Making a splash in swimming lessons with your baby is an exciting, enriching experience for everyone involved.
There are heaps of reasons to get your baby into swimming lessons early. Thanks to our amazing sponsor, Manuka Doctor Skincare there are even more! For babies under 6 months, at Northern Arena baby swim lessons are FREE!
Our baby swimming class programme helps babies to become confident in the water. It’s also fantastic fun with games, songs, and entertaining activities that make every moment enjoyable. Each child has an adult partner in the water with them – a parent, family member, or caregiver over the age of 16 years. You will learn to hold, move, and submerge your baby safely.
Northern Arena’s baby pool is nice and warm so that both you and your child remain comfortable throughout your lesson. The water in the baby's pool is treated by ultraviolet light (similar to the way our drinking water is treated) meaning there are extremely low levels of chlorine which is much nicer on newborn sensitive skin.
Babies can start lessons from 2 months of age. To be eligible for this incredible initiative, the baby must be aged 2-6 months old.
All swimming lessons at Northern Arena are taught by highly trained and accomplished swimming instructors in purpose-built swimming pools and are specifically designed to enhance your child’s enjoyment, confidence, development, and safety in and around water.
Babies love the water – there’s no better time to start.
Learn how swimming can enhance your babies life in more ways than one! Plus keep up to date and read all the latest swim school news, tips, tricks and more to help you live the ultimate holistic lifestyle
The facility is brilliant. I had rugged my baby up for our first class thinking that it would be cold afterward but the temperature of the water and surrounding area is always nice and warm.” S. Brockbank
