Which class is suitable for us?

Dippers > Entry at three months to cruising (approx 12-18 months). Dippers sessions give you the time to bond while we teach your child the basics.

Splashers > Entry after completing Dippers or children walking (approx 12 months to 2 years). Following on from Fippers, Splashers sessions are a great way to grown their water confidence with you right beside them.

Paddlers > Entry after completing Paddlers or children ages 2 to 3 years old. Paddlers build on the fundamentals and prepares them for swimming independantly.
