and strengthens the bond with the parent. The activity is aimed at babies from 3 to 36 months who, followed by an instructor and the participation of mum or dad, gradually acclimatise to the water through play, music, imagination and the execution of innate movement patterns.

Aquaticity (3 - 5 years old)

Through play-sport proposals, the child acquires and improves the basic swimming techniques necessary to be able to face the subsequent courses: autonomy in deep water, underwater breathing, flotation, prone and supine sliding. The goal is to overcome water fear, increasing confidence in one’s abilities and with the aquatic environment.
