The Baby Squids Experience

Our Baby Squids classes specialise in the 0 – 4 year old range, starting with parent and baby swimming lessons, and focusing on building water confidence and safety skills. Our toddler swimming lessons help you work with your child towards independent swimming. Most importantly, we have fun while we are doing it!
