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.
