From our Directors...

Learning to swim is an essential skill for all children, especially in Australia.Some of our best memories as a family revolve around North Queensland’s aquatic wonderland, paddle-boarding our islands, swimming our beaches and creeks, and snorkelling our reefs. We created Welcome to Water to help give your child the best possible start on their swimming journey, so you too can make swimming a part of your life. We believe in the magical benefits of having a happy relationship with water as an infant, toddler an preschooler. Your baby will be safer, healthier and smarter! It is every parents job to maintain and grow the newborn’s natural affinity with the water.

Our Core Purpose

Reduce the use of force in learn to swim lessons

We aim to educate swim school owners, teachers and parents on the concept of Aquatic Readiness, to reduce the use force in learn to swim lessons and the associated trauma, forceful methods cause.

Build strong relationships

We aim to help the child create bonds with their parents, their family, the community and the environment in which they live.

Reduce overall drowning deaths

We believe that creating a happy relationship with the water, creates a stronger swimmer earlier, which will reduce drowning deaths.
