The Swim School curriculum is divided into class levels. It is important to place your child in the appropriate class for their safety and to maximize their learning.
This group is for children who do not know how to swim, and are maybe even a little fearful of swimming/water. Also suitable for children who can doggy paddle a few arms length, but cannot make it across the width of the pool without stopping to put their feet down.
This group is for children who can make it across the pool once or twice without putting their feet down. They should be able to submerge confidently (although they may plug their nose each time they go underwater). This class is for weak swimmers who need to be watched closely.
This group is for children who know how to swim and are generally strong swimmers, children who may even know a few strokes. This group is about refining the strokes they know and learning new strokes. These children must know how to tread water.
