toddler's swimming !!!!!

hello, I have a few classes of toddlers 12-18 months ÷ and I am finding that all they want to do is jump in off the side, they do sometimes participate in some of the more active activities but generally they just want to do their own thing on the side of the pool, and have lost interest in woggles/floats etc. It is great that they are so confident but I am worried that we are not doing enough, does anyone have any tips on activities to keep them interested. Thank you cerys

Hi Cerys

Great to see that you are expanding into toddler classes. Have you tried setting up circuits? Make jumping in one of the activites, which you will need to supervise then set other other 'stations' around the pool that they can visit eg. water pouring, sinkers, squirty toys, balls into hoops. That way they can move around the pool but still have the excitement of coming back to jump in.
