Swimming Lessons Preschool and Waterbabies

Swimming is a life skill that all children in New Zealand need to learn to be safer around the water.

We believe that introducing children to water at a young age is a great way to build their enjoyment and confidence in and around water. Water babies classes we have a maximum of 6 children in each group. For our preschool levels we have two children in each class for 15 minutes. We have a great team of teachers here who pride themselves on their ability to relate to all children and their standard of teaching.
