We ask that our preschool children wear arm discs (which we provide) when they first start lessons with us as some of the pools are too deep for them to stand. This is for safety reasons and we will remove the discs once the children can hold the woggle safely at all times and have correct body position and leg kick front and back. Arm discs do in no way hinder your child’s progress or cause dependence and can allow them to progress faster.
Children cannot physically support themselves in order to take repeated breaths and swim unaided until around the age of 3. We focus on building confidence in the water and introducing techniques and skills correctly so that the children can progress faster.
