7th June 2022 10:00am Listening to Babies in Water:

The seminar focus will be to share water time from a baby’s perspective, ideal for all baby and preschool swimming teachers. Smiles and cries are the obvious signs that babies in classes are enjoying or not enjoying the water, but there are so many subtle cues to be aware of. All babies are different and will respond differently in the water, do you have all the knowledge tools to support your babies and parents?
