Water babies: 6 – 36 months


Our baby swim lessons are a gentle way to introduce your baby to water safety and water familiarisation. All water baby sessions include fun games, activities and catchy tunes! Come prepared to have lots of fun, making wonderful memories with your baby. Baby swimming lessons are a great way to build gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination and confidence.

Your baby will need an adult or caregiver (16 years or older) in the pool with them at all times during these lessons.

As the lessons progress, we’ll show you as the caregiver how to hold, move and submerge your baby safely. Water is soothing for babies and many new parents find this to be a wonderful bonding experience. You and your baby will love our warm indoor pool. Lessons are available year-round and have a maximum capacity of ten babies to one teacher.

Please note: every child four years and under must wear a swimming nappy. These are available at the front desk and from your local supermarkets.


Pre-School: 3 years – 5 years


Pre-schoolers love water and by three years old your child cannot wait to jump in the pool while mum, dad and caregivers encourage them from the poolside. Yes - we can make this happen for you and your child!

Small class sizes maximise learning; your child will enjoy a 20-minute class with one teacher to a maximum of four children.

Whilst having fun with your children, we will teach them water familiarisation, confidence and key life skills. These classes are based on ability; however, an in-water assessment is not necessary at this age and can be done in conversation with a parent or guardian.

As your child meets their personal goals, They will move through the levels and be placed into the appropriate school-age sessions once they reach their fifth birthday.

Pre-school lessons take place year-round in the wonderfully warm outdoor mineral pool. The pool is heated and kept at a warm temperature of 31 degrees all year round.
