Splish Splash Babies
Our Wonder classes are for babies 6 months and under. They are non-structured sessions designed to cater for infant and preschool participants attending with their parents/guardians or appropriate adults carers.
We understand that the thought of your baby swimming can be a slightly daunting experience when trying it for the first time. For the most part there is nothing to worry about as infants can start swimming from birth.
Babies often love to splish and splash, they enjoy getting wet and playing in the water. Playing in the water is an opportunity for your baby to become familiar in the water and to explore.
Early Childhood Development
Did you know that when babies repeat an action over and over, they are starting to master a new skill? It is working towards strengthening their neural pathways.
Joining Our Wonder Classes
You can get your baby prepared for swimming before you even get to the swimming pool. You can use bath time at home to get your baby used to the feeling of splashing and being immersed in water.
Swimming is an essential and life-saving skill that your children will have for life! Learn more below or to enquire complete an enquiry form here.

We often spend less quality time than we would like with our kids. Unfortunately, it is an effect of being so busy with work and other lifestyle factors. Spending time with your child in the pool means they have your undivided attention for the duration of the class.
Other benefits for your child include:
- Building water confidence early
- Improving coordination and balance
- Helps to build muscles
- Provides quality bonding time
- Water play can improve their sleeping pattern
- Can improve a child’s appetite
Families are to be involved in a gentle introduction for the new baby into water in a safe and welcoming environment.
Parents should have a level of understanding of water safety and skills they can introduce to their child. We are able to provide further aquatic education with mainstream classes to parents/guardians.
