Putting your babies into swimming lessons encourages a love for the water. Our Starfish program enables our babies to gain new skills before advancing to the next level. In addition our program rotates through a 4 week program giving variety and maintaining the children’s interest at the same time as practising the skills that we want them to achieve. Teaching your child to swim from a young age is giving them an important gift for life!
