Water Confidence - 3 months to 2.5 years

Waterbabies classes are a great introduction to swimming with specially adapted games, songs and routines to build water confidence. These classes also encourage children to become comfortable submerging and floating on their backs. Even though the classes are lots of fun, every lesson is teaching children to be safer in, on, under and around water. Click here for more information on Carlile’s Water Confidence program.
