Infant Aquatics Classes
There is much debate about whether there is benefit to small children in receiving progress awards. There is no doubt that they are fun for parents and nice for children to look back on as they get older.
I have to say that I
personally run more with the counter-argument which includes things like;
As a mummy I wanted to be able to look back on my own childrens successes and be able to record them, together with those incidents that you can look back on and laugh, include photos of class and classmates, progress on holidays, what was liked best etc etc
As a result of this I have put together an Activity Progress Book which I believe satisfies the need to record information (we all say we'll remember, but we never do) but without the downsides which exist in an award scheme. There are loads of spaces for photos and spaces for recording memories, comparative events between land and water, little classmates, skills mastered (in no particular order) and the reactions!
They are ring bound and 56 pages long and when filled in provide a lovely keepsake. They are supplied 'at cost' at £7.50. If you would like one, you need to order it in as we don't carry them with us at class so they don't get dog-eared.
