Our baby swimming lessons gently foster the natural affinity that babies have with water, building confidence in both the child and, often, the parent. Our baby swimming lessons in Mackay are designed to help babies, even at this early age, make choices about how and when they put their faces in the water. It is a bonding experience like no other and a unique opportunity for connection. Some of our tadpoles are ready to move to starfish swimming lessons at 6 months old, depending on their levels of strength and coordination, but we can keep progressing them in tadpole swimming lessons until they are 9 months old.

What are the learning outcomes for your tadpole class?

1/ Safe entry into the pool by both adults and babies.

2/ Float on the back or surf on the front with movement (bobbing and snaking) around the pool, and return to an upright position with full adult support.

3/ Experience the water’s movement around their bodies in different ways, such as swaying, lifts and bounces, swings and dips, and cradle rock holds, with relaxed support provided by the parent.

4/ Be at ease with water being poured down the back of the head on a clear signal by the adult

5/ Using a buoyancy aid, swim with the baby supported on the parent’s shoulder/chest.

6/ Exiting the pool safely.
