The cost will depend on your toddlers’ swimming level (according to either age or existing swimming experience), and the duration of the lesson. See our Programs page for more information on the different class levels available.
No matter the age, the time taken to learn swimming depends on various factors, such as the child’s comfort level in the water, their physical abilities and the frequency of lessons. In some cases, toddlers have an initial fear of water, so it can take more time than expected to reach a level of comfort at the pool.
Attending at least one lesson per week will help towards consistent progress and retention of skills. However, attending swimming lessons more frequently helps your child grasp skills even sooner.
Fitted swimwear, a towel, a spare pair of clothes, goggles, a water bottle. If your child is not toilet trained yet, then swim nappies are mandatory. (Swim nappies are specially designed to keep things contained, and they don’t become heavy and bogged down like standard nappies do.) Requirements on what to bring may vary among different schools, so check with your chosen swimming school.
