Babies and Toddlers
Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup for Babies & Toddlers
Help your child become comfortable and confident in and around the water by enrolling into our Infants or Preschool Splish Splash program at Michael Wenden Aquatic Leisure Centre.
Lessons are designed for babies 6 months to 3.5 years, catering for infant, toddler and preschool participants attending with their parents/guardians or appropriate adult carers.
We understand that your first lessons can be slightly daunting but with a fully trained and accredited swim teacher present at all times there is nothing to worry about.
Lessons are structured and designed with you and your baby in mind. With a gentle introduction into the water in a safe and welcoming environment, infants can start to enjoy the water from birth.
Please be aware that parents should have an understanding of water skills and safety that they can introduce to their child.
If required, we can offer parents/guardians further aquatic education through our adult swimming lessons.
Did You Know?
When babies and toddlers repeat an action over and over, they’re starting to master a new skill and working towards strengthening their neural pathways.
Our program is amazing for familiarising your child with the water and for early childhood development.
You can get your baby prepared for swimming before you even get to the swimming pool. Use bath time at home to get your baby used to the feeling of splashing and being immersed in water.
