We are the Survival Specialists! Your precious little one deserves the best... so don't settle for anything less!

 

Choose the best swim school for your child - their life may one day depend on the choice you make!  

Aquatic Kidz Swim School offers a unique swim program primarily focusing on survival skills that is not offered at any other swim school within the Moreton Bay Shire.  We therefore guarantee that no other swim program will prepare your baby or child for the "unexpected" as our program does!  This proven program for babies, toddlers and young children has saved many lives - please click on our success stories on the right to read how our program helped save baby Miller and Lilly.

Programs and the methodology used to teach babies, toddlers and young children vary greatly between swim schools.  Parents are usually unaware that each swim school develops their own swim programs and that the majority of infant swimming programs are just water familiarisation, where the infant learns to love the water but doesn't learn the combination of skills required to independently save themself if they fall into a body of water.  Hence the reason why ​parents must do their research and not just go to the closest swim school because it's more convenient! 

Our Minke program is designed to give infants, toddlers and young children the necessary skills to prepare them for the "unexpected" - an accidental fall into a body of water!  Our unique accelerated learning programs result in quicker progress, therefore children are safer in and around water at a much earlier age compared to most traditional swim programs. 

Our babies and toddlers are guaranteed to learn all the skills required to  prepare them for the "unexpected".

Survival is first and foremost if we are to prevent accidental drowning in children.

Drowning is preventable however it is still the number one cause of accidental death in children under the age of five in Australia.  For every drowning there are many more "near drownings", leaving children with permanent brain damage.

Our proven programs and unique methodology have saved many children's lives - toddlers CAN save themselves in an aquatic emergency (look at our toddler in the video - above right).

Our Master Instructors have over 49 years experience and are experts in teaching survival skills to babies, toddlers and young children.

Our methodology and programs do work!

Our Minke program is a "skill based" progressive program - participants will become more advanced in their SURVIVAL (not just "safety") skills the longer they remain in the program.  Hence the reason why we advocate infants MUST complete the full Minke program to gain maximum benefit  from the program. 

Accidental submersions can happen at any time, even to very young babies - long before they are crawling or walking and able to independently access a body of water themselves.  Click on the boxes to read how our Minke program helped save 5 ½ month old Miller and 2 year old Lilly. 

We commence lessons for babies from 4 WEEKS of age.  The sooner a baby commences lessons, the safer they will be.  Enrolling your baby/toddler into our Minke program from a very young age will give them the best chance of survival should the unthinkable ever occur. 

With only three babies per class, our vacancies are limited so please give us a call or book online.

What is the best age to start my baby's swimming lessons?

The younger the better!  The sooner a child commences lessons, the safer they will be.

Babies as young as 4 WEEKS can commence lessons at Aquatic Kidz Swim School.  With over 49 years teaching experience, our Master Instructors have the knowledge and expertise required to teach very young babies and will ensure the best of care is taken of your precious little one throughout the lessons. 

Our progressive "skill based" Minke program is ​NOT​ a water familiarisation class, hence infants and toddlers will become proficient in a variety of swimming and survival skills as they advance through the program.

Our creative teaching methods ensure the learning experience is fun and stimulating for the child.

Do your research when choosing a swim school for your precious litle one!

Programs vary greatly between swim schools, therefore parents must do their research when determining where to enrol their child for swimming lessons.

Check the program and methodology used - a holistic program will ensure infants and young children are happy and relaxed in their lessons and forceful methods are not used as a means to obtain progress from the child.   We DO NOT "dunk" or forcefully submerge babies or toddlers - this is not inkeeping with our philosophy.  Our philosophy is "don't do to your child what you wouldn't want done to yourself!"

A private swim school will provide a quiet relaxed environment for your child to learn to swim without the loud noise and distractions often associated with large aquatic centres.

Our small classes of three babies per class guarantee your child maximum practice time throughout the lesson.

An enclosed heated pool will provide an optimum learning environment for your child.

Benefits of infant swimming

In the first 12 months of life a baby grows at an astonishing rate, not only physically but their intellectual development as well.  
A young baby is like a sponge – taking in, absorbing and learning from all life’s experiences. 

Enrolling your baby in swimming lessons will enhance their overall development throughout this period of rapid growth.

• A baby’s brain grows and develops through stimulation therefore swimming lessons are an ideal activity for a very young baby, not to mention they may save your child's life one day!

• Infant lessons provide a good physical workout as the baby propels against the gentle resistance of the water and parents usually find their baby tends to sleep better on swim days.

• Exercise leads to a healthy immune system therefore babies who attend swim lessons usually tend not to get sick as often as their non-swimming peers.

Bookings are taken at any time throughout the year and block lessons are available throughout school holidays. Contact us today to book your lessons!
