Baby and preschool
It’s never too soon to start! Our foundation programme encourages parents to share ‘confidence time’ in the water with their little ones.
Babies and preschoolers learn basic motor skills and have lots of fun as they start their learn-to-swim journey. Play games and watch as they get used to being in the water - all preparation for starting their swim journey when they're older.
5-9 year olds
From the age of 5-8 for girls and 6-9 for boys, children are at just the right stage of development to build on their growing strength and movement skills. At this stage, the focus is on specific water skills like safe entry and exit from the pool, rotation and orientation, and the importance of streamlining, buoyancy and balance. Having gained confidence in and under the water, children go on to learn aquatic breathing, how to travel effectively through the water and accomplish the various stroke techniques.
