Kids & Baby Swim Classes in Albany
Learning to swim is a vital skill for all children. We are happy to offer swimming lessons for children from 6 months – 4 years of age, as well as after-school sessions for children 5 years and over. Run by experienced instructors in accordance with the Royal Life Saving Australia guidelines, our lessons focus on teaching confidence and survival skills in the water, and specialised stroke techniques and stroke correction.
Our small group classes in our heated pool run in line with the school terms. Spaces are limited so enrol early to avoid disappointment.
Safe, Fun & Effective Swimming Lessons
BodyCare Physiotherapy Swim School offers small group lessons from six months of age up to stage six. Our sessions focus on safety, skill development and fun. All sessions are conducted in our heated pool by our experienced instructors, Jackie, Hayley & Hayden.
Customised Swim Lessons for Different Age Groups
Infant aquatics – six months to four years:
Our infant aquatic sessions are designed to encourage aquatic skills suitable for each developmental age. These lessons are taught with a parent or carer in the water with each child. The parent plays an important role in these sessions providing guidance, support as they develop water familiarisation, exploration and water safety skills. As the child progresses we work towards independent lessons without these caregivers in the water.
Swim and Survive – stages one to six:
This program is for older children who can confidently and independently undertake swimming lessons, normally around 4 years of age. We offer stages 1-6 focusing on stroke development, underwater skills, entries and exits, rescue skills and safe movement in water. Small group classes ensure every child is given guidance and are able to progress and develop vital skills in a manner that suits their individual development.
