Baby Swim Teacher

Baby Swim teaches you to be a guide helping parents work on swim skills with their children. Due to the very nature of the title, you will be learning how to handle babies in the water. Attendance in this program is separate from the other SSI Swim Teacher Programs.

What Will You Learn?

When dealing with children in the water, additional constraints and techniques are required. The Baby & Me certification is designed to help teachers deal with our youngest swimmers between 6 months and 2 years old. Education on this course is also geared towards the parents to help them understand the issues being faced. ​Parent or guardian supervision is required when teaching these courses.

This program provides candidates with the knowledge and training necessary to conduct the Baby and Me and Aquababy swim programs.
