The next AquaPlay and MotherCraft talk is on at Wednesday 30th May at 10.15. (We have set this time so you guys from the inner/outer west and south Sydney can still make it easily. We are only 20 minutes from Newtown, Balmain, Kensington & Bondi Junction). If you have a large Mothers Group and you would like us to run one just for you on another day (or if your mums kick off a session we can add to) then drop us a line and we’ll see what we can squeeze in.
BOOK HERE – Wednesday 30th May If this event is full and you would like us to create a new session tell us!
So what’s it all about? Well, it’s a bit of a social really! Bring your bub along to the pool for a swim, (no lessons but a teacher will be on board to help out with questions or tips) then “Hang with Helen” our very own maternity nanny (though some say she’s a baby whisperer…) to ask any questions on baby issues – sleeping, feeding, routines etc. It’s a lovely informal way to air some issues or just listen to the banter from the other mums. Oh, and we’ve included some award winning coffee in the ticket price! (Check out this review to give you an idea). So get the girls together or come on your own for some fun and amazing advice. You don’t have to be a client to come so tell your friends! The venue is at the Artarmon pool with on site parking but we’re letting all our clients know that at this time of the morning it’s only 15 to 25 minutes from the inner west, eastern suburbs and city so don’t let the location put you off. More dates will be released soon so if full, add yourself to the wait list and we’ll look to get another session going asap so leave your details.
When asked “What did you like about the event?” some past mums said:
“Having time to play in the pool first then the nice, informal chat with Helen afterwards. it felt like you could ask anything and get a sensible answer.”
“The Aqua Play was no pressure, just playing and it was very good bonding time with baby. Also liked that all the attendees had young babies. Session with Helen was useful although.”
“Opportunity to play with the little one in a clean, quiet pool with toys in an unstructured way with advice on hand. Great change facilities makes it a lot easier than a public pool. Great coffee and chocolate after in a comfy room where you can comfortably feed or bub can play. Great advice from Helen”
“The opportunity to practice what we’ve learned at baby swim, meeting other mum’s and bubs, Helen was fantastic – great advice!”
“The pooI temperature was lovely for the babies and my baby clearly enjoyed his time in the pool. I particularly liked the session at the end where we could discuss any issues or concerns with the nanny.”
“A great chance to splash about in the pool, and to talk to Adam about water familiarisation.”
There are many swim lesson providers for babies and toddlers all over the city, offering different programs. Many other programs are based on water familiarity and building confidence through song and rhyme. At the Duck and Dive baby swim school we go beyond these basic stages, as we recognise the importance of survival skills and aim to nurture a lifelong love of the water…
