Waterbabies Programs

Recommended age 6 months - 2.5 years

Max 8 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes

These baby swimming lessons are the ideal opportunity to introduce your infant to the aquatic environment through the use of rhymes and activities. Such skills as submerging, floating and the promotion of movement through water are developed in these swimming lessons. We have two levels in our waterbabies classes, they are Waterbabies 1 for ages 6 months to 18 months and Waterbabies 2 from 19 months to 30 months.

We believe that there are many advantages in starting children at this age to learn to swim both physically and mentally. Some advantages of staring your child's swimming lessons from an early age include:

  • Water familiarisation
  • Exercise and development of motor skills
  • Bonding between parent and child as well as offering a social environment for child, parent and all participants

Being a part of our Swim and Play program is an excellent start to teaching babies the skills required to become strong, safe and confident in the water. However, it is still necessary for parents to be vigilant when they are in or around water with their children including backyard swimming pools, beaches and waterways.
