Baby / Toddler & Parent Swimming Lessons

Our parent and baby swimming lessons are for children from birth to 3.5 years of age. One parent or guardian is required per baby/toddler for the lesson. Parents/guardians get into the water with their baby/toddler and are fully supported and guided by the highly-experienced swimming teacher. Lessons are informative, well-organised and engaging and the babies and toddlers love to splash about, watch other babies and toddlers and really have fun and learn from the experience.  At 30 minutes per lesson, toddler and baby swimming lessons are designed to work with the child’s attention span and energy levels.

Our daughter has been taking lessons the parent and toddler group for the past 2.5 years, since she was 6 months old. She loves the lessons, she has gotten so comfortable and confident in the water. The lessons are a perfect mix of fun activities interlaced with the learning of key water skills. The pace of the lessons is excellent while new and more challenging aspects are introduced at appropriate stages. We are very happy with the classes and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Highly recommend Diana's Swim Academy lessons- so much fun for baby and parents, Diana is a super teacher she really engages with the babies and makes everyone feel comfortable in the water. We've been going since our baby was 12 weeks and over a year later it's still our favourite activity!

We've been taking our two year old son Dante to Diana's Swim Academy since he was a baby, and it's helped him develop a love for being in a pool. On holidays, he wants to spend all his time in the swimming pool, and his confidence in the water often surprises other parents with children of a similar age. Our weekly trip to see Diana continues to be one of the highlights of Dante's early years.
