The water confidence program is designed for children aged 12 months to 3 years.
This program allows toddlers to become more aware and confident in the aquatic environment. The children will be introduced to the basic water safety skills, which include introductory breathing techniques (blowing bubbles), dog paddle, floating and basic diving entry (rockets). For this to be achieved, both instructor and parents are involved in the exciting activities from within the pool. These classes are held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings and Friday afternoons for a duration of 30 minutes and are held at 24 White Ave.
Total cost of this program for 9 weeks is $95.
