Toddler & Me (6 months - 2 years)
Our Toddler and Me lessons are the first step to introducing young children to the aquatic environment. The classes focus on water familiarisation through games, songs and structured activities. Children are taught skills such as floatation, kicking, breath control, submerging and body orientation in the water, with particular emphasis on safety around the water.
Toddlers can progress from a beginners class through to an advanced class. Each lesson runs for 30 minutes and a parent or guardian must be in the water with the child during this program.
Pre-School Classes (3 - 4 years)
The Pre-school lessons are designed to develop water confidence and introduce children to the fundamentals of swimming, through water safety skills and technique development. As children become more confident the emphasis moves from water familiarisation to stroke development.
Pre-schoolers can progress through the three levels from beginners to an advanced level. The lessons run for 30 minutes and have a maximum of four children per class.
School Age Classes (5 years and over)
Bayside Aquatics uses the Royal Life Saving Society's National "Swim and Survive" Program. Lessons run for 30 minutes and all levels focus on stroke development, survival and water safety skills. Children progress through a range of levels as follows:
