Swimming for babies and families
Time for the whole family to play and be active in a clean and warm (+32 °C) water environment on the child’s terms. The goal is to make the child a friend of the water, support the child's growth and development at the child's pace and to develop the interaction between parents and the child. In baby swimming, the child does not learn to swim independently, but under the supervision and assistance of parents to play and move around in the water in a variety of ways and to learn various water safety skills. The babies also work on developing other skills such as balancing, grabbing and social interaction. Cetus has been awarded the Baby and Family Swimming Safety Certificate by the Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Federation.
One lesson lasts 30 minutes. Baby Swim and Family Swim courses cost 19,50 €/lesson or 23,50 €/lesson if more than one child participates. The invoice will be sent monthly during the season by e-mail.
Please note by registering for Baby or Family Swim courses you will commit to the entire swimming season. To terminate a course in the middle of the season, notify Cetus by e-mail vauvauinti[at]cetus.fi no later than four weeks prior to the date of termination. The notice period begins on the day of notification.
