Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup for Babies

Our Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup is for babies 6 months and under. It is a non-structured session designed to cater for infant and preschool participants attending with their parents/guardians or appropriate adults carers.
 
We understand that the thought of your baby swimming can be a slightly daunting experience when trying it for the first time. For the most part there is nothing to worry about as infants can start swimming from birth.

Babies often love to splish and splash, they enjoy getting wet and playing in the water. Playing in the water is an opportunity for your baby to become familiar in the water and to explore.

Early Childhood Development

Did you know that when babies repeat an action over and over, they are starting to master a new skill? It is working towards strengthening their neural pathways.

How the Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup Works

Aqua playgroup is aimed at familiarising babies with water.

Parents are in the water supporting their child, whilst a qualified swim teacher guides the group through relaxed, fun activities.
 
Sessions are held weekly and involve a 30-minute routine consisting of holds, floating, pre-conditioning, submersion and water safety.

Aqua Playgroup FAQs Expand all

What are the Aqua Playgroup requirements?

Families are to be involved in a gentle introduction for the new baby into water in a safe and welcoming environment.

Parents should have a level of understanding of water safety and skills they can introduce to their child. We are able to provide further aquatic education with mainstream classes to parents/guardians.

What are the benefits of Aqua Playgroup?

We often spend less quality time than we would like with our kids. Unfortunately, it is an effect of being so busy with work and other lifestyle factors. Spending time with your child in the pool means they have your undivided attention for the duration of the class.

Other benefits for your child include:

  • Building water confidence early
  • Improving coordination and balance
  • Helps to build muscles
  • Provides quality bonding time
  • Water play can improve their sleeping pattern
  • Can improve a child’s appetite
