Infant/Toddler Program

Our infant and toddler classes aim to promote water confidence and familiarisation by using a range of educational songs, games and activities.  A parent or guardian is required to enter the water with the student for the duration of the class. We recommend that adults wear a loose t-shirt or rash top over their bathers, as it gives your baby something to grip and hold.
