Get to know the Aura Swim Team: Meet Flo!

Aura Wales recently welcomed Flo Vickery to the Aura Swim Team; Flo is a swimming teacher within our Little Paddlers swimming programme for babies and toddlers. Flo kindly shared her thoughts with us about her new role, the importance of water confidence from an early age, and why she loves to teach babies and toddlers on the Little Paddlers by Aura programme.

She explained: “I enjoy swimming and grew up swimming with a local club for most of my childhood. I am a qualified primary teacher and have worked with children and babies for around 12 years. I love helping babies and toddlers develop their confidence in the water and develop new skills. It is great to see them having fun playing in the pool and helping to ensure that more children are learning water safety early from an early age.”

Little Paddlers is a swimming lesson programme designed especially for babies and toddlers up to 3 years, and aims to help develop fundamental movement and core skills in an aquatic environment. Flo explained: “During Little Paddlers sessions we sing songs, have fun, develop water confidence, learn water safety and promote a strong adult – child bond in the pool environment.”

The main benefits of the sessions include, in Flo’s words, “building water confidence in children and their adult(s), developing water safety, and having fun playing in the pool”. The sessions are also beneficial for “enhancing the bond between adult and child in a water based environment, and helps children to develop their social skills, learn an important life skill and improve their sleep routine and appetite”.

Little Paddlers by Aura is a great starting point for introducing “an important life skill” at an early age, and a great chance for young children and their families to enjoy the water together and make memories along the way.
