My Name is Cathy Boje. I am a qualified AQUATOTS teacher .
Teaching the most valuable life skill over the last couple of years has been an amazing experience for me. Teaching parents how to teach their babies and toddlers how to be safe around and in the Aquatic environment.
Using the fundamental building blocks and using songs and fun activities we teach babies or toddlers how important it is to be safe around and, in that environment. In the program we constantly refer to babies and toddlers milestones and land skills and apply it to when and how to introduce certain skills.
Coming from an Aquatic background myself, it only gives me the utmost pleasure in teaching and instructing the most and essential and valuable life skill of all.
Hi everyone, my name is Jenny West and have been trained up within this Program to teach this wonderful life skill. The programme is designed to fulfil everyone’s needs and capabilities lending itself into the aquatic environment.
I have been teaching for well over 10 years, and what better place to spend and learn, is in the water with my pupils of various ages and different cultural diversities. Each infant/ toddler is taught with great passion, education and knowledge in allowing your toddler to become safer within the AQUATOT program, I absolutely love my profession in allowing toddlers to feel so comfortable within this environment, that it becomes so natural to them.
Hello , I am Karin McDonald . I endorse the AQUATOTS program as the most natural way to teach a baby and a toddler how to swim. The program takes into consideration a Childs emotional needs, developmental stage and milestones . Each Childs individual rate of learning and style of swimming is respected and acknowledged. Children learn water safety and how to swim through songs and activities and provide bonding time between parent and child. The program is simple and effective and I couldn’t think of any more efficient and effective way for a child to learn how to swim.
