Level Two of the Swim School for Babies program.

There are three levels in our Swim School for Babies

The first two involve both you and your child. The third is a move into independent lessons – where they learn to swim without you in the pool. This is the second of the sessions with you and your baby.

In Seahorse, your child will learn important skills to:

  • Kick on their front without help
  • Improve their kicks and arm action
  • Roll from front onto back
  • Float for longer on their back without help
  • Follow directions from instructor
  • Interact with others in the water
  • Stay safe by roll from front to back and swim back to edge after practicing falling in

Once your child has mastered these skills, they move into Squids.

Fun Facts about Seahorse

Seahorses are tiny fish that are named for the shape of their head, which looks like the head of a tiny horse.

In SA, you can find them clinging to drifting or anchored seaweed around Venus Bay and Denial Bay on the Eyre Peninsula. They can also be found along the Great Australian Bight.

To move forward in the water, seahorses use their dorsal fin (back fin). To move up and down they adjust the volume of air in a tiny pocket inside their body – they are one of the slowest swimmers in the ocean.
