Infant Learn to Swim Classes

DKHAC_2017_0119.jpg

For babies 6 months to toddlers up to 3 years we build water confidence, teach swimming skills like floating and kicking, and start on swimming strokes.

Preschool age children are the most at risk of drowning so our fully qualified infant teachers also focus on teaching them how to react in an emergency fall-in situation.

These lessons require you to join them and have some fun in the water.

Infant classes are held Sunday to Friday.  Sunday classes start from 8 am and weekday classes from 9.30 am.  Each class is 30 minutes.

Cost - $16.50 per lesson.  Fees are paid per term and are due at the commencement of each term.
