Our learn to swim classes begins from about 2 & 1/2 years of age. However as mentioned above, we evaluate the level which the child is at and possibly an older child may need to begin at the beginner level as well. We encourage children to develop their own love and feel for the water with lots of fun activities at the same time building trust with their instructor.
Our main focus is water safety!
Should a child fall into the water accidentally, this will give them the confidence and skill to get to side of the pool safely. After this stage, we then start training the children in beginner strokes. This lays a very good foundation for every child in the 4 swimming strokes namely: long arms (freestyle), backstroke, froggie (breaststroke) and butterfly.
For the child who is naturally gifted and potentially the next Olympic swimmer for South Africa, the foundation will be strong and solid. For every other child, they will complete their training with Aquatic kids as being confident in the water, with a love for swimming and ready for the next stage. We are passionate about what we do and desire to see every child water safe with a love for swimming!
