THERE is no such thing as being too young to learn how to swim, according to mother-of-two and swim instructor Claire Minchin.
After working in the industry for more than two decades, Ms Minchin said she saw first-hand the difficulty parents like herself faced at busy local swimming facilities.
Noticing a growing demand for a swim program targeted at infants, Minchin has opened a new facility in O’Connor to help parents teach their babies how to survive the water.
“Swimming was a great way for me to get out, be active, bond with my new baby and I met other mums and babies while learning about and encouraging my child’s development,” she said.
“We want to make a difference and contribute to our local community, so we want to provide CPR courses for our parents and run water safety sessions at our local schools and childcare centres.”
