What happens in a Tadpole toddler class?
Plenty of fun melodies to make learning to swim exciting for you and your little one
Tadpole toddler lessons are all about extending breath control, comfortably submerging, and learning to be independently mobile
Our expert instructors will work with you to get your little one kicking and reaching
Strengthening your toddler’s mobility and buoyancy skills so they can independently kick, paddle and float
Your toddler will learn how to independently swim between yourself and the teacher and be able to hold their breath for a minimum of 5 seconds. By the time your child turns 3 years old, our aim is to graduate them to our Crab class where they will be able to advance their swimming abilities without a parent in the water. Throughout the Tadpole class, we practice lots of independent swimming to extend your child’s confidence.
