As the weather begins to warm up, Southern Highland pools will be in session and busy again.
Before the kids enjoy some aquatic fun, water safety is a must for any child not familiar.
Moss Vale War Memorial Aquatic Centre's Deb Montgomery couldn't express how important water safety is to a child.
"Swimming lessons are so important to a child's overall education," Ms Montgomery said.
"It's also great fitness. It's not just water safety and awareness, but also a great way to keep the kids fit."
The earlier children get into the pool, the quicker they learn and grow confidence in the water.
"Kids can start to learn at four months old," Ms Montgomery said.
"At that age they're in the pool with the parent being encouraged and developing confidence in the water with games. They learn floating and when a little older we show them how to move across to the side of the pool to protect themselves by pulling themselves out of the water.
"It's all very basic stuff, but in a fun and friendly environment."
Water safety isn't just children. Adults unfamiliar or needing a brush up with aquatics education can participate.
"We have lessons for adolescence and adults here as well," Ms Montgomery said.
"We have a man here in his 70s coming to learn. It really is for all ages."
It's not just in the warmer weather that kids should be learning and practicing their teachings. Getting in the water as much as possible will continue their progression.
"Our swimming lessons run 50 weeks of the year," Ms Montgomery said.
"We only have two weeks off over Christmas and New Year period. It's important that you keep the continuity of swimming lessons with the kids.
"They forget very quickly."
Wingecarribee Shire Council also offer a Learn to Swim program at Bowral and Mittagong Swimming Centres. Term four kicks off on 30 October at Mittagong or 18 November at Bowral.
