Our programme for toddlers, who may be late to swimming, is aimed at teaching your child water confidence, key life-saving skills, a lifelong love of the water and building the first steps towards swimming unaided.
In these sessions your child will benefit from increasing strength, coordination and exercises focused on each individual child, in small groups with DBS checked, fully qualified and experienced teachers.
Underwater swimming is an important part of what we do, but most of what happens in our classes takes place above the water, with loads of emphasis on fun! We use lots of songs and games to ensure your little one loves the time you spend together in the pool. Our toddler lessons cater for all types of behaviours and fears associated with water. We help those who are less confident to enjoy the pleasures of being in the water and we will also teach the more confident ones, important safety skills, so that they learn how to help themselves if ever they come into difficulty in water. So whatever your child’s needs, we can help. Our lessons are fun and enjoyable to everyone.
There are 3 levels your children are encouraged to complete at pre-school: Intermediate, Advanced and Swim School on Discovery Ducklings and Ducklings 1-4 from Learn to Swim England Awards.
At our Swim School level, children add to their confidence and safety skills by learning to take a breath during their swims and achieve swimming for between five and ten metres independently. At Swim School level parents are on poolside as the instructor can teach a small group on their own. Now it is your turn to sit back, relax and watch your child’s abilities in the water!
A Baby Sharks Certificate is awarded at the end of each completed level to celebrate your achievements. We can also provide the equivalent and nationally recognised Swim England Badges and Certificates upon request and for a small charge. Without a doubt these will become family treasures!
