Little Heroes’ BUBSthrive is a progressive submersion based program for infants under 3yrs. A strong focus on recovery encourages practical risk assessment and safety skills for students whilst learning to love the water.

A core tenet of BUBSthrive is relaxation for both baby and parent. This starts with using specific holds that will create trust in the water tension that we hold transfers onto baby. We then start with breath control, which extends to successful submersions, recovery and safety skills. Our focus on water safety and awareness is done through play, exploration and practical situations.

Starting infants at 4-months old, BUBSthrive provides a natural and organic pathway, readying students for their transition to independent classes around 3 years of age.

As water safety ambassadors, Little Heroes’ BUBSthrive also supports Swim Australia’s SwimSAFER initiatives by educating parents in the ‘layers of protection’ to place around infants to reduce drowning incidences amongst under 5’s.

Created by LHSA Co-Founder and 2-time Austswim Teacher of Infants award winner, Tracey Ayton, BUBSthrive is not only the best start you can give your child to love the water but encourages you to be an informed and active part of the process.
