Our Baby Water Awareness classes provide you with a joyous and relaxed introduction to swimming for your little one. Not only will your child enjoy the water, but they will also learn essential survival routines and methods to swim independently. These early years of swimming instruction will cultivate water safety and accelerate their learning milestones.
Catering to infants aged 3 months to 3 years, our Baby Program offers expert guidance from our experienced instructors. Learn to Swim Victoria's classes feature a variety of carefully crafted routines to encourage and build confidence in your baby.
We teach breath control, survival skills, reflex actions, and floating drills take centre stage, equipping your little ones with crucial life-saving abilities.
Our classes create a fun and stimulating atmosphere, providing ample opportunities for your babies to explore and relish their surroundings.
Each class runs for 30 minutes, with a maximum of 7 babies per class. Please note: A parent or caregiver is required to accompany and participate in the water with their baby.
