Beach safety fun for the whole family!

Learning through play for kids and their 'big person'

The funnest way to learn beach safety is through Beach Kidz, a programme created for preschoolers aged 2, 3 and 4 years old and their caregivers.

Filled with fun land-based and water-based activities that promote fundamental skills, water safety and confidence, social skills and more, it’s the highlight of our kids’ weeks and a key step to safer beach trips.

Awesome programme for beach confidence and beach water safety! The best part is it’s lots of fun for both kids and parents. My daughter started Beach Kidz aged two and followed the programme through for three summers till she was five. We really saw a great progression in her water skills and confidence. She learned so much at Beach Kidz while having fun and making friends. Ange and Hayley are great teachers, and everyone has a laugh and enjoys the beach while learning valuable skills. Highly recommend!

My little Beach Kid has been in the program since he was two and its been the highlight of our Thursdays ever since. Thank you Ange and Hayley for providing a fantastic and fun platform for beach awareness and the mini Iron Man!

Great programme to get kids (and busy mums) out there on the beach enjoying our paradise and learning stuff too! Thanks Ange

Beachkidz is and has been such a great experience for my little boy! The water activities has not only made him more confident in the water but has made him listen to instructions around the water. Ange is great with the kids and we will absolutely be doing this next year!
