Swimming lessons have concluded for the 2021-2022 summer season.
Thank you to all our members who participated in the 2021-2022 summer season of swimming lessons.
As Carlton Baths is an outdoor pool, we do not run swimming lessons over the winter period.
We are excited to restart our swimming lesson program at Carlton Baths for Term 4.
If you are interested in joining, please keep an eye out for the enquiry form on our website closer to the time to be added to the wait list.
Introduce your child to water in a playful and secure environment. In the infant program, a parent or carer supports the baby or toddler in the pool. This helps build confidence and supports 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.
Our swimming teachers
Our teachers hold nationally accredited swimming teacher and water safety certificates, and specialised qualifications for teaching infants. They have current CPR and first aid certificates, and have training in safeguarding children and young people.
