Parent Tot Happy Hour Lyrics: Baby Swimming Lessons At Watersafe Swim School

– If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If you’re happy and you know it, splash your hands.

– Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, on the water.

– If you’re happy and you know it, kick your feet. If you’re happy and you know it, kick you’re feet. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If youre happy and you know it kick you’re feet…

– Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, on the water. Lean back on the water, just like a sea otter. Lean back on the water, on the water.

– EVERYONE COME BACK TO THE CASTLE.. EVERYONE PUT YOUR HANDS UP:

– If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. If you’re happy and you know it, then you’ll really want to show it. If you’re happy and you know it, give High Fives. YAY !

Raindrops Keep Falling on Robbie’s Head: Watersafe Swim School

I really think frequent “showers” or “pouring water directly over their head” can help babies develop comfortable swim-breath-control. Robbie started having daily showers with water streaming down his face when he was 5 days old. Listen to the music. Does anyone know what movie (from 1969) this tune is from?

Baby Swimming: SFM Ginny’s Parent-Tot, Part 1, Opening Song

“Circle up everybody. Hold your baby, so they are facing into the circle.”

(if a baby is being shy or resistant about that, the parent can hug (chest to chest), but we suggest having the parent turn around, so that Baby can look over the parent’s shoulder to at least watch the fun that is going on while we all enjoy the OPENING SONG… the one song that should be the same every single Watersafe Swim School Parent-Tot class.

SING…

THE BABIES IN THE POOL

Tune for

“Wheels on the Bus”

The kids in the pool

go splash, splash, splash,

splash, splash, splash,

splash, splash, splash.

The kids in the pool

go splash, splash, splash,

all around the pool.

…. kick, kick, kick

… go up and down

…side to side

…in and out

… a great big kiss.

When new babies are upset about participating in any of these activities, let the parent know that it is no unusual. Two Options:

1: Hug the baby throughout the entire class and simply watch the action. Baby will likely become curious about things and at least turn around to watch. The next time Baby attends the class, he will likely be more cooperative… less threatened, because now he will know what it is all about. Be patient. We don’t mind counting this as a “Canceled Lessons” that can be made up later. Just speak with the office when your class is over.

2. Go over the the Dice Block on the side of the pool, where there is a basket of foam shapes and puzzle pieces that your child can play with. Distract his attention from the class, and simply enjoy conversation about the shapes that can be placed on the block. Teach Baby how to dip the shape in the water, so that it sticks to the block.

– Another fun distraction… find the bath books in the equipment basket and read them with your child.

Smart Fish Method Baby Neck Float Rings – should we or should we not use these?

* When back floating a baby, simply hold the baby’s head allowing the body to float freely and naturally in the water. This can be accomplished with the inflatable Baby Neck Float Ring
* By only supporting the head (by hand or with the ring) to protect
against unexpected submersion, the newborn baby is able to experience “the motion of the ocean” and organically move his limbs and torso more easily than on land.
*. The Neck Float Ring is an acceptable floating device suited for babies until about 4 months, since it mimics the same hold that a parent or teacher uses to support the baby’s head.

Learn Life Lessons From Swimming

As a Swim Instructor, I have been practicing swimming for more than 25 years in my 40 years of life and I loved it right from my childhood. I feel grateful when I remember my first swimming lesson. At that moment, the water and I merged into one, and a life-long relationship was born. Swimming is one of the most famous physical activities to maintain our soul and body as well as it teaches us so much in life.

Swimming teaches us some significant life lessons:

1. Do Hard Work to Succeed: Every swimming lesson teaches us to work hard for success. One has to work hard to learn various aspects of swimming and practice really hard to achieve success in swimming competitions. Similarly, one has to work hard for things one wants in life.

2. Relax & Patience: Swimmers know how to keep body healthy to win any race. You can’t float unless you relax. In childhood, we learn how to wait patiently to take swimming turn and waiting to take turn is surely good manner that improves over the years.

3. Believe In Yourself: Swimming helps in confidence building. It is absolute confidence in your ability that you achieve targets in swimming. You challenge yourself to go faster and try different strokes.

4. Time Management and Self-Discipline: My day-night swimming practice teaches me how to manage time wisely so that I can have good social life and a successful professional life. It is through self discipline and time management that one can achieve the balance.

5. Good Leadership: Swimmers generally have good team-building skills. We meet new friends and learn to work together, to encourage each other, to communicate and to become good team leaders. We support each other in our professional life as well.
