Congratulations to Aidan, Lourita has chosen him as her Star of the Month for February.
I have such a big smile on my face as I write this blog and I love hearing about every single one of our swimmers.
Here is why Lourita chose Aidan as her Star of the Month:
"Aidan has made amazing progress since he started swimming and every week his confidence grows and grows. Aidan happily takes part in all of the activities and enjoys each lesson. Keep up the good work Aidan, I am so proud of you."
Aidan's Mum was so pleased to hear that he has been chosen.
Whilst in our Kickers class, the children's communication skills come into their own. Language and responding to key words, counting and listening all play a part in this level of the programme. We use two short woggles to help them move around without adult support. Many of the Learning Outcomes for this programme are directly linked to personal survival and this is a key element of the programme, including partaking in our PJ week, three times a year, where the children learn how it feels to be in the water with clothes on. They can stay in our Kickers programme until they are 30 months and this length of time is just what some children need to gain and even regain their confidence as this stage can prove emotionally difficult for some toddlers. Our teachers are specially trained to make sure activities are adapted to each and every child and the focus is on encouragement and empowerment, never forcing and never undermining. For those children who have consistently shown aptitude and confidence in the water, we progress them to our Little Dippers class from as early as 24 months.
