Mercy Baby Swim is into its 15th year this year. We have experienced continued growth through the years with currently over 350 students in the swim school.
Term 1 swimming will commence at the beginning of February. We still have spaces available for the coming term. We cater for infants to toddlers from 5 months to 3 years of age. These lessons incorporate skills based activities in the form of various games and songs. Some of the skills taught are water confidence, breathing control, arm actions, basic kicking, submersion and safe water entry.
The preschool program is from 3 years to 6 years. This program is an extension of the skills learnt in the baby swim program. Children in this program are placed in ability appropriate classes. In these classes swimmers learn more advanced basic water skills (sculling, treading water, gliding), independent movement on front and back and the commencement of correct stroke technique.
Classes are held 7 days per week and coincide with the school term. All classes are 30 minute duration. If you are interested in enrolling call Sharon, the baby swim co-ordinator, on 9271 9422 to check available times and days.
