The second level of the infant and toddler programme. During this level, swimmers will be encouraged to develop their bubble blowing technique, floating and confidence with help from their parent or caregiver in the water.

23 - 36 months
The third level of the infant and toddler programme. During this level, swimmers will be encouraged to be further independent in the water with the parent or caregiver still in the water with them. Swimmers will be encouraged to further submerge under the water, paddle and jump into the water.
26 - 36 months
Designed for those swimmers who are ready to be more independent in the water but aren’t old enough to go into a Tadpole preschool class. The class is designed for swimmers to be in the water with an instructor in a small class, but with the parent or caregiver in the water helping with corrective practises. Swimmers will be introduced to streamlining, kicking and gliding both assisted and unassisted.
