LEARN TO SWIM

PARENT AND CHILD CLASSES

Our baby and toddler classes run for children aged 6 months to 3 years. These classes are adult accompanied and are focused on the children having fun and enjoying being in the water.

6 -12 months, the children will learn the feel of the water, submersion, basic arm and leg movements and floating. 

12 - 24 months, as the children increase their motor skills and become more confident they will learn to move independently in the water, how to enter and exit the pool safely, as well as strengthening their kicking and arm movements.

24 - 36 months, increasing in strength and confidence, the children are now learning more independence, learning how to return to the side, spending time under water, free floating and having fun.

CHILDRENS LEARN TO SWIM

Suitable for children aged 3 to 4 years and older.

 

Our Learn to Swim curriculum takes the children through all 4 competitive strokes - Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly, as well as teaching them about personal and pool safety.

 

As they progress they will also learn the 2 safety strokes - rescue backstroke and sidestroke, and personal rescue techniques.

After assessing your child’s swimming ability we will start them at the level which best meets their needs. We don’t believe that this will be based on age alone as some children become proficient swimmers at a young age. Each level is designed to allow the child to progress at their own pace with lots of enthusiasm and praise from the teacher.

As your child progresses through each level we will be building up distance and stamina but our main focus will always be on correct technique.

Through continual encouragement we look forward to seeing your child grow from a swimmer doing the basic strokes to a swimmer who is proficient in all the strokes and is learning to do flip turns and dives !!
