Every Thursday between 10 and 11am we have been holding TODDLER SPLASH sessions, which have proven to be a real hit with local families in Nidri! Specifically for little ones aged under 5, Toddler Splash is all about building water confidence by getting the children familiarised with the equipment we have and having lots of fun in the sea. Accompanied by a parent or guardian, and supervised by one of our instructors, the children are free to splash around in the shallows - playing water games, bouncing on lilos and jumping off paddle boards.
With some encouragement from the instructor, the littles ones are also given the opportunity to play in the boats and have a go at holding the tiller to steer. In some sessions an instructor will take them out on a dinghy with their parent or guardian, showing them what it’s like to sail out in the deeper waters of the bay. It’s a relaxed affair with children and parents free to drop in and out throughout the hour as they wish to.
Introducing the toddlers to the kit is loads of fun for them and a great way for them to become excited about being in and on the water. It’s also a brilliant way to meet new friends (and other parents!). On every Thursday 10 – 11am, come down and join in – all families welcome!
