Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup

Our Splish Splash Aqua Playgroup is for babies aged 3-6 months old. It is a non-structured session designed to cater for infantsattending with their parents/guardians or appropriate adult 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, and they enjoy getting wet while playing in the water. Playing in the water is an opportunity for your baby to become familiar in the water and to explore.

Getting ready for Splish Splash

You can get your baby prepared for swimming before you even get to the swimming pool. You can use bath time at home to get your baby used to the feeling of splashing and being immersed in water.

Swimming is an essential and life-saving skill that your children will have for life.

What's next after Splish Splash?

Enrol your swimmer into our GOswim learn to swim program, where they will join the Starfish Level, catering to infants aged 6-12 months. This is a wonderful way to continue to introduce them to the water, develop their swimming skills, water safety, working towards submersions and confidence from a young age.

How Splish Splash Works

Splish Splash 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 twice a week and involve a 30-minute routine consisting of holds, floating, pre-conditioning, and water safety.

What are the benefits for my child?

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
