Water Wobble Tips!
If you are looking for some more information about the Water Wobbles, blogger 'The Dadventurer' has written a very informative piece about his tips for getting through the wobbles. You can read more here.
Some of our top tips on coming through the Water Wobbles include:
By arriving early to your class, your little one can watch the other babies swimming and having fun in the class before theirs.
Bring your little one to a pool outside the classes and when you are in the pool, focus on the skills that your little one enjoys doing.
Persistence - it is very important to attend as many classes as you can even though you will be tempted to give up. Our teachers are used to little ones going through the Water Wobbles and will support you every step of the way until your little one comes through this phase.
If you would like a bit more information about what the Water Wobbles are and how to get through them, we have plenty of information available in our office. We also have teachers on hand to talk you through this developmental stage. If you would like more information please do give us a call on 018249987 or send us an email at email@example.com.
