Our Classes

At Aquabubs our swimming program starts with an introduction to the aquatic environment and progresses the student through a range of activities and skills, including water familiarisation, water safety education, survival skills and eventually stroke development.

This 20 minute class for very young babies is the perfect transition from womb to pool. The gentle, rhythmic movements of the class facilities the integration of balance in water and on land and provides a intimate bonding experience for both parent and child. 

Ducklings

Babies in this age group are learning how to sit and stand on land and thus in the water they prefer to be in a more upright position. When supported, they will use their arms and legs to move through the water. Towards the later part of this stage, the infants may be able to anticipate some sequences and may begin to learn simple cues in order to prepare for submersion. These experiences should be positive for them and only when they are ready should brief periods of submersion be initiated.

The independence and drive to explore at this age group puts these toddlers at risk. Statistics show that this age group has the highest incidence of drowning. In the water, these toddlers show improved coordination and many are able to use their arms and legs for propulsion with assistance. Increased mobility and independence at this age can permit them to paddle short distances from teacher to parents or to the wall.

Guppies

13-24 months

Balance, strength and coordination at this age group are greatly increased. In the water, toddlers work towards breath control, buoyancy and arm and leg movements. They may probably be able to propel themselves for short distances in the water. A more advanced toddler may be able to lift his head above the water to take a breath.

Legs and arms become longer in proportion to the rest of the body. This lowers their centre of gravity and improves their stability on land. In the water, preschoolers with greater water experience show a more horizontal body position and can extend their arms and legs better for flutter kick and overarm action.

At this age, the fine motor skills are developing rapidly and children will be able to combine the various skills to swim the 4 strokes with  good technique. We will be working on refinining the technique for freestyle and back stroke and breaststroke and butterfly will be introduced.​ A child who has had swim lessons from baby will be able to swim the 4 strokes with good technique by the time they are 7.
