Swim School for Babies

Give your baby the skills to be safe around the water as they age

Parents understand that kids should learn to swim. But what often gets overlooked is when they should start.

In fact, when the Sydney Morning Herald interview Justin Scarr, the CEO of the Royal Life Saving Society, he warned that kids should start swimming lessons before they hit school. This would give them the skills they needs later in life.

In fact, a recent study found an 88 percent reduction in drowning risk in kids ages 1 to 4 who had taken swimming lessons.

At Adelaide Aquatic Centre, our instructors will engage your litle with songs and games while using water toys in a safe and enjoyable way, to teach them the skills they need. All classes are held in our Leisure Pool which is always heated to 31 degrees to make babies and parents comfortable.

When your baby takes classes with us, they will learn:

• How to get used to the water and be more confident.
• The basic techniques to rolling, floating, and putting their face under
• How to use their new muscles to move in the water
• How to safely get in and out of the pool
• How to relate to adults in a brand new – and exciting – environment

Join new parents who are all helping their children.

The American Association of Pediatrics says children can safely take swim lessons as early as one year old. These fun, interactive, and informative classes are a great way for parents to bond with their little ones while introducing them to the water.

Over the past three decades, we've helped thousands of young children develop their skills, and set on the path to become strong, capable swimmers. And once they do move up into the top Babies level, they'll be rewarded, with 30% off their next pair of goggles from the Swim Shop, from Australia's most popular swim brand, Speedo.

There is no pre-assessment, simply get in contact below. 

With your child’s enrolments they can come and enjoy the pools at any time during the week.

Make sure you book in quick – there’s only a limited number of spots to ensure your baby gets enough one-on-one time to develop their skills.
