Toddler Swimming Lessons

Introducing swimming to your young toddler helps them to prepare for proper swimming techniques and leads them to a healthy lifestyle when they grow up! Most importantly, swimming is an important life-saving skill that can benefit them and keep them safe for life.

Programme Information

Once your child completed our swimming programme for babies, parents may wish to enrol their child in our toddler swimming lessons. This helps to keep your child active with a weekly swimming class, at the same time learn some advanced swimming strokes to further improves their swimming techniques. For our toddler swimming programme, we will gradually progress them according to their swimming performance and techniques, to keep them challenged and continue to improve.

For our toddler swimming class, parents are also encouraged to join in the fun with their little ones. This will help your little ones to quickly gain water confidence. Toddlers who have been in our baby swimming lessons before will probably be more confident and ready for advanced swimming techniques and strokes. At this age, they will be able to listen to instructions and perform better, learn how to swim a further distance.

Why Your Child Should Learn Swimming

Learn A Life Saving Skill

Every child is born a natural swimmer and often without fear of water, like a “fish in water”. Learning how to swim not just keep your little ones safe, it also strengthens them both physically and mentally.

Quality Bonding Time

During the lesson, parents are encouraged to participate together as it is an excellent opportunity for you to bond and observe your child develop their love of floating in a weightless, calm and safe environment.

Build Confidence

When you introduced your child to activities like swimming at an early age, it helps your little one to eliminate any possible fear of water, instil confidence and develop a sense of independence in them.
