Does a potty trained child still need swim diapers?
Snugly fit swim diaper (Reusable and non-adjustable type).
Swimming is an activity that utilises multiple muscles while holding their breath underwater. In the process of swimming and kicking, a child (usually of older age) may not have proper control over all of them simultaneously. Therefore, to prevent mishaps, we strongly encourage all children of age 5 and below to wear a snugly fitted swim diaper. Failure to do so may result in fines imposed for cleaning and evacuation.
What do I need to bring for the lessons?
1) Baby swimwear ( No wet-suit required, the pool is heated)
2) Snugly fit swim diaper (reusable and non-adjustable type)
3) Parent tight-fitting swimsuit (No baggy swim shorts or beachwear)
4) Baby’s favourite waterproof toys (if any)
7) A clean set of clothing
8) Baby’s food and drinks (Babies tend to be hungry after lessons)
1) Children 5 years and below will be required to wear snugly fitting swimwear (Reusable and non-adjustable Type).
2) Single-use disposable or adjustable swim diapers aren’t allowed as they are prone to leakage, this is what we at Happy Fish have observed in many cases.

How do you keep the pool clean?
We utilise a combination of salt chlorinator, and UV to disinfect our pools throughout the day. In addition to manually and regularly cleaning of filters, we also deploy cleaning robots to maintain the overall cleanliness of the pool every day.
Besides that, we have to submit the water to NEA for Sample Test. This monthly sampling programme is to ensure that the water quality meets the physical, chemical and bacteriological standards of NEA regulations.
Where are your classes held at?
We conduct our baby and toddler classes at the following indoor heated swimming pool.
- 1 Pasir Ris Close (Wild Wild Wet)
- 750 Chai Chee Road (Viva Business Park)
- 2 Jurong Gateway Road (Opposite IMM)
- 100 Turf Club Road @ Horsecity (Near to Sixth Ave MRT)
- 8 Duke’s Road (Near to Botanic Garden MRT)
How early should I eat before the lesson?
It is recommended to eat about an hour before the lesson so that proper digestion can take place. This will also enable the food not to affect your baby swimming performance.
Are googles required?
They are preferable if you are not comfortable with opening your eyes in the water.
Otherwise, the lack of googles is fine.
Why 30 minutes lesson for infant and toddler?
Little ones tend to have a much shorter attention span because everything around is so new to them, and there is a possibility of overstimulation of their senses. When this happens, not only do they stop learning, but it may also result in them being emotional or cranky (which is actually detrimental to learning). Based on our experience, 30 mins is a soft spot where we can achieve good progress in the class, while still avoiding the class being too long for them.
