Our baby and pre-school programme is based on the teaching methods of one of Australia’s leading Swim Schools.
— Glovers Swim School
 

Beginning from as early as 3 months old your child will be taught skills which develop water awareness and water confidence.  Our program incorporates many songs, games and activities to make each lesson stimulating and enjoyable.

We strongly believe in teaching to the individual needs of each child at a pace which suits them. This helps to ensure your child gets the most from their swimming lessons. All pools we use for our baby programme are heated to at least 31 degrees to ensure your child is comfortable in the water.

3- 12  months

Babies can be taught to swim from Birth. Children are welcome to join our swim programme from 3 months.  Skills such as breath control, submersion, and free floating are all taught in this level. These classes are a great opportunity to bond with your child on the start of their swimming journey.

12 - 24 months

As your child becomes more mobile on land this helps them to initiate movement through the water. Skills such as kicking and paddle movements with a woggle, turning towards the wall, as well safe entries and exits will be the focus for these classes.

2 - 3 years

As your child’s development advances they will begin to become more independent in the water. Most children at this level are able to combine paddling and kicking actions to move through the water unaided over short distances. Children will also learn vital water safety and survival skills through exciting games and activities. 

3+ years

Your child’s will start to become even more ‘water confident’ as they learn to perfect their swimming skills. In this level the focus will be towards breath control, advancement in safety skills, as well as progressive learn to swim techniques.  There will be lots of fun and games to ensure your child has the best experience possible.
