If my child is ill with minor illness?
Answer – If no fever or contagious condition is evident your child may swim.
Time to arrive?
Answer 1st lesson, get here 15 minutes before the start of your childs lesson. This will orientate your child with the environment and give them a chance to see another child enjoying their lesson. You will also need to fill out a registration/consent form for your child. Thereafter 5 minutes before the lesson is sufficient.
Costume and other requirements?
Answer – toddlers -UV all in one, sun-suits, are most comfortable for the children or any other fitting costume (no baggy shorts).Cap, goggles and towel. I do sell lycra swimming caps.
Babies swimming nappies, (little swimmers or a fabric swimming nappy). UV all in one sun -suit. I do sell custom made lycra swimming nappies. Towel. Always remember to bring along an additional normal nappy. Parents comfortable costume and towel.
How long before my child will be able to swim or be water safe?
As children develop at different rates and learn differently according to their age, ability, concentration and co-ordination, progress is assessed individually. Swimming is however achieved in relation to the regularity and consistency of lessons. Encouragement is necessary but always bear in mind that force is not conducive to the swimming environment. Children will take to water more easily if allowed to progress at their own pace with encouragement.
