Timothy (7) & Kara (4) have been having swimming lessons for awhile now. Timothy & Kara can not wait to go up to Nanny's at summer time to swim in the pool.
Liam (3) his very first swimming lesson - waiting patiently for his swimming lesson to start
Liam was very hesitant about what he was suppose to do, but the instructor wasnt overly fussed as they like the little ones to get to know and trust them first.

Timothy believes he doesnt need his floaties this summer.. is he in for a shock!!!
Learning to swim is a vital skill for all ages, especially children.
Ensuring your child receives quality teaching is important because larning to swim is a skill for life. Having your child "learn to swim" by a qualified teacher will ensure they are provided with appropriate skills.
However water familiarisation is no subsitutute for adult supervision. Rember, always keep watch when children are in and around water.
