OUR LESSON OPTIONS
Toddler Swim 7mths – 2yrs
The water safety and water orientation programme is based on repetition by simplified steps that are fun adding sing-a-long songs for kids to join in. This is a great time for both mommy and daddy to bond with their new baby in the pool and enjoy this time with your little one. Moms and Dads are weaned out of the pool when their kids reach twenty months.
The programme is based on repetition to encourage children to adopt the exercises if they should fall into the pool without them. The earlier your child starts swimming, the sooner they will pick up on these skills. Nothing will ever be forced on your child and they will not be made to do anything they are not comfortable with.
At Mac’s Swim School, we are very proud of the relationships that are formed with our swimmers, parents, and instructors. We encourage our swimmers to be independent and confident in the water. When assistance is required or needed we are always close by. Trust is the most important factor for a child’s safety with an instructor.
We run 30-minute classes, allowing time for kids to settle, have their lesson, and then have five minutes of playtime in which the child gets to have fun in the water in a safe environment (the classroom becomes the playground).

Stroke Correction classes are for waterborne children who can swim totally unaided. These are also group classes, with a maximum of four in a group and a fully qualified instructor. The aim of these classes is to get the child swimming all four FINA strokes – freestyle with bilateral breathing, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Diving, tumble turns, push and glides, and loads of water games are also included at this level. You would receive a DORI Certificate to move to Stroke correction in a 25m pool!
Certificates are rewarded for Three Levels. NEMO! DORI! DOLPHIN!
