We accept enrolments all year round for our Water Babies and Learn To Swim programs:
Water Babies Classes – for swimmers 6 months to 3 years
Water Babies – Level One – 6 – 18 months (Class size max. 7)
These fun and friendly classes use specially adapted games, songs and routines to make learning enjoyable and educate parents on water safety for their little swimmer. Conducted with the help of a parent present in the water, the lessons are designed to encourage children to experience water play and movement.
Water Babies – Level Two – 18m – 3 years (Class size max. 7)
Also conducted with the help of a parent present in the water, the lessons are designed to encourage children to experience water play and movement using specially adapted games, songs and routines to make learning enjoyable.

Learn to Swim Classes – for swimmers 3 years and older
With plenty of encouragement and positive reinforcement, our Austswim qualified Learn To Swim instructors focus on teaching children to be water safe and swim independently.
With a maximum of three children per lesson our aim is to accelerate children’s learning. Once beginner swimmers can float and dog paddle independently with confidence, we then introduce swimming strokes.
These lessons lay the foundations for efficient swim skills that will last a lifetime.
