Levels

Parent and infant lessons can be started once your baby is 4 months old. These are very rewarding lessons for both parent and baby – the coach will teach the parent everything needed to enable the baby to start swimming such as how to submerge the baby in a safe and relaxed way. This is a great introduction to the world of swimming for your child, and will benefit the baby enormously, both physiologically and mentally. Parental assistance is required.

Lessons use a varied routine with plenty of fun activities and equipment designed to instill confidence, and introduce the child to all the basic skills needed to ‘feel at home’ in the aquatic environment. Parents are encouraged to help their child progress gradually, at the child’s own pace, and to develop their aquatic skills to become more independent in the water. Positive reinforcement especially in group activities will instill a love of swimming and a knowledge of basic safety in the pool environment.

The lessons will increase the childrens’ skill level in all aspects, to prepare them to enter a Learn to Swim lesson without the aid of an adult (ie – Beginner 1 level). Parents will be instructed on how to help children to lift their head to breathe, how to enter and exit pool safely, and use of equipment as used in the Beginner Learn to Swim lessons. This instruction is supplemented by various fun and group activities for the enjoyment of both children and adults.
