Waterbabies. Baby Swimming Lessons and Baby Swim Classes.

Baby swimming lessons are the first step in a lifelong love of the water. You deserve to feel confident your child is learning water confidence and safety skills from experts in a safe, caring and fun environment.

Carlile pioneered toddler and baby swimming lessons, opening Sydney’s first indoor baby teaching pool and have led the industry ever since. While there are lots of songs to sing and games to be played it’s all with a purpose.  Australia’s Griffith University conducted a ground-breaking four-year research study and found that 3 to 5 year olds who attend regular swimming lessons were:

  • 11 months ahead in verbal skills
  • 6 months ahead in mathematic skills
  • 2 months ahead in literacy skills
  • 17 months ahead in story recall
  • 20 months ahead in understanding directions

Carlile Swimming is the number one choice for toddler and baby swimming lessons in Sydney. Waterbabies classes are for kids aged 3 months to 2.5 years with a parent or carer in the water with them. Classes are $23.25 each, paid on a four week cycle in advance (see details here). Family and multi lesson discounts are also available. We look forward to welcoming you to the Carlile Swimming family.

Water Confidence Program

Waterbabies classes are designed to help your little one learn to do the following.

  • Balance, stay buoyant and float in the water.
  • Back float with relaxed breathing.
  • Be comfortable holding their breath.
  • Be comfortable under the water (this is never forced and we’ll gently and safely introduce your child to this activity).

Waterbabies classes are a joy, Carlile’s teachers love them and you will love seeing your little one grow in confidence each week.
