What other parents say about Welcome to Water

Such a great programme, our baby absolutely loves her swimming lessons, even better that the first 5 weeks is free

I personally recommend Welcome To Water swim program for your little one. Staff have many years of qualified experience. You will always feel happy, safe and confident with your baby in the water, if you don't feel this at the start you will, as the teachers will help guide and teach you the correct holds, techniques and strategies for keeping baby happy, safe in the water 😃

Fantastic educational program, very well run and a safer way of introducing babies to water.

- Melinda Hammond
Great experience taking baby in the water for the first time. Gently introducing them to the water & making it fun! Great instructors, we are confident in their knowledge and experience.

Our little boy absolutely loved the welcome to water lessons and even better that they are free of charge! We are now about to start the next round, the staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable.

The free 5 week welcome to water classes were great. It is so much more then just jumping in the pool. The information the team gave me was great, and my baby was very comfortable during the classes. Now my baby and I are so confident in and around water.

- Brooklyn Flett


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 snorkelling 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.

Swimming kids are happy kids, and happy kids make happy parents.
All the best in your swimming life together

Frequently asked questions

What is Welcome to Water?

We educate new and expecting parents on how to provide a force-free introduction to swimming to their infant. This education starts at home, with our free online course teaching the basics of infant swimming and how to get a start on your swimming journey in the bath.

We link parents with 'Welcome to Water Provider' swim schools in their local area, to participate in a free 5 week – no submersion swim programme for 3-6 month olds. We train swimming teachers in our force-free philosophy and provide swim schools with policies and procedures to ensure that all babies receive a Welcome to Water -with love.

Why do you offer this course for free?

We want all children around the world to be introduced to water in a safe and loving manner. We have become aware of the use of force in infant swimming lessons, and want to arm parents with some fundamental knowledge on the learn to swim process so they can recognise if these forceful practices are occurring at their chosen swim school.

What swim school should I choose?

Not all swim schools are the same. Our free online course has a module specifically on this subject. You can be sure that if you choose a Welcome to Water providers swim school, that all teachers will be on board with our no-force approach to the learn to swim process. 

Do I have to buy anything?

Becoming a member is free! Members receive Free online learning, monthly updates with tips tricks and games related to your child's developmental level, and access to our free swimming program at your local 'Welcome to Water Provider' swim school.
Our online learning suite also has available, for purchase, extra modules, to help you supercharge your infant swimming knowledge.
