Our swimming lessons focus on safety first, with particular attention focused on teaching techniques that may one day save a life.

Introduce your child to water in a playful and secure environment. A parent or carer supports the baby or toddler in the pool, which helps to build confidence and support the child's learning process.

Children will learn to:

  • be familiar with having water over their face and head;
  • control their breath and blow bubbles;
  • float, paddle and propel themselves.
