The bond between mother and child is one of the most basic and important ingredients in a baby’s development. It is the basis of security in every individual. The need for security is a need for three major components in a child’s life: safety, trust and unconditional love. Swimming provides quality bonding time. Water creates an ideal medium to spend quality time together. It promotes skin to skin contact and trust.

The experiences of early childhood, specifically the basic bond of mother and child, help form the brain circuits for music, math, language and emotion. All learning and feelings are built upon the foundation of this bond.
