Octotots is an established baby, toddler and academy swim, with over 7 years experience. Our highly trained teachers work using the Swim Teacher Associations (STA) framework for teaching swimming as a life-saving skill.
All our teachers are fully trained and qualified via the Swim Teachers Association. As a minimum, all teachers have a qualification in Baby and Pre-school teaching but, in reality, all currently have additional qualifications including a pool rescue qualification, UKCC Level 1 & 2, the STA Award (which focuses on teaching beginners how to swim) and most teachers have a certificate in swim teaching for teaching improvers and competitive swimming. Some of our teachers hold a diploma in baby and pre-school aquatics (and those who don’t are working towards this). This qualification looks at baby development in early years and the impact and implications for swim teaching alongside this.
Our baby classes are suitable from birth until around 18 months. The focus of our baby classes is to promote an enjoyment of water for babies, somewhere they feel safe and secure. These classes also offer a great bonding opportunity for parents and baby.
Our toddler classes are suitable from around 18 months until 4 years. These classes work towards independent swimming and life-saving skills. We use lots of toys, games and songs to ensure your child has great fun on their swimming journey. You do not have to have completed the baby swim programme to attend the toddler classes.
Our academy classes are aimed at those who have mastered the basic swimming techniques and are moving on to stroke development and more independence.
We also have Octokidz classes which are our transition classes for those who have completed the Octotots programme are moving to swimming without a carer in the water with them. The classes not only take swim skills to the next level but work on the other skills necessary for joining mainstream swim lessons, for example, listening skills, patience and following instruction.
