A few months before our daughter’s first birthday, we were looking for a nice activity to do together with her in Haarlem and coincidentally we came across the self-rescue course given by Linde. It very soon turned out to be much more than just a bonding and fun activity to do with her. Gradually and very methodically, Linde taught our daughter crucial water survival skills and helped her gain confidence and self-awareness. Eventually, our daughter started enjoying real swimming in the pool and the sea even more than splashing in the bathtub!
Linde is a very experienced and deeply knowledgeable coach. She is caring, calm and patient and gives a lot of love and individual attention to any of her small students. She trains not only babies and children, but also their parents on how to work together with their children to maintain and build on the skills learned. Indeed, when we were swimming in the sea with our daughter last summer, we were very proud that she could do - to the great surprise of many other people at the beach - all these cool stuff in such a young age, without floaters!
We can’t wait to continue this unique learning experience with our daughter, and would definitely recommend the self-rescue course and Linde in particular to any parent! Haarlem
