Our penguin classes are diverse and cater for the timid inexperienced child as well as challenging the experienced confident child to extend their skills to a higher level. Classes are grouped according to age and experience to enhance learning for every child.
Dog paddle is an elementary skill easily mastered by the 2-3 year old child and enables independent movement in the water with and without swim aids.
For the new child, developing confidence, water familiarisation and breath control are introduced gently.
The focus for the more experienced child will be on further developing movement and propulsion, extending breath control, and encouraging their emerging independence. As children become more experienced, they become stronger and more efficient and the dependence on float aids decreases. Safe behaviour in and around water is always emphasized
