FREE 'SPLASH START' CLASSES
(Wilsonton Pool Only)
The DLSA Infant and Toddler Program focuses on the importance of water safety and awareness. From the age of 3 months to 6 months we offer our FREE Splash Start (SS) Classes. CLICK HERE to take advantage of our FREE Splash Start Classes. Our Splash Start classes will gently introduce your baby to the aquatic environment. All Splash Start classes are free if the infant is started at 3 months of age.
Through songs and play, your baby will begin to learn some basic water awareness skills. Our Splash Start program also has a high focus on Water Safety Education. Following on from our Splash Start classes, our infants and toddlers begin to learn the reflex action. The reflex action is a series of skills such as water orientation, breathe control, floatation skills and propulsion skills.
Lessons are based around songs and games.
The DLSA Infant and Toddler Program utilises a unique 'Circuit Program' to keep the classes interesting while your child continues to practice the reflex action skills.
The program is conducted in the hydrotherapy pool which is heated to 33 degrees (Wilsonton) year round.
The program is structured according to individual skill level, as well as age based parameters.
Through repetition, your child will develop and progress to the early skills required for Learn to Swim Programs.
