Take pleasure in your child’s first aquatic experience in the warm soothing waters of the Cannington Leisureplex leisure pool. Dedicated, experienced staff will gently nurture you and your precious infant through this memorable 30 minute class.
Our water familiarisation classes encourage you to praise, reassure and applaud your baby’s natural curiosity. Through play and song, babies explore the water's buoyancy like an invisible helping hand kicking; floating and submerging.
