  • We are considering children’s developmental stage responding according to the evolutionary psychology
  • We are considering the nature and uniqueness of the children, which may be different from a description of evolutionary psychology
  • We are taking into account the personality of the parent

Our policy for achieving goals:

  • We are aware of the child's feeling in the water.
  • We are taking the fear of the children seriously, we do not play with it, rather we slow down the work with them.
  • In case of separation anxiety and children’s defiance, we are working with a parent to help the child overcome this period.

Objectives of exercise courses

We exercise with children from about half a year. As it is too early to focus on a sport, we set our goals as follows:

  • Within the sensitive period for sensory development, to soften and to accurate touch, hearing, balance sense…
  • Develop eye-hand cooperation - soften fine motor skills
  • Soften gross motor skills, child coordination
  • Develop the socialisation of the child in the presence of the mother
  • Strengthen the children’s body
  • Develop the child's passive and active vocabulary
  • We pay attention to intellectual education in the sense of the motto: "The hand is an instrument of the spirit."
  • Perceive the rhythm of speech and movements
  • We teach mothers games and exercises that they can do with the baby at home
  • Spend meaningful and pleasant time with your baby

As for swimming, also for exercising we take into account:

  • The child's developmental stage and respond according to the evolutionary psychology.
