Programs | Just Like Fish Swim School



Our program is divided into three different stages that is in line with children’s physical and mental development. These guideline are devised to give parents a framework for a child’s progression and starting point but it should be stressed that these will vary depending on each individual child.


Infant Aquatics
3 Months and Above

Our infant aquatics program is designed to provide a versatile learning and play environment.

Research shows that children who partake in water activities from a very young age benefit through improved water skills and physical development, enhanced interaction, greater independence at an earlier age and an ability to accept new situations more readily. However the most important result is that your child will develop survival and awareness skills in and around aquatic environments.

Our program will prepare your infant/toddler physically, psychologically and socially for more structured swimming lessons later in life. It is conducted at three levels: 

All classes are 30 minute in duration and a parent is required in the water for all levels.
