The Splash framework encourages a young child’s increasingly independent and guided discovery of the aquatic environment to develop water confidence, specifically aimed at children aged 3+. 


Our Splash classes are delivered with a teacher in the water teaching up to 4 children. There are 6 levels of progression in Splash, with aquatic skills progressively developing throughout each level, with the child being increasingly independent in the water. Children will learn through guided discovery of the aquatic environment to develop water confidence.
