Meet the DIRECTORS
Learning to swim is an essential skill for all children, especially in Australia.
Some of our best memories as a family revolve around North Queensland’s aquatic wonderland, paddle-boarding our islands, swimming our beaches and creeks, and snorkeling our reefs.
We created Welcome to Water to help give your child the best possible start on their swimming journey, so you too can make swimming a part of your life.
We believe in the magical benefits of having a happy relationship with water as an infant. Your baby will be safer, healthier and smarter! It is every parents job to maintain and grow the newborn’s natural affinity with the water.
Congratulations for making a start on that commitment.
Swimming kids are happy kids, and happy kids make happy parents.
