The Aquatots baby program has been developed by infant in aquatic specialists who are passionate about teaching babies to swim and survive at an early age. The program will not only enhance your child’s enjoyment of the aquatic environment but will build on their strength, co-ordination and motor skills.

Our baby programs cater for babies from 6 weeks of age through to 3 years of age. The levels are split by age as there is different motor skills that are required for each of the activities.

The program is engaging for the babies with fun activities that not only teach your baby a skill that may one day save their life, but also build on their over all development.

Studies have shown that children who have an early introduction into an aquatic environment are not only ahead of their peers in vital swimming skills but in physical and brain development as well.

    The Aqua Bubba program is an aquatic development program that has been created using medical professional and aquatic industry specialist input. The program will work on your baby’s strength, co-ordination and motor skills using the benefits of the aquatic environment. For 9 months your baby has been surrounded by amniotic fluid. A warm water environment is very natural to infants. The quicker we can reintroduce your baby to this wonderful aquatic world the more natural it is to them.

    Your baby has been born with the ability to swim and move through the water using reflexes. Our award winning team can show you how to encourage these reflexes in a gentle and nurturing manner that will enhance your baby’s enjoyment of the water and ability to swim at an early age.

    Studies have shown that babies who start their aquatic experience at an early stage will not only learn to swim and survive early in life but are ahead in physical and metal development.

    Give your baby an aquatic start in life and come and experience this beautiful bonding experience in our warm clean facilities
