The skills to learn, grow and explore!

Our structured swimming program for infants under 3 years old will teach children of this age group confidence in swimming solo, essential skills for building strokes, and crucial safety awareness. At Aquatic Achievers, our baby swim lessons aren’t just about learning to swim — they’re about learning to live. When you start swimming lessons for babies with us, your infant will be developing in more areas than just swimming.

Safety Focused

As babies and infants’ love of water grows, so must their understanding of water safety. By teaching various core safety skills our 0–3-year-old program leads the way in making safe and confident children at an early age.

Learn to Learn

Swimming lessons are often the first “classrooms” infants encounter in their early years. Baby swimming lessons contain structured learning, group dynamics and an all-new environment, which can help infants settle in, become more comfortable with themselves, and start their journey of learning.

Skills to be Social

The ability to swim, even in its most basic form, is crucial for our youngest and most vulnerable age group. By becoming confident around water as a baby, your infant will not only progress faster in later stages, but also have the confidence to engage in water play with friends. This head start also puts them in a great position for joining water-based activities at Kindy, School, and other social groups.

Life Lessons

Kite Surfer? Scuba Diver? Seal Trainer? Learning to swim opens the doors for a whole host of future careers, hobbies, and pastimes. We know that they aren’t even 3 yet, but by starting infant swimming lessons now, you are giving them the best chance at living out their best life in years to come (which will be here before you know it).

Our Starter Sessions are designed to allow families the chance to:

– Experience Aquatic Achievers and its program

-Assess your child’s ability and recommend the right level to start in.

-Answer any questions you might have around starting lessons.

Starter Sessions for infants and children in the 0–3-year old bracket can be conveniently booked online, with sessions usually available across weekdays and weekends.

Will I be in the water during the swimming lessons?

Yes — parents or caregivers are in the pool with their infant during this stage of our swimming lesson program. Not only does this help their trust, participation, and cultivate great bonding opportunities, but it can also be a lot of fun for both of you!

 

Where can I find baby swimming lessons near me?

Aquatic Achievers has dedicated swim schools all around the country, with 11 locations across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and the ACT. Browse our locations to find the nearest swim school near you, then book in a swimming lesson for your baby. Bring them to the swim school at your scheduled time and get ready to have fun!

 

What will my child learn from swimming lessons? 

In Aquatic Achievers’ structured swimming program for under 3-year-olds, we focus on the following key areas:

  • Foundational water safety
  • Water familiarisation
  • Confidence
  • Coordination development

We’ll gradually progress to basic swimming skills like floating, breath control, kicking, and more, laying the groundwork for more complex swimming skills to develop as your baby grows older.

 

What should I do before my baby’s first swimming lesson?

Before your baby’s first swimming lesson, it’s a good idea to spend time around water at home (supervised of course). Run a bath — splash water and play with toys. Your infant will need an appropriate swim nappy for lessons.

 

What if my baby doesn’t want to swim? 

At Aquatic Achievers, we are experienced with coaching infants and babies in the water. However, sometimes, they can be frightened and stressed around the water. We’ll take a caring, gentle approach, allowing your little one to become more comfortable in the water. We’re realistic – we know that it can take time to feel comfortable swimming; and we are passionate about letting infants grow at their own pace. What you can do is reinforce your infant’s swimming achievements and progress — together, we’ll let them know that they’re doing great!
