Our Half Term Swim Confidence Courses for 4 to 7 year olds are designed to give children a real boost in and around the water, promoting safety, developing swimming skill and technique levels in the pool whilst having fun!
Held Monday to Thursday, these 4 longer, 40 minute sessions, give the children a little more time in the water participating in and practicing exercises addressing the fundamentals. Your child’s lesson takes place at the same time on each day of the course.
We have designed a progressive learning programme that follows the framework outlined by the Swim Teachers Association. There is a maximum of 4 children learning with a single teacher and the lessons are taught in our private, heated and purpose-built pool.
We offer courses for both ‘Starters’ and ‘Improvers’. The Starter level is aimed at beginners or children who have had no formal lessons previously or who consistently demonstrate a lack of confidence in the water. The Improver level is aimed at those who have some basic skills and can swim confidently with floatation devices.
Each course focuses on learning a series of techniques that are key to the development of independent swimming. The children will be taught these through attentive teaching and support, utilising a platform in our pool on which the children can stand in the water safely.
Parents don’t need to be in the water with the child, however are required to help the children get dressed before and after the lesson and ensure they reach poolside for the teacher to collect them. We also ask that parent’s remain in our viewing area throughout the class – where of course you can sit back and relax with a treat from our coffee shop!
