About Us

  • Out of consideration for the development of the child’s personality and his harmonious education, the desire to create a special place with a warm and relaxing, but stimulating and dynamic atmosphere, based on understanding and mutual respect where children are exposed to learning experiences that stimulate curiosity and creativity, was born. Thus, through individual aquatic education programs, Acvatic Bebe Club is committing to bring confidence, self-respect and safety for every child.

    The first three years of a child’s life are the most important, what is happening in these years in terms of its formation, having important effects upon the individual for his entire life. Thus, placing the newborn in an aquatic environment, assures continuity for the fetal development, accelerating the dynamics of bio-psycho-somatic evolution through the autonomy of movements.

    The child’s adaptation to the aquatic environment from a very young age sparked the interest of many parents nowadays, largely due to the benefits in both the bio-psycho-social and emotional as well as motor and affective.

    Important to know is that the development scheme of each infant and child is different from one another, each having its own pace of development. Therefore, this development scheme of the child must evolve in the right direction, and satisfying the demand to move by creating an appropriate framework, furthers the physical and mental development of children.

  • Aquatic education activity leads to the following objectives:

    • satisfy the urge to move of the newborn and infant, which represents the engine of their psychomotor development
    • mental and physical growth and harmonious development of a newborn and infant;
    •  improve functional capacity of the cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal system
    •  improve the overall ability of effort;
    • develop motor skills

    In addition, the scenery of aquatic activities enable the development of social interaction and it represents the first educational experience beyond the home environment, so it has to be a positive experience.

    For this reason, in our club, we only chose programs with individual sessions (instructor-child), with a maximum of 5 children per session, because this way the instructor will get to know very well the personality and pace of development of each child, and interact with him/her in the direction of positive stimulation and development, and the environment where the swimming session is running can be controlled in a more efficient manner.

    Newborns love swimming and they should have the opportunity to practice it ever since they were born, first the bath at home in their familiar environment for comfort, then under a specialist’s guidance in a specialty club, and when they turn 4 months old, in our pool especially designed and with specific programs dedicated to them.

    Our instructors, through their professional training (graduates of the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport / graduates of the Teacher Training Department / certificate / swimming coach license), but also by their personal qualities (empathy, sociability and expressiveness, ability to work with young children, distributive attention, concentration, resistance to physical and intellectual effort), are able to achieve in each lesson a fun learning environment, in which children respond to challenges in a positive way and acquire skills quickly and precisely, due to the individual instructor-child program.

    At the pool, each instructor follows a pedagogical approach that includes tools and methodological indications for beginners and advanced, leading to the framework objectives, specific to each age group. But when the child discovers this environment, a special attention is required from the instructor, which will need to customize each session depending on the availability and personal pace of the child, the elements being structured such as a game.

    Through the game, the child will learn the moves, will mimic what he sees at other children or parent / instructor, through game a relaxation atmosphere is being created, an atmosphere of trust and safety the children need; in the game, the child can make mistakes and start over, until he manages to complete the task.

    Each aquatic education session is generally structured in the form of three links; their content is different depending on the child’s age and availability.

    a) Acclimatization and adaptation to aquatic environment

    In the first part of the session it is recommended that every time accommodation with water should take place, regardless of the child’s age, in the limited space at the edge of the basin, the role of this process being acclimatization, of accommodation with the pool ambiance and of preparation of the body for effort. the rest of the activity is given by the importance to this first link of the lesson.

    b) The content of the lesson

    After accommodation was done and a state of comfort and safety has been installed, we will continue the means of work specific to the age, on the spot or while moving.
    For children aged 4 months – 1 year, travel forms are made only with the instructor, using handholds which do not block the little one’s movements (articulations). Materials used:

    • perforated carpet – for positioning, creating an intimate play, moving from a position to another, educating balance, stimulating movement onshore (dragging)
    • floating stick with key – stimulating movements of arms and legs and vertical position in the aquatic environment, which prepares the vertical position voluntarily adopted onshore and for walking
    • different size toys, colors and functions – to initiate play and capture attention, stimulate the gripping reflex

    Also, at this age, the apnea reflex is stimulated in the moment of immersion by printing of a specific aquatic breathing.

    After this period, we will continue to enrich the motor and informational luggage, through the complexity and diversity of exercises, having the coordinating movements stimulated specific to the aquatic activity, followed by travelling short distances in both immersion as well as self-propulsion to the surface, with the help of floating objects (lifesaver, perforated carpet).
    After the age two and a half years old, when the first preparation notions for swimming initiation, through the horizontal positioning on water and coordinating leg movements with specific aquatic breathing and coordinating movements of arms and legs during immersion.

    c) Termination – recovering after exercise

    This link is meant to adjust functional parameters (respiratory rate, heart rate) to resting values by static, passive or active exercise, avoiding fatigue to install at the end of the session.

    We made sure that all items in our club meet European standards of safety and quality. We are the only club of its kind in Bucharest where water treatment and disinfection is achieved through a mixt installation based on UV and ozone, with a direct effect on the water and air quality around the pool to get a fresh aroma, total free of chlorine smell. Through the ventilation and dehumidification system that we chose, we made sure that we always maintain an ideal microclimate for developing aquatic education programs. Water temperature will have a constant value between 31.5 and 32 degrees, and the air’s between 32.5 and 33 degrees, humidity also keeping its normal parameters.

    Newborns seem to always be in a race against time, being somehow forced to gain mobility before gaining too much weight. Aquatic education offers the perfect opportunity for this to be achieved, being the only sport activity that can be practiced from the early months of life, but it should be done only with qualified instructors that have specific teaching materials.

    In this respect, we purchased special teaching equipment from a French company, whose experience of over 30 years, allowed to create innovative products, both in terms of materials used in the production process as well as to facilitate children, through games, rich and relevant findings of the environment surrounding them.

    We look forward to meet you and to build together wonderful experiences for your baby.

    What happens if the baby starts crying?

    Normally, babies respond positively to water, but the reasons for crying can be multiple (he is tired, hungry, noise bothered him has abdominal cramps, has swollen gums, etc.). Therefore the discomfort must be identified and reduced, because, if associated with water, it can cause a negative when getting in contact with water the next time.

    If the baby gets water in his ear, can he get an infection caused by it?

    • This can occur in the case of an infection of the external ear, only if the water that remains in the ear canal has not been removed, which allows bacteria to cause an infection.
