How we teach?
We know it’s important for kids to learn to swim in a friendly, fun environment, where safety is a priority, so we use a mixture of toys, floating equipment, and games to help. See an example lesson plan here.
We’re a SwimEngland (formally known as ASA) accredited Swim School and follow the SwimEngland National Learn to Swim Pathway. Your child will progress from learning to float, to gaining confidence in the water, and then going on to master each stroke, by progressing through the different levels.
We believe that each child should learn at their own pace but also be encouraged to progress as soon as they are ready. Using a process of continual assessment, we are committed to reviewing your child’s progress at the end of every lesson (not just at the end of every term like many other schools do). Our swimmers move on to another class when they individually meet the criteria for the next class as soon as they do and do not have to wait until the rest of the class has or the next term arrives to do so.
