Toddler swimming lessons

The State Swim Kindergarten program provides a fun environment to teach children aged 2.5 years to 4 years deep water safety skills. The swimming classes provide toddlers with the skills to become strong, safe and confident swimmers in the water in a comfortable and encouraging environment. If your child is younger than 2.5 years, be sure to have a look at our Waterbabies program.

We have two levels in our program; Kindergarten 1 and Kindergarten 2. As a skilled based program, swimmers will complete both levels. Merit awards and certificates are presented on the completion of skills, and once skills are achieved, swimmers will progress to the next class.

What to expect at our Kindergarten 1 Swimming Lessons?

Our Kindergarten 1 swimming lessons focus on moving through the water using a specially-developed under-arm stroke. The aim of this toddler swim class is for our swimmers to feel relaxed and happy in the water.

What Merit Awards will toddlers receive?
  • Solo swim with arm floats
  • 15m swim with arm floats
  • Face in the water and blowing bubbles, 5 second unaided back float, push off bar without floats
What happens when a toddler graduates Kindergarten 1?

Following on from swimmers achieving – face in the water and blowing bubbles, 5 second unaided back float, and push off bar without floats, they will receive a Merit award and graduate to Kindergarten 2. Or, if they are turning 4 years old they will graduate to the Glides class, the first class of our 400 Gold program.

What are the age requirements of your kindergarten classes?
  • Child classes (a caregiver is not required to accompany your swimmer in the pool)
  • Recommended age is 2.5 years to 4 years
  • If your swimmer is four years or older, explore our Learn to Swim – 400 Gold Program.
