Baby swimming

Baby adventure above and below water

Water is a natural habitat for infants, for it reminds them of time spent in the womb; in water of the appropriate temperature, they calm down and float freely. Baby swimming builds on this positive experience, and is in fact a cheerful class with rhyme and song, where infants can do exercises in the water with the help of a parent. For up to 6-7 months, infants retain their diving reflex, and will automatically hold their breath when their face touches water, so during classes they can safely explore the underwater world with the help of the instructor.

Why is baby swimming good?

Stoller Baby Swimming Academy's founder Katalin Stoller personally guarantees that the classes are both fun and taught with expert skill. Regular swimming shown to:

  • improve babies' fitness, as the exercise makes both muscles and circulation work
  • improve resistance against common illnesses
  • helps infants learn age group specific movements faster and improves steadiness
  • improves their intelligence and social skills

It's a great experience for babies, who can enjoy the undivided attention of mom or dad for half an hour, and for parents who can use this opportunity to chat and get to know people.

Perfect location, baby-friendly aqualand

Our baby-friendly aqualand is a great adventure for even the littlest ones. Getting ready is made easy with the changing rooms equipped with useful things like large shower stalls and changing cabins, built-in baby baths and a safe baby corner. If the babies still have some energy left after the swimming class, they can splash around in the kid's adventure pool, and the day can come to a close in the family sauna.
