  • I started my son when he started walking. We go to The Paragon, which is opposite TTP on Smart rd. cheapest I found in the area. The Strathmont centre on Grand Junction rd is meant to be cheap too. Kristie
  • 6 months Paragon, state swim Julia
  • My baby was 6 months(after 6 month vaccinations)-I’m in QLD. Briony
  • I started lessons with my son at 5 1/2 months in a hydro pool so it’s nice and warm. We have done 3 lessons and he loves it! There are some younger babies in our class (4mths) but I wouldn’t start them until they can hold their own head up. Jayne
  • The Paragon on smart rd, Modbury. Way better than stateswim! Not as hot inside either while you watch. Started both mine at 6 months Sim
  • 4 months and loves it! Parafield Gardens have a free prigram from 2-4months it’s been great! Ashlee
  • My son started at 5 months. They can start from as young as a week old. They have spent 9 months living in liquid, so it’s a natural and quite often calming. Just choose a swimming school that has the water warm enough Lauren
  • My elsest started at 8ish months because we had no indoor pools and she was normal in march now as a 3yr old is amazing at swimming. But my baby will be starting at 4 months. As thats when out local swimming school takes them from Laura

    My daughter started when she was 5.5 months old. We went to the Paragon and loved it! I definitely plan on taking her again in term 3/4 (when its a bit warmer – I hate the cold) Goodluck 😉
