Baby and toddler classes teach parents to help babies and toddlers relax and be confident in and around water.

These 30 minute classes cater for children aged four months to approximately three years.

Preschool Classes

Preschoolers between three and five years old can learn the fundamentals of independent swimming, safety and survival skills at LLC.

During these 30 minute lessons, students will be instructed in the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive Program stages one to six. Skills cover stroke development, refining freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke, and learning survival strokes and techniques.  

As your child progresses through the stages of the program, the distance of each stroke will increase and new skills will be introduced.
