At Little Splashes, we provide the personal touch where each child is seen as an individual and guided on their own aquatic journey with reference to their developmental milestones. Little Splashes' program structure demonstrates this by grouping infants & toddlers according to their physical, psychological, social and emotional milestones rather than on a wide age scale. Through water play, gradual skill-building practice, milestone-paced learning and combined with social interaction, we strongly believe that these provide a holistic enrichment in each child that swims with us at Little Splashes. For infants as new as 3 months old to toddlers aged 36 months old, classes are accompanied and assisted by a parent. Most importantly, we strive to promote interactions between parent & child, and nurture an early bond through water play and safety.

Adult & Other Programmes
Adult Learn to Swim
There is no age limit to learning!
Most adult beginner students who want to learn swimming are usually those who would like to include themselves in other water sports or activities that require water safety and basic swimming, such as:
Simply to join other adults to fun beach or pool parties together, those who feel left out at such occasions!
Our Adult Learn-To-Swim program is customised and catered to each individual’s needs – Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced. Each class is conducted in a small group ratio for better attention and clarification for every individual.
What is covered?
Only the basic styles are taught:
Our teachers will assess and break down the class to teach each style according to student’s confidence and progress. Our approach is focused on being water confident first, to promote water safety, followed by stroke technique & correction.
If students want to learn other techniques such as treading water, butterfly style or backstroke, these are considered as Intermediate or Advanced progression from the Beginner Program.
Adult group classes are held at both our pools in Singapore. Please note that our classes are held on weekdays, as late evening classes, subjected to demand, ratio and availability. Open to public, above 16 years old
Since 2017, Little Splashes has been working with 1Aquayogaschool to offer Aqua Yoga at Little Splashes. 1Aquayogaschool is the first traditional yoga school to start Aqua Yoga in Singapore. Linda Loo, the founder and lead trainer of 1Aquayogaschool, is a Living Foods Specialist, Hatta Kundalini Yoga & the main Aqua Yoga Teacher in Little Splashes Aquatics.
What is Aqua Yoga?
It is simply bringing Yoga practice into water. Now in our HEATED pool, there is an added benefit of practicing IN warm water, where static and dynamic low-impact aqua yoga poses relaxes and tones the body at the same time. The hydrostatic pressure of the water nurtures joints and promote healing, and together with synchronisation of breath, muscles & tissues can recover faster.
Aqua Yoga classes are held at both our venues in Singapore. Please note that our classes are held as late evening classes, subjected to demand, ratio and availability. Open to public, above 16 years old.
So let us introduce you to a new way to enjoy our HEATED boutique pool! No yoga mat or experience required, just jump in the pool with Linda Loo, an Instructor from 1Aquayogaschool - a holistic yoga practice that she has been teaching for the past 8 years, as well as authored two books on!
