Find out what your child can expect on their first session with this swim school.

Who is the teacher? What will they be asked to do? Will they be allowed their armbands? What will happen before and after class?

Kids will be happier to come to class if they understand what will be happening.




The more time you spend with your child in the pool, the better the position you will be in to understand what skills need work, what fears may need conquering, and what your child really loves about the water.

All this info can be passed to the swim teacher, who will work it into lessons plans.

If you’re not already a swimmer, there’s no better time to learn than while your child does!

Spending bonding time together in the pool, comparing what you both learned that week, is a really special experience.

Plus, your child will feel more confident, and be inspired to do even better in lessons.




Proper swimwear designed for the purpose, a good pair of goggles (we love the split strap ones!), and a fluffy towel for post-swim shower – all essentials for a comfortable swim lesson.

Don’t forget that shower, either – it warms the kids back up once they exit the water, and washes away pool chemicals too.
