Just Swimming takes enrolments from 4 months of age and caters to all ages and abilities including adults.
Whilst there is no right or wrong time to start learning to swim, commencing learning to swim from a young age will help students progress through levels at an increased pace as they’ve developed water familiarisation early on.
Children who can walk and have not had swimming lessons, are not aware of the dangers that water can pose and have little awareness of depth perception. Starting lessons young also, means that your children are becoming safer around water sooner which is when children are at a high risk of an aquatic related incident taking place.
Just Swimming offers a free 6 week Baby Starfish program. These lessons are for babies from 4 months of age and teach parents specific activities that enhance a child’s in-born natural reflex.
Young babies are not born to have the emotion of fear, therefore commencing lessons before they can weigh up their options, and become a little anxious about the aquatic environment is a great time to start.
