Travelling with kids (and babies)
In the last 2 years we tried few swimming lessons in London with our almost 5 years old. And we’re pleased that with Swimming Nature Kensington we finally found one of the best. Criteria? Playfulness whilst improving technique, postures in harmony with the body and effortless moves, structured, patient and bespoke approach but having fun; Swimming Nature London has it all.
Why do we think swimming is important ?
For us it’s been for years the adult Zen retreat, diving into the silent magic oceans world, looking for dolphins, snorkelling or swimming. For kids we’ve seen it as an essential life skill, socialising, having fun, keeping active and cool and getting ready to join us in further adventures such as paddle boarding, surfing, snorkelling.
How did we see swimming evolving along our family changes?
As a water lover myself, my kids have been snorkelling with me since their utero days, the first one swimming with wild dolphins in Kangaroo island in Australia whilst the second snorkeled extensively with me the Grenadines and Dalaman Coast. And babymoons with toddler aside, one could enjoy properly water sports when little ones have some swim basics !
So in a nutshell, a babymoon felt never a proper break unless there’s a sea or an ocean abundant in wildlife. No wonder that translated into a 4 years old as excited as me about swimming in Maldives with baby sharks and snorkeling with schools of fish (Youtube video link in here).
Or our two years old fascinated about dipping into Thames, fish, mud and leaves included at Cliveden Reach. And there’s never really a holiday unless there’s swimming !
Why do we think Swimming Nature Kensington is one of the best provider for swimming lessons in London?
Our almost 5 years old embarked on 8 sessions of 2:1 in Kensington last 2 weeks. The teachers we came across – Mario and Genevievre were brilliant.
He listens little in general to instructions but without even making an effort I could see him improving overnight technically. Friends mentioned in the past they were good but we had to see it for ourselves. Our friends’ kids have been going for 2 and respectively 4 years, the kids are doing great and now we figured out why!
The levels, structure and progress are clearly monitored and tracked and one could easily see from excellent baby swimming classes London the transition to skilled seals, crabs, penguins and so on.
