Children of all ages love water. Even young babies, who have not yet learned to crawl, may move independently in a pool. Group baby and toddler swimming classes are a great way to socialise, build confidence and teach basic water safety skills. Parents should of course be extra vigilant around water, even during bathing, no matter what age. If you feel that your child would enjoy the bonding, exercise, and fun of a baby and toddler swim class, here are some schools that offer them specifically for infants.

Generally, sessions are 30-minute group classes and a parent or caregiver is expected to accompany the child until at least 3 years of age, unless indicated otherwise. Some schools may offer classes for older children. If you’re looking for swimming at a baby spa, click here.

Going to the dentist can be daunting for anyone, what more a child. Visits to the dentist should be done every six months, from the time a child shows signs of having teeth. Besides overall good dental hygiene, it is also important for a child to understand the importance of visiting a dentist regularly from a young age. Finding dentists is relatively easy. However, locating a child-friendly dentist may prove more challenging.

We have updated our list of child-friendly dentists to include paediatric dentists!
