SWIM PROGRAMS

Infants 4mths to Toddler 4yrs

Children in these classes swim with a parent or care giver until the instructor decides they are ready to progress to a group kinder class. This decision is based on cognitive, social and motor development. The role of the support person is extremely important at this age. You are there to enhance confidence, provide security and spend quality time with your infant orpre-schooler in a relaxed  warm comfortable atmosphere

Your child will gradually attain aquatic skills and confidence through play , trust and nuturing .
Our star fish programs are full of a range of fun filled activities, games and songs for each stage of development.

KINDER 4YRs TO 5yrs

Kinder kids are full of energy and life, thus so should be their instructor. Classes for this age group aim to provide your children with a safe, trustworthy and fun environment where they can progress at their own rate. Our low teacher: student ratio ensures each child‘s individual needs are catered for. You can expect your child whilst in this stage of development to start swimming horizontally, begin to use a flutter kick and over arm action and gain a stronger understanding of water safety principals.  

There are 3 levels to this stage

All children at Infinity are assessed according to ability not their age. The ages given are just a guide, all kids progress at different rates and this should be respected at all times.

Pushing a child too far when they are not ready could result in a negative experience for your child. Gaining the Childs trust at this age is of utmost importance.
