How will I know if my child is ready for the next level?

Our swim coaches take your child's progression very seriously. We conduct constant evaluations to ensure your child is in the right class at the right time. It is also important to note that rushing though our program might do more harm than good.

Parents have to bear in mind that a child who is rushed through our program, will never be as efficient a swimmer as compared to a child that takes the time to master the different skill sets offered in our program.

Is there a different rate for kids with special needs?

As there is a wide range of special need kids we handle this on a case by case basis. If the condition is mild, we will advise them to join the normal swim lessons. Please give us more details and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
