Learn To Swim Comfortably with Bert Lozada Swim School

I can't swim. As embarassing as it may sound but its true. The only person who can swim in our family is my partner. He taught the kids the basics but I really think we should consider them enrolling in a swimming class.

I was privileged to be invited to try Bert Lozada Swim School's programs. I've heard about them a few times and been contemplating enrolling our kids because we need to consider the location, fee and schedule.

It was a weekday and I decided to bring my little girl with me to the swimming lesson. Chinita loves the water so much same as her brothers. We went to Ace Water Spa early in the morning together with a few mommy bloggers with their kids. Before the swimming lesson, Angelo Lozada explained what they can offer from BLSS. He reiterated the importance of swimming comfortably under the water rather than swimming from point A to B. What I also like about BLSS is that they have wide programs which includes babies.

My Baby and Me Program - Bert Lozada Swim School

Chinita and I got to try the 'My Baby and Me Program' with coach Pepper. This program is advisable to 6 months to 3 years old. It's an aquatic program designed to teach parents and children to be familiar with the water. Parents are taught how to help their child to be confident and happy in the water, and encourage learning through fun activities. This program will prepare your infant/toddler physically, psychologically and socially for more structured swimming lessons later in life.
