Importance of baby lessons


The Little Joeys program is designed to teach your child vital water safety awareness skills along with basic swimming skills.  The Little Joeys program encourages exploration of the water, creating trust, building confidence, and relaxed submersions at the child's own pace. It is our goal to assist babies to acquire these skills in a fun, stimulating environment.  Once the infant has mastered these skills we will then transition the child in preparation for the child to swim without their parents in the water for the very first time.

" The swim school caters for a range of ages and abilities. I have one child in the infant program and two children in the learn to swim classes. The infant program is fun and engaging; rhymes are used and I really look forward to this one on one time with my youngest. She loves the water and feels comfortable in the nurturing environment. The older two children also enjoy their lessons and love the way they are challenged to develop their swimming independence."
