How we teach
We treat every little swimmer as if they were our own, giving them plenty of care and attention. All our swim teachers are AUSTSWIM-qualified and put fun at the centre of the learning experience.
We love watching your children progress over the years from wide-eyed babies to confident dolphins! We enjoy talking about your child’s progress after each swim class.
We celebrate each achievement and take the time to notice the little things about your child, (like their cool new bathers), as well as the big things (like asking them if they need an extra hug if they’re feeling blue). Kindness is at the heart of everything we do, and the way we teach.
Prepare, Instruct and Praise
Our Prepare, Instruct, Praise philosophy is the backbone of our program. It’s the difference between children developing confidence and skills in the water and resisting. This teaching approach results in children swimming independently earlier – and doing so in a safe, welcoming environment.
PREPARE. We prepare children by teaching them to accept water. When this is achieved, they can embrace water! We spend lots of time preparing babies and young children to feel safe and comfortable. And yes, then the playing, splashing, and giggling begins!
INSTRUCT. We explain what to do through verbal direction, then show them what to do by gently manipulating their bodies to help develop the motion they’ll need to master the swim-skill. We guide them through the process with abundant support, kindness, and assistance.
PRAISE. We celebrate every success. Learning to swim is a fun adventure! After every new skill or attempt we provide encouragement and recognition of their effort.
