BABY STARFISH SWIMMING CLASSES

Baby Starfish Swimming Lessons

You may be wondering how young can babies start swimming lessons, and how expensive they are, and the answer may surprise you. Just Swimming is very proud to offer a fantastic community service to parents with babies from 4 – 6 months of age, all for free! Here at Just Swimming Nunawading, we offer free infant swimming classes. Baby swimming lessons in Melbourne that come at no cost? That’s right!

Did you know that your baby starts swimming in utero? Our free infant swim lessons, known as the Baby Starfish Program, are designed to capture the natural inborn reflexes that your baby has when they arrive in the world. During these infant swim classes, we harness these skills to help your baby develop a love of water from a young age. While this program offers swimming classes for babies, it is also designed to help parents learn how to get in and out of water safely with your baby, how to hold your baby securely in water and to provide water safety awareness for the whole family. This 6-week program has ready-prepared lesson content, including water safety, water play, and the commencement of a learn to swim journey.

We provide the same nurturing, highly qualified and experienced teacher each week, so the Baby Starfish Program has been designed to establish a foundation to support your infant baby’s learn to swim journey, and we do not submerge babies at any stage during these lessons.

Our baby swimming lesson program is held in our warm water pool and operates year-round with new programs commencing every six weeks during school terms.

      FAQ

      The Free Baby Starfish program is a swimming course offered for infants between the ages of 4 to 6 months. The program focuses on familiarising infants with water and enhancing their innate reflexes. Parents are also educated on the critical aspects of water safety. The lessons are conducted by the same qualified teacher each week and also includes an introduction to CPR skills.

      The program is structured to run over a span of 6 weeks. This duration is designed to provide ample time for infants to get accustomed to the water and for parents to understand the basics of water safety and swimming. The six-week time frame allows for a gradual build-up of skills and confidence, both for the infants and their parents.

      Yes, the program is designed with the intent of involving parents in the swimming classes. One of the key objectives is to enhance the parent-child bond through shared water activities. Parental participation is not just encouraged but is a fundamental component of the program.

      Just Swimming can accommodate parent or mothers’ groups by offering them group swimming classes, as long as the children in the group are of similar age and skill level. To inquire about the availability of group bookings, you can reach out to our Swim School Coordinators, Sam and Robyn.

      Infants can start swimming lessons as young as 4 to 6 months. Introducing your child to water at this early age can be beneficial for developing motor skills and water familiarity. However, the appropriate age may vary depending on individual circumstances and expert recommendations.

      The Free Baby Starfish program is tailored for infants starting at 4 months of age, implying that 3 months may be slightly too young for this specific program. It’s crucial to consult with healthcare providers like paediatricians for personalised advice on when it’s safe for an infant to start swimming, as recommendations can vary based on the child’s health and development.
