  3. Gross and fine motor skills are strengthened.
  4. Coordination and balance are enhanced.
  5. A research study through Griffith University shows positive foundations in math and language and attributes this to swimming lessons for children under 6 years of age.
  6. Safety is paramount and skills are taught throughout the lessons, educating parents to help keep children safe in and around the water.
  7. Social skills and self esteem are developed through interaction with other children and positive encouragement from parents.
  8. Your child will develop a trusting relationship with you
  9. As your child grows, they will learn to obey instructions – we teach children to enter the water only when instructed to do so and we also teach them the importance of taking turns.
