Jelly Fish, Clown Fish (Carer/ Child Lessons)
Lessons for Toddlers and Preschool Aged students every morning and afternoon from Monday to Friday and in the morning on Saturdays and Sundays. The classes for Toddlers and Preschool aged children are very popular and with a maximum of three (3) or four (4) children per class, lesson times are booked heavily for almost nine months of the year.
Just like all the other classes at our facility, no “back bubbles” or “arm floats” flotation aids are used to teach these students. Remember, rarely will toddlers or preschoolers fall into a pool unexpectedly with flotation aids on. In most cases children will unexpectedly fall into a body of water with clothes and shoes on.
In this level, the outcome is to teach children to be able to swim 8 meters unaided before they begin to learn the basics of “Overarm” and “Stroking”. Typically, if children have attended lessons consistently, we see children as young as 3.5 years of age be able to do this set skill.
Quick tip – Be prepared! Going under water and swimming with your head down is the goal for this level, so buy a good pair of comfortable – child sized – goggles and practice with them on at home in the bath and shower. Swimming caps are also required to be worn during lessons.
When selecting staff to teach this level we look for people who have a genuine passion and a natural teaching style with very young children. Typically, instructors are either parents themselves or studying to be qualified school teachers.
Classes are run for these levels 7 days a week.
