Like being back in the tummy

“Who has never been a child, will never be an adult.”

Charlie Chaplin

Swimming in a bathtub full of warm water in dim light is a very pleasant return for the baby to the surrounding they used to be in in their mother's tummy. This environment is familiar to them and they feel like in their natural habitat.

The guarantee of PaedDr. Jana Hochová

We swim in a special large and deep bathtub with drinking water which has 35 to 37 °C with no other additives. The time spent in the bathtub is adjusted to the age of the baby, their abilities and current mood. We follow a given methodology guaranteed by PaedDr. Jana Hochová. You will see the big progress of your child under the professional guidance.

More than swimming

Our professional instructors teach parents how to handle and hold the baby correctly. Besides the swimming, the parents receive useful information about psychomotoric development, nutrition, massage and healthy physical activities for their baby on dry land.

What to take with you?

  • 2 muslin blankets, large towel, spare diaper, disposable changing mat
  • t-shirt and slippers for parents
  • If you don’t breastfeed, take your baby formula with you as children are ofter hungry after the lesson

Dry your baby well after every swimming, pay extra attention to ears. Special tissues for drying ears can be found on our changing table. Give yourself at least 30 minutes before you leave our centre as the baby needs to dry properly and adjust to the temperature changes.

For the youngest ones

Swimming in the bathtub is suitable for an infant from 6 weeks to 6 months old. The lesson lasts 45 minutes and it is individual, in other words, there is only one baby with their parents at a time.

Our tip

With the bathtub swimming you not only learn baby handling and enjoy time in water with your baby but you will help your child naturally develop their psychomotorics and you get them ready for swimming in a pool.

"We enjoyed the bathtub swimming lessons very much. Our little one was in her element. We would definitely like to continue with Infant swimming in Anahita."

The questions you have

Can I bring my partner, grandmother or grandfather, or other children to the lesson?

Yes, you can invite anyone for your lesson. There is only one baby in the bathtub but there can be more people to watch it.

How many lessons shall we attend based on your recommendation?

Firstly, try one individual lesson and if you like it you can purchase a pass for 3 or 6 lessons. It also depends on the age of your baby - the sooner you start, the more lessons you can have. The children from 6 months of age swim in a pool.

How often should we have the lessons?

Ideally once a week but it is not our requirement. The learned handling and exercises can be practiced at home as well. For greater improvement of your child we advise you to complete at least 5 lessons.
