Adult & Baby (4 months – 1 year)
This is a fantastic way to introduce babies to an aquatic environment. The class teaches safe handling skills of babies in the water through the use of nursery rhymes and games, building the confidence of both the baby and parent in a fun and friendly environment.
Adult & Toddler (1 year - 2 years)
Adult and toddler classes build upon skills already learned through adult and baby classes, however it is not necessary to have attended adult and baby. This class focuses on the development of basic motor skills and swimming movements, through fun and games.
Adult & Child (2 years +)
This class starts to introduce independence in the water in preparation for Pre-school classes. The support of the adult is available for added encouragement and confidence.
Pre-school is the first opportunity for children aged 3 – 4 ½ years to experience full independence in the pool. The emphasis is on having fun in the water through the use of games and imagination and is specific to their age and stage of development. Through play children will learn the core aquatic skills that are essential for a smooth progression through the Learn 2 Swim levels.
Pre-school advanced is the next stage for children who are still in this age bracket and have completed the Pre-school criteria. Entry into Pre-school Advanced is through teacher recommendation only.
