Swim Teacher - Infant & Toddler

 

This course is a nationally recognised course for Swim Teachers looking to gain specialist knowledge in teaching infants and toddlers. 

The Infant & Toddler course will deliver the skills and knowledge required to create activities for the development of infants (over six (6) months of age), toddlers and care givers in an aquatic environment with communication techniques suited for this age range.
