Waterbabies (6 mths - 2.5 yrs)

Baby Swimming Lessons

Recommended age 6 months to 2.5 years
Max 8 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes

The State Swim Waterbabies program (sometimes referred to as water familiarisation or baby swimming lessons) is all about your baby learning to be comfortable in water. It’s designed to build confidence and learn water safety. 

These classes are a great way to familiarise your baby with the water before learning to swim. They also help to develop motor skills, introduce exercise into your baby’s routine and they’re a great way for both you and baby to make new friends.

We offer two classes; Waterbabies 1 for babies aged 6 months to 18 months and Waterbabies 2 for ages 19 months to 30 months. If your child is older than 2.5 years be sure to have a look at our Kindergarten swimming lesson program.
