Swimming lessons starting as young as 4 months old are designed to educate the parents on the fundamentals of Learn to Swim. Following a 7 step process parents can track and understand the steps needed to see consistent progress. Learn holds, conditioning, strength exercises and much much more.
During lessons, my focus is on learning – talking with the parents and educating them about on different methods and skills they can introduce to assist the development of each child. Songs can be great for building a positive environment for a beginners, however I’d prefer to keep the focus on making the most from the 30 minute swimming lesson.
I am a firm believer that children should learn to swim without the aid of floatation devices. In certain circumstances floatation aids can be introduced briefly to aid the progression, but children should be taught breath control and feel buoyancy to enable a positive aquatic experience.
