Can Babies Swim?!

This cute video is for parents or future parents!

Not everyday do you see babies learning how to swim and interacting with water for the first time ever!

Baby swimming seems like a new field and I couldn’t be happier to cover it with Jack and Jacklyn from Happy Fish Swim School in Singapore!

They have been watching Nas Daily for hundreds of days, so I’m glad we finally got to connect and make a video about their work! Thank you and keep up the good work!

FAQs

divider

What is the minimum age for infants to take part?

Our programme is suitable for babies from 4 months old onwards. Any babies younger than 4 months old is welcome to register for their slots first.

My child is toilet trained. Why does he have to wear swim diaper?

Children will need to hold their breath and utilises multiple muscles when they swim. They may not be able to control or communicate the need to go washroom in time. Therefore, to minimise inconvenience to everyone, the wearing of swim diapers is mandatory for children below 5 years old.

Can both parents join in the lesson?

Yes of course, we welcome both parents to join in. Your child will definitely feel more comfortable when both their favourite people are present!

Is there any trial class available?

Yes, trial lesson at $42.80 per pax, 3 students in a group. Private trial class available on certain timing at Bukit Timah outlet at SGD53.50 too!

How long is it going to take for my baby to learn to swim?

Every child is unique and therefore it is very difficult to say how long they will take to learn. There may be some that start out slow, but later progress really quickly at the later stages. As a simple guideline, we expect them to start picking up about 4-6 months after they become comfortable with the water.

Do I need to be in the water with my child?

Yes, parents are required to join their babies for swimming lessons. In fact, we welcome both parents to join us. After all, you are your baby’s best teacher! Our instructor will guide you on how to teach your babies to swim. This allows the baby and parents to have fun together. Your babies will also have a sense of security.

At what age should my child learn to swim?

Children can start learning at any age, but the best would be when they are very young. In fact, the younger the better. This is because younger children tend to be like a clean slate, and thus pick up new skills and techniques very fast. In addition, with the combination of swimming techniques and the growth of their bodies, we notice that these same little ones do the same thing as their peers, but better.

Lastly, one of our key concerns is the risk of the child being influenced by the media (e.g. TV or stories) where they develop a fear of water, which is what we would like to avoid.

Is there a make-up lesson if my child is not able to attend the class?

Yes, each lesson term comes with 4 make-up credits.

Make-up credits must be fully utilised within the same term.

Absences must be notified at least 2 days in advance for non-medical reasons or 2 hours before lesson and supported with medical proof for medical reasons. Failing to do so, the lesson will be charged.

Can I group my 12 months old baby with 3 years old toddler together?

As they are in different categories, we recommend to conduct the class separately. We will be using different syllabus for Infant and Toddler Swim Lessons.

What should I do if my baby is cranky during the lesson?

Crying is your baby’s primary way of expressing himself. When you have a cranky baby in the pool, you need to stay positive and try to find out the possible reasons. Deal with it and always put on your best smile. Your emotion will affect your child’s. It is very important that parent should not leave the pool immediately when your child became cranky as they will probably associate crying with leaving the pool.

What is the age range for toddler?

Children aged between 2 to 4 years old would be considered under the Young Toddlers’ category.

What is the duration of each lesson?

Each session last 30 minutes. Don’t forget to prepare your little one’s favourite fluffy towel to keep them warm after the session.

How many students are there in a class?

Each class is limited to 6 babies only.

What do I need to bring for the lessons?

1) Baby swimwear ( No wet-suit required, the pool is heated)
2) Snugly fit swim diaper (reusable and non-adjustable type)
3) Parent tight-fitting swimsuit (No baggy swim shorts or beachwear)
4) Baby’s favourite waterproof toys (if any)
5) Toiletries
6) Towels
7) A clean set of clothing
8) Baby’s food and drinks (Babies tend to be hungry after lessons)

Important Notice:
1) Children 5 years and below will be required to wear snugly fitting swimwear (Reusable and non-adjustable Type).
2) Single-use disposable or adjustable swim diapers aren’t allowed as they are prone to leakage, this is what we at Happy Fish have observed in many cases.
