Magic Moments - Babies and Toddler Programme

Our specialised baby and toddler swim programme caters to the physical, intellectual, developmental and emotional needs of our students.

Through exploration and play, songs and challenges, and safe practices around water we are committed to making sure that every child develops appropriate aquatic skills and are given every opportunity to develop to their fullest.

Our Magic Moments team are dynamic and vibrant, well trained and have real passion for working with parents to help develop safe, competent and confident swimmers. There is a focus on positive interactions between parent and child.

By focussing on the childs level of readiness and well being we are able to take these Magic Moments to a level far beyond the learning of swimming skills.
