Swim Baby Swim is a Baby and Toddler as well as Learn-to-Swim and Stroke Correction swimming school based in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town that uses carefully created and structured programmes that are progressive (yet flexible) and taught in an energetic and fun-filled way. We currently operate in a pools at Mauritius Crescent in Stellenberg.

Using teaching techniques that have been tried-and-tested in the United Kingdom, Swim Baby Swim’s baby and toddler programmes are designed to enhance the bond you have with your child in order to teach them how to enjoy the water and ultimately learn to swim as soon as they are physically able. That is why, as opposed to many other approaches, ours is about gently teaching you to teach your child to swim, in an enthusiastic, energetic and fun-filled environment. Throughout the lessons we will explain what we are doing and more importantly why. This will involve very specific instructions using verbal, visual and tactile stimuli, to reinforce what we are teaching together. As your confidence grows, so will your child’s, reinforcing the bond you share. The Learn-to-Swim and Stroke Correction programmes are aimed at preparing the young swimmers to be confident in the water with the swim with a good technique. From these programmes your child will be able to progress the competitive swimming.

Baby Swimming

Our five stage, 50 week Baby Swimming Program, will take you and your baby on a fantastic journey of discovery above and below the water.

Toddler Swimming

A similar approach is taken with the program being progressive, structured (yet flexible) and presented in a fun-filled and energetic atmosphere. The main focus is to make your toddler a confident and independent swimmer.

Learn to Swim

The Learn to Swim 1-2-1 and mini squad programme creates the perfect foundation to master the fine art of swimming.

Stroke Correction

Our Stroke Correction coaching ensures that your swimmer is efficient in the water, swims each stroke correctly and is ready for more competitive swimming.
