We begin your child’s journey towards learning to swim by teaching them water skills to increase their confidence such as moving around the water, encouraging aquatic breathing (through blowing bubbles into the water). Moving towards submerging under the water and placing their faces into the water. This can start with children from as young as 3½/4 years old. This leads onto the early stages of learning the strokes of swimming which generally starts from 4½/5years old (this is due to cognitive development and concentration levels).
Once your child has developed water confidence and a strong leg kick, we can begin to introduce the arm pulling action, breathing technique and performing the full strokes.
