Q. What can I expect on my child's first day of class?
A. Nerves initially – we will work hard to introduce fun and a feeling of progression and success. We use in water assistants to reduce your child’s fears.

Q. How long to swim?
A. Water highlights personal challenges – the less the child has to overcome of these the faster progress a child will achieve – we have had swimmers vary from five lessons to twenty five to achieve a quality stroke.

Q. Regularity of lessons?
A. All children are different however around ten lessons should deliver an ability to swim and float, this will be influenced by the amount of time taken.

Q. Maturity before joining?
A. Potty trained and exposure to water play (bath, showers and ideally exposure to a swimming pool) this will save significant time/expense and reduce stress for the swimmer and their parent

Q. What should I bring?
A. A towel and a practical swimming costume


Q. Goggle policy?
A. We will teach with them at times both on and off – water safety sessions are non goggle only – advanced swimmers are encouraged to wear them as they swim faster and therefore need good vision

Q. What should we leave at home?
A. Floatation aids, arm bands, fun suits, toys, comforters – all of these unless properly used are a distraction to the teaching process – we do not normally use arm bands.

Q. What should we do on the first day of class?
A. Arrive ten minutes before the lesson starts – get changed and bring your child to the teacher at the start of the lesson
