We are a family run swimming school set-up to offer quality swimming classes for babies all the way up to adults in the City. The principle teacher is Peter Abu-Jabir, an experienced Birthlight trained Infant Aquatics and AquaYoga Teacher as well as an ASA Licensed Swimming Teacher and Synchro Coach.
Birthlight Infant Aquatics classes are offered at the Thistle City Barbican Hotel, Clerkenwell for babies through to pre-schoolers on weekday mornings. Classes are centered around teaching parents aquatic skills and passing these onto their children. In young babies developmental stages are taken into account and practices are focused on maximising a baby’s ability to move in the water as well as using water as a tool to promote physical development. Through time further aquatic skills are covered and in older children more stroke relevant practices are taught and independent swimming is prioritised.
Nanuk ‘Foundation’ classes are offered on Saturday mornings at the City of London School for Girls (CLSG). These are intended for 3 – 5 year olds and work on promoting the child’s independence in the water.
ASA Learn to Swim classes are held at CLSG on Thursday evenings for older children. We work through the ASA National Plan for Teaching Swimming stages 1 – 7, Competitive Swimming stages 8 – 10 and RLSS Rookie Lifeguard.
