Water Confidence - Babies

Our water confidence classes are designed for infants ranging from 2 months to 2 and a half years of age. The class is conducted with a parent present in the water and encourage children to be comfortable submerging and floating on their backs. Games, songs and routines are used extensively to make the classes fun for the children as well as building their confidence in the water. The two levels in this program include: Billabong Babies & Little Fish.

Timetable:

Billabong Babies are 3 months old to 2 ½ to 3 years old. A parent or a caregiver is in the water with the child enjoying the experience and bonding with them. Children will develop their skills at their own pace. As the child’s comfort level, motor skills and self-esteem progresses so does the child’s level of competency. Many babies become very confident and self-sufficient in the water. The best part of all is that they all develop a love for the water and are on their way to a healthy lifestyle!! The goals of the class are to instill water confidence, independence and love for the water. Activities include songs, games, running on the mat, submerging, and swimming to and from the platform.

Timetable:

Little fish are advanced babies who love the water and are still swimming with their parents in their lessons but are also very confident and can swim independently, usually paddling two to three metres on their own. Most are comfortable doing a ‘turn-a- round’ and can often roll over from their front to their back and onto their parents shoulders. Parents are still in the water, but new skills, such as floating with the kick board are introduced. Little Fish will be striving to interact with the teacher; learning to take turns, follow directions and other skills in readiness of going to the Tadpole class. ‘Fun’ is still emphasised as it is important that the children continue to enjoy their water experience.
