Private: 30 min duration, age: from 6 months to 23 months (not necessary an adult)

Group: 30 min duration, age: from 6 months to 23 months (adult must be in the water, with the child)

  • Adaptation to water environment

  • Socialization

  • Helps and stimulates motor and cognitive development

  • Strengthening of muscles

  • Balance

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Stimulates appetite

For the success of any new skill, repetition is crucial. Especially when it comes to survival techniques for children from 6 months to 2 years old, the ability of the parents or guardians to reinforce the learning is fundamental. That is why, in Fabiana Nakamura's methodology, the children's parents and/or guardians participate in the classes so that they can reinforce the learned techniques every time these children are in the pool. The advantage is that, in this case, these classes can also be held in groups with additional stimulus for the children, because when they see other people of the same age doing the same exercise they don't feel so intimidated.

The exercises performed in these classes are planned in an organized way, through creative activities, in a playful way, sometimes games, providing the children's development; working the emotional intelligence and socialization, making the class more pleasant and, at the same time, more exciting.


Private: 30 min duration, age 24 months to 3 years

Group (2 or 3 kids): 30 min duration, age 24 months to 4 years

  • Improves notion of time and space

  • Improves posture

  • Improves respiratory conditioning

  • Improves motor coordination

  • Strengthens muscles

  • Socialization

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Stimulates appetite

The classes are planned based on didactics (beginning, middle, and end), dynamics (organization and structure of the class), and development (focus on results, adaptation of activities if necessary), thus preventing the risk of drowning.

Thus, they have the following logical sequence so that the children have a transition between entering the pool and beginning survival exercises.

The fundamental and essential aquatic skills that need to be worked on for survival swimming are the following: (1) balance, characterized by muscular work aimed at stabilizing the trunk; (2) propulsion, the ability to move the body in the liquid environment; and, above all (3) breathing, which is inverse to that in the terrestrial environment.


Infant I class:

Private: 30 min  duration, age 4 to 6 years

Group (2 to 5 kids): 40 min duration, age 4 to 6 years

Infant II class:

Private: 30 min duration, age 7 to 14

Group: 45 min duration (2 to 8 kids), age 7 to 14

  • Stimulates psychomotor development, assisting in the improvement of the child's physical capacity and abilities, contributing to the evolution of balance, upper and lower limb coordination, and agility

  • Prevents and reduces obesity, without great risks of impact

  • Strengthens the cardiorespiratory capacity, because it helps to control breathing, strengthening the diaphragm, besides increasing the body's immune system

  • Prevents accidents, but adult supervision is always importante 

  • Develops the cognitive process

  • Helps socialization when performed in a group

In this phase we start, we perfect the four swims, with the turns, we work even more on the respiratory capacity, and if the child is interested, we encourage him/ her to pursue a career as a swimmer.


Private or group: 45 min duration

  • Physical conditioning, developing cardiorespiratory capacity

  • Strengthening muscles and joints

  • Reduced impact, avoiding the risk of injuries

  • Weight control

  • Water safety

  • Relieving stress, by improving memory, cognitive function, immune response, and mood

  • Overcoming traumas, which can help increase self-esteem, develop self-confidence, provide security, and improve health

  • Improved posture and flexibility

  • Quality of sleep

Here in the adult age group, we find several situations, those who come by medical recommendation, the ones who want to de-stress, others to improve, and still the ones who want to practice for triathlons.


  • Works motor coordination, sense of space balance

  • Cognitive work, using games and play

  • Because it develops strength, endurance, and speed, it increases the capacity of the cardio system

  • Achieves independence and self-confidence

  • Strengthens muscles

  • Interaction of teacher/student (eye to eye)

  • It is a relaxing activity, providing relief from tension and crisis

  • Safety

  • Works side vision, improving direction

  • Explores the language and verbalization, through hearing, seeing and interpreting the exercises

  • Improves quality of life

Special needs students begin with individual classes, to allow for the child's proper environment, and then the teacher places the child in a group, because it is very important to include him/her in society.

Classes that are canceled after the due date will be charged as normal, except for illness-related reasons.



At the end of the summer, all students will be evaluated, and will receive on
Evaluation sheet.
