What happens in a Turtle toddler class?
Plenty of fun melodies to make learning to swim exciting for your little one
Our expert instructors will work with your child to get them kicking and paddling using noodles and kickboards
Turtle toddler lessons are all about developing unassisted mobility and buoyancy skills
Your toddler will learn how to jump and submerge independently as well as propel themselves through the water without assistance. By the time your child turns 3 years old, our aim is to graduate them to our Octopus class where they will begin learning how to swim basic freestyle. Throughout the Turtle class, we practice lots of independent swimming to extend your child’s confidence.
