Preschool

In our Preschool programme, we focus on personal safety, health/stamina building, rough motor skills and breath control. Lessons are conducted in a child-centred, fun and positive manner encouraging a lifelong love for the water. Research has proven that it is recommended for children to have swimming lessons at least until the age of nine, as this will help register the correct technical movements for lifelong safety and enjoyment in the water.

The average age for our Duckie (Preschool) programme is three to five years old.

Learning Through Play

Play is paramount to a young child and is part and parcel of their learning process. Children, while playing, are unaware of the skills they are developing and achieving in the aquatic environment. All of our classes are fun filled, while our coaches ensure that every child learns the fundamental skills of swimming and water safety.
