Did you know that the earlier you introduce your child to water, the more comfortable and confident they can become in aquatic environments?

Welcome to our Baby and Toddler Swimming Lessons in Singapore, where we unveil the secrets to nurturing water confidence in your little ones from as early as six months of age.

Many parents may not be aware that babies have a natural affinity for water. At this tender age, their reflexes allow them to instinctively hold their breath when submerged, making it an ideal time to introduce them to the joys of swimming.

Our expert instructors understand the unique needs of infants and toddlers, and our program is designed to create a safe, fun, and educational experience for both parents and their little swimmers.

Join us in our Baby and Toddler Swimming Lessons to witness these benefits firsthand and provide your child with the essential skills and confidence needed to thrive in the water.

With this system and structured training programme in place, we are able to take a shorter time to train every student, compared to the past.

For our flagship group class, the minimum age to join is 6 years old (K2) for now. Let us know if your child is below 6 years old but more than 110cm tall. The coach has to assess if he/she can join.

How long will my child learn to swim in the Flagship class?2018-02-27T17:43:15+08:00

Each child has different exceptional abilities and confidence level in water.

In our flagship class, it takes an average of 10 months for a 6 year old (K2) child to be able to do basic swimming at the deep pool unaided.

This is based on a weekly lesson where the child does not skip practice. Older children may take shorter time learning to swim, but that depends on each individual student.

How often is the SwimSafer test conducted in the Flagship class?2018-05-15T18:24:25+08:00

For our Flagship class, we hold our test every Quarter. The dates generally fall on the 5th Saturday or Sunday of the month. The average progress for each level is nine months.

Students are constantly being assessed on their skill sets. Once your child is ready for a certain level, the coach will continue teaching your child the next level skills. Student progress is not solely based on certificates/awards achieved by the student.

How long does it take to achieve Stage 1?2017-10-05T11:06:39+08:00

This will depend on the age of your child.

A 5 year old child will take about 1 year to meet the requirements of Stage 1.

There are kids who take months to overcome the fear of water and it takes them a few months to adapt.

A 10 year old might take 3 months to meet that requirement.

So, it’s best to ask the coach that is teaching him for a better understanding.
