Learn to Swim – Adult, Baby, and Preschool
Wavebreakers Swim School offers a range of classes suitable for children 6 months – 4 years old.
Adult & Baby (6 months-4 years) – Using a combination of songs, games and structured play our professionally qualified swim teachers will help you to guide your child through their first aquatic experiences.
Preschool (4-5 years) – Your child is now ready to experience being independent in the pool. Small classes and friendly, caring swim teachers will ensure your child has a positive learning experience. Four ability levels catering for the inexperienced beginner to the confident swimmer.
All lessons cover the following areas:
- Water familiarisation – developing confidence, encouraging safe exploration and gaining basic breath control.
- Basic skills – teaching balanced movement, flotation, kicking and the basis of swimming strokes.
- Water safety – developing parent/caregiver awareness of water safety issues.
Please feel free to speak to us personally about choosing the right class for your child.
For health reasons, all toddlers under 4 years are required to wear waterproof nappies when in the pool.
