This video is an Advanced Parent Tot class.
Watch as the class starts off with the parents practicing some of the techniques they have already learned in class using the Rainbucket™ and the Barbell™ (or Swim Bar™) to help the children go under the water and kick around in the horizontal swimming position. You will hear Mr. Ed explain the importance of getting the child on the Swim Bar‡ and out of parents arms!
Watch as Mr. Ed takes charge and leads the group in warm up exercises. This helps to prepare the children to take instruction. Tots need to understand that this is fun, but it’s also very important!
You will see the techniques Mr. Ed teaches the parents to have the children swimming to them, then swimming back to the wall and climbing out. It’s clear that by the 5th lesson, these children really love the water!
Learn some new circle songs, as Mr. Ed leads the class in Circle time, singing songs and moving with the children through the water. The children enjoy this fun activity with Mom and Dad.
Watch how Mr. Ed works with the children doing the backfloat, then ends the class with their favorite activity – jumping off the ramp – which is made by using Big Playboards™. The kids LOVE it!
You will also see Mr. Ed’s technique for Patterning the arm motions of swimming, as learn why this is such an important part of the Fast and Fun Swim System.
This video combined with the first class in this series really shows the progress this group has made since they started!
