WE ARE PENGUINS
PENGUINS Barcelona is happiness, vitality, learning and growth in the water.
Movement is essential for the child’s cognitive, psychomotor and emotional development; water is the ideal medium since it offers complete freedom of movement, in a fun and stimulating environment.
We have created an innovative space dedicated to aquatic activities with facilities specifically designed for babies, children and pregnant women, where you will share very special moments with your family. A magical environment to spark the creativity of your little ones, and their desire to learn to swim through play, imagination and emotions. A space also designed to provide future moms the best support and preparation for childbirth, together with expert midwives.
Our unique swimming pool of crystal clear water is waiting for you, with best-in-class and efficient salt treatment technologies, and no chlorine odor. Our water is safer, our water is healthier.
We have built a team of great professionals, highly skilled and with a diverse set of nationalities, professional background and experience. They all share the same language in the water: passion, creativity, care and patience, 4 essential ingredients to make each class an exciting and enriching experience. Our team has been trained by expert teachers from the most recognized and innovative swimming schools in the world (New York – USA, Sweden, Spain).
Welcome to Penguins!
Did you know that a penguin can swim at 30 kph in the water? Isn’t that incredible? But the hero of this story is not the penguin… this is the Water.
We discovered water in Switzerland at the end of long workdays in a multinational, and later with Ana’s pregnancy with our son Philippe. Freedom, serenity and well-being was what we felt every time we went swimming, or joined childbirth preparation sessions in the water.
Philippe was born and we decided to keep this link with the water. We started to attend workshops and lectures on education, and read numerous books on this topic. What we discovered is the importance of movement during the first 6 years of life, for a proper physical, intellectual and emotional development.
At the same time we realized how the water filled our children with joy, allowed them to move with total freedom, and stimulated their imagination.
We loved it so much that we started traveling to different countries, Sweden, Denmark, USA … to discover the best schools in the world, and create our Penguins school. A place where your child will grow up happy and will become as agile as penguins in the water; a place where future moms will enjoy a great activity, beneficial to themselves and to their baby’s development.
See you in the water!
