Baby Learn to Swim Schools in Australia

Baby swimming lessons are an amazing opportunity for you and your baby to spend quality bonding time together in a calm, relaxing environment. Our swim school pools are all gently heated to an optimal temperature which means you don’t need to worry about keeping your baby warm in the water. Plus, you can focus on their development and that skin to skin contact which is crucial in developing strong bonds.

Babies are stimulated by the warm water in the same way that being in the womb stimulated feelings of safety and comfort, and all adults can recognise that being in warm water is definitely relaxing! Baby swim schools create the perfect environment for parent and baby to be in, escaping the hustle and bustle of adult life to just focus on your baby.

Benefits of Enrolling Into Baby Swimming Lessons?

Introducing your baby to the water is a great opportunity for you and your baby to spend some quality time with each other and develop an even stronger bond. Being in the water helps support your baby’s movements, just like hydrotherapy helps adult recover from accidents. It can help babies as they develop those muscle groups for the first time!

Develop Early Motor Skills

A lot of babies will naturally respond with paddling motions when they are introduced to the water. These movements help your baby to build their muscles up so that when it’s time to take those first steps they’ll have all the physical infrastructure they need to be successful. Baby swimming lessons can also help them improve their motor functions and coordination, especially as your baby makes crossover movements with their limbs. These crossover movements are supportive for brain development as critical pathways start developing. The buoyancy of the water in the pool allows your baby to make motions that they wouldn’t be able to achieve on the floor which means they can develop those muscle groups sooner.

Improve Early Cardiovascular Health

The exercise your baby gets from being in the water also prompts the development of a healthy cardiovascular system, strong lungs and a healthy heart. We know that every parent can recognise the amazing abilities of their baby but wait until you see what they can achieve in the water! This makes an easy transition into toddler swimming lessons and our kids swimming lessons & programs
