For children 4 years & over there will be a maximum of 6 children in a class & the instructor will be in the water until the children can swim 10m on all 3 strokes out of their depth. From Level 5 onwards the class size may increase & the instructor will teach from the poolside. The children are grouped ability wise & at the end of each term the instructor will assess them to see if they are ready to move to the next level. They will also work towards achieving various STA awards which if successful, can be purchased at the end of the term.
All children must wear a swimming hat & this is provided at the first lesson.
