This is where development and play come together. We are so enthusiastic about introducing swim skills to all our Aqua babies. Supporting Mum and Dad during this time is something we take every seriously. We understand you may have lots of questions and might be nervous about introducing water skills to your baby.
Be assured we have trained, qualified, experienced Senior Teachers specialising in this age group. We have taught hundreds of babies, and through that experience we have developed wonderful techniques that will enhance your child’s development. We happily provide friendly supportive instruction, guidance, ensuring both parents can be active in their child’s progression.
We teach from 4mths to 2yrs plus in this class. progression to a class without the parent happens only when;
- a child is over 2 yrs
- can move forward through the water supported with flotation
- displays independent skills to function in the next level
- discussions with parents about the benefits
On occasion a child may present with settling issues relating to detaching from Mum or Dad. This is not uncommon, and we are mindful its your family’s first experience. We use techniques that include parents in the process and provide updates during the settling process. We only teach from a holistic nurturing approach.
We do not advocate any style of infant survival swim lessons You may come across different social media videos showing distressed infants in lessons. Be assured this is NOT a method used in our centre. We care deeply about our your child’s well being and want to reassure you our teaching is focused on learning skills ,your child is happiness and a future love of water.
As your baby grows you may need to change times. View our timetable to find the most suitable time.
