BABY SWIM

Babies from the age of 6 months love the warm, light and bright environment of our pool.

You can quickly change on a change table beside the pool, hop in and take part in your lesson. Songs, toys, and activities are the way that we make you and your baby feel comfortable in the water over the 30-minute lessons. In a group of 8 babies and ‘carers’, you will see the progression from water babies to independent little swimmers who won’t need you in the pool anymore!

PRESCHOOL SWIM

Now that your child has turned 3 and has gained the necessary confidence to join a class of 4 students and their teacher, you can sit back in the viewing room and watch the fun unfold. The preschool classes are all about water confidence and then gaining the subsequent skills to move independently and most importantly, confidently through the water. We use flotation intermittently throughout the class to assist the kids in this process. Jumping in, dog paddling, facial submersion, blowing bubbles and back floats are what we are looking to see before we start teaching the four main strokes. Limit of 4 children per 30 minute class.
