Seahorse classes focus on encouraging independent movement in water in a safe, secure environment for the child who is emerging from a crawling infant to a walking toddler. Activities are designed to enhance and stimulate fine and gross motor development, coordination, perceptual skills, social interaction and aquatic skill development.
Appropriate float aids are used to encourage early independence and movement. Every child is taught at their individual level of readiness and new skills are introduced when children are emotionally, developmentally and aquatically ready.
Submersion and breath control continue to be developed in a very gentle and controlled way.
