When are classes?
The best time available for pre - school lessons are weekday mornings as the pool is quieter. Some families are unable to attend at these times so classes are also available on weekends and after school but the pool is much busier as school age children also attend. Weekday mornings the pool is set up as a playground for the children. At this age children learn best through play. Having the toys and equipment in the pool engages the children and encourages cooperation.
Occasionally a preschooler will be booked with older children to make it easier for that family to fit in swimming around work commitments and other family members. As our teachers assess their students individual learning needs and target these needs, having a younger child learn with older children is not an issue although not ideal.
A maximum of four children per class. Small class sizes encourage natural intuitive learning and allow individual tuition. This is not a group lesson. Experienced and well trained instructors will change the lesson focus according to your child's needs.
Obviously to teach your child swimming skills. Just as important is developing the skills, knowledge and habits so your child will be safer both in and around water.
Equally important is our flexible teaching approach will help develop a child's lifelong perception of learning and challenge as fun.
