About our program
Klim Swim has 4 progressive infant aquatic levels to help get your young children comfortable and confident in the water. We show parents how to introduce their baby to the pool in a relaxed and happy atmosphere and cater for ages 6 months, through to 3 years. The program has been designed around your child’s age so that the activities are reflective of the infant’s developmental stage, both physically and cognitively.
All infant classes are 30 minutes in duration, with an 8:1 maximum parent/guardian to instructor ratio. To ensure your child gets the maximum benefit from regular lessons, we ensure the pool is consistently a toasty 32.3 degrees, perfect for learning to swim all year round.
Our instructors hold additional qualifications specialising in infant and preschool aquatics, and are further trained in our program.
Our Infants Levels
Our aim for Infants
Each progressive level has particular skills to work towards achieving, however Klim Swim’s overall aim is to:
Enjoy the lesson in the closeness of familiar arms
·Become gradually more independent and capable in the water
Teach children vital water safety skills such as listening to instructions from parents when around water as well as how to enter and exit from the pool
Learn skills such as breath control (holding and bubbles)
Assisted floatation leading towards independent floatation on front and back
Simple movement through the water
Preparation for accidental immersion, and recovery to the wall
Social and language skills are also enhanced and the bond between baby and adults is strengthened.
