Infants are encouraged to begin at 6 months where they will begin water play and progress into essential life saving skills whilst maintaining emphasis on being confident in the water at all times. Toddlers will remain with their parents in lessons typically until 3 years and are also able to stand and be independently in the 0.80m program pool.
