Baby and pre-school teachers are able to seek employment in a wide variety of leisure facilities including private health clubs and school swimming pools through to large local authority leisure centres. As a baby and pre-school teacher, you would be responsible for planning, delivering and evaluating a series of progressive and fun lessons teaching babies through to pre-schoolers and their accompanying adult. You will be able to teach a range of aquatic and safety skills such as floating, rotation, water confidence and basic swimming strokes. You would be responsible for ensuring the lesson area and appropriate equipment is safe and promote good teaching and learning. The STA Award in Aquatic Teaching – Baby and Pre-School Swimming qualification aims to produce teachers who can teach aquatic activities, including paddle strokes to babies, toddlers and pre-school children during adult and child lessons. They are able to deliver the STA Starfish programme and the STAnley Series of STA’s International Learn to Swim Programme. This qualification is for learners who wish to work with babies, pre-schoolers and their accompanying adults, and help them to develop, both as swimmers and individuals in the aquatic environment. There is no experience of working with children or teaching swimming lessons required. This qualification could appeal to parents looking for a career that fits in around their childcare commitments, those interested in pursuing a career in the leisure industry. Those already employed within a leisure environment who are looking to progress their career or those who are already working as a swimming teacher who wish to offer lessons to babies and pre-schoolers alongside their current beginner classes. Experienced baby and pre-school teachers can expand their baby and pre-school knowledge further by progressing to the STA Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching – Baby and Pre-School. Experienced baby and pre-school teachers are often employed as mentors for newly qualified baby and pre-school teachers, or take on the role of swimming co-ordinators within their swim schools. In addition, baby and pre-school teachers who meet the pre-requisites can share their knowledge and experience with the next generation of baby and pre-school teachers by becoming an aquatic tutor. Alternatively, baby and pre-school teachers may move into teaching those with disabilities or beginner learners.
