Les Bébés Amphibies International - Aquatic Safety & Swimming Skills
Jean Fouace Method from Switzerland, founded in 1967
Welcome to Les Bébés Amphibies Int. Aquatic Safety & Swimming Skills
Our main goal is your child’s safety in and around water! First we teach them Jean Fouace Aquatic Safety Skills, which were developed in Switzerland and officially founded in 1967. These skills were designed and perfected to enable fully dressed babies and children to float for upto 20 minutes, giving them that extra time for help to arrive.
We believe that every child should be able to swim without any buoyancy aid for a minimum of 25 metres by the age of 3 and most definitely be a confident swimmer before they start school. The current national curriculum in the United Kingdom is 25 meters at 11 Years! We at Les Bébés Amphibies International believe this is too late. Once your child has mastered the Aquatic Safety Skills we move on to various swimming techniques.
Please note: Due to the fact that our children work very hard in their lessons maximum lesson time in the pool for children under 4 years of age is maximum 20 minutes there will always be some 1 to 1 time with an instructor.
Babies from 0 to 16 months with max 6 per class (Babies under 12 months are slowly built up to 20 minutes maximum. The instructor may stop your lesson at anytime if they think your baby is tired or cold as the health and safety of your child is our prime concern.
Children from 16 months to 8 years will always have a maximum of 4 per teacher/class until they can swim the width of the pool on front and back without help.
Our swim alone and classes and our advanced classes have up to 6 max per class.
We are vary passionate about what we do; we don’t just teach a healthy sport, we teach your children vital safety skills that may save their lives.
