Aqua-Play

Aqua-Play

**Starting Back on Tuesday the 15th of April**

Aqua Play is a fun and playful learning program for toddlers, aged 1-5 years (with an early childhood instructor) around shallow water.

Aqua Play runs two mornings a week around the toddler pool area with lots of exciting and fun things for kiddies to play with.

The aim of the program is for young children (with their parent) to become familiar and more water confident through play based learning in a safe environment. A water safety component is also introduced during the coordinated session, while children are having fun with water toys and games with other children.

When: Tuesday’s and Thursday’s – 10am-12pm

Bookings not required.

Where:  (Toddler Pool) Clarence Aquatic Centre YMCA

Cost: $5.50 per child
