Queensland parents know that teaching their children to swim is a must. Not only is it essential for their safety, but also for social inclusion as they get older. Whether it’s hitting the beach, lakeside family camping spots, or local waterparks, friends and families frequently spend time together bonding over water-based activities.
Ideally, children should be safely introduced to water prior to age 3, as it can take a number of years to develop sufficient skills and confidence to develop. Making sure your child is confident in the water by the time they start school is really important. Most schools offer various swimming programs and events, including swimming carnivals and water-based team sports – these all rely on a basic ability to swim.
Aquatic Achievers will be opening a brand new centre in Wavell Heights in 2019.
The purpose-built learn to swim centre caters for babies through to school-age children, with registrations now open. They are also offering their free “Learn to Live” water safety program to schools and early learning centres across Wavell Heights and surrounding suburbs, teaching children water safety fundamentals in a fun and engaging way outside the pool.
