2. Then your child will learn the more complex swimming skills such as freestyle and backstroke.
3. Once these strokes have been mastered your child will learn breaststroke and the fun stroke called butterfly.

|When should my baby submerge?|
|Having spent the first nine months of life floating in your tummy, babies under six months are usually very comfortable underwater and can happily submerge. |
Most of your babies early movements are random, a result of primitive reflexes that will help him to survive, over time these primitive reflexes will become integrated with conscious movements. More Info
|What's our specialty?|
We specialize in classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and other little folks.
Classes are fun and developmentally very sound, your child will enjoy learning vital water confidence and safety skills. Skills such as learning to happily submerge, kick legs for propulsion and to develop the ability to jump in and kick back to the side.
Once your child has mastered the basic water safety skills we can then teach the more complex swimming skills such as Freestyle and Backstroke.
|What is 'Babyswim'?|
Babyswim really is very special, but we make the lessons EXTRA SPECIAL by teaching you and your baby to communicate using the baby signs program. Your baby will learn how to communicate with you using signs such as "more", "finish", "wait", "help" plus many more very useful and empowering signs. What a great way to start a lifelong educational journey!
|Patient and caring teachers|
Teachers are chosen for their patient, caring nature. They know what to say and what to do to get the very best from your child. They understand this might be your child's very first educational experience and they're keen to make that experience enjoyable.
All Dipadees teachers undergo extensive training to ensure your child receives the best possible tuition. They work together with you to foster a lifelong love of learning and to build your child's confidence, self-esteem and swimming skills.
Dipadees truly is a place where
Happy little Aussies love to learn!
|Here's why comfort matters|
It is almost impossible to concentrate and learn if you're uncomfortable, shivering and feeling miserable. That is why our pools are heated to a comfortable temperature.
All Dipadees programs are indoors out of the wind and the weather. We like to feel comfortable and we know you do too! Most of all we know that to become a stronger, safer swimmer your child needs year-round time in the water. This is easy to achieve in the comfort of a Dipadees facility
|Your special invitation|
Do you have a little tot aged between 3 months and 3 1/2 years?
Baby and toddler swim classes are great fun but there are some important things you need to know! The more information you have the more likely you and your baby are to enjoy your swim lesson.
That's why we're offering parents with little tots the opportunity to join us for a FREE and very informative baby and toddler learn to swim information evening.
You can join us for this obligation free info evening by emailing Sue at email@example.com to reserve your seat.
Email swim@dipadees for the next info session to be held at the Arana Hills library, Cobbity Crescent Arana Hills.
|It's a very safety conscious program|
Skills and activities in the Dipadees program have been designed to help your child become safer and stronger in the water.
Children in our beginner program learn to enjoy the water and to master basic safety skills, for example, learning how to tread water and to swim safely back to the side if they fall in.
More confident children are taught how to move through the water with ease using correct stroke technique.
