A SANDRINGHAM swimming pool is offering free classes for infants to help them get used to being in the water.
The free Splash Time program is running at Sandringham Family Leisure Centre. Classes, for infants aged up to four months, are run by two qualified swim teachers.
The swimming centre says “with mum or dad in the water with bub and guided by two fully qualified swim instructors, Splash Time is an educational program structured around developing parental aquatic skills and building experience in handling a baby in water.”
“Parents are given direction on how to gradually expose their baby to water for the first time, in a controlled environment and at their own pace. Baby will feel safe and fully supported in the water as the three foundation holds including front hold, side and back hold are each demonstrated and practiced during the session. For parents, this knowledge instils confidence and makes baby feel more assured in and around water.”
