Swimming lessons in indoor heated facilities
Every child needs to know how to swim in order to survive in and around water, swimming lessons should be a compulsory and non-negotiable part of every child's education. This is one extra mural activity, which is not an extravagance but one of the best investments you will ever make. The latest statistics for drowning in South Africa is increasing substantially with over 600 reported and recorded cases each year.
Besides equipping children with a vital life skill, by enrolling them in swimming classes, you will be greatly enhancing, promoting and improving their visual and auditory skills, general muscle tone, respiratory function, co-ordination, body space awareness and bone density. Children, who attend swimming lessons, are being developed and stimulated beyond most of our expectations.
Little Fishes has 32 years experience and we are passionate about teaching and allowing children the ability to explore the wonders of water.
When choosing a swimming school its essential to check if the school and their instructors are approved through Swim South Africa. At Little Fishes Swimming School instructors are qualified and register with Swimming South Africa every year. They also have current Level 1 First Aid Certification and are obliged to update their CPR qualifications and to produce a Police Clearance Certificate annually
Our centre is also sanctioned by Swim South Africa which means the highest level and teaching as well as facility offering is required.
2:1 Ratio between child and instructor
Each child is taken at his / her own pace. All teaching is in groups as interaction with others is fun and competition is a great motivator. Particular care is taken to ensure that children are placed in appropriate classes.
How long will it take for you child to Learn to Swim?
There is unfortunately no definitive answer to this question. What we can tell you is that there is no “quick fix” when it comes to learning to swim. The more committed you are to bringing your child to lessons regularly, the faster your child will progress. It is all about constant aquatic exposure. A child would learn to swim as quickly as he / she learns to walk if he / she was exposed to the aquatic environment as frequently as he / she was given the opportunity to practise walking. No child is the same and as they learn to roll over, crawl, walk and talk at different times, so it is with swimming
Little Fishes Facility
We have a modern indoor, heated CHILD FRIENDLY swimming centre in a warm and light atmosphere. The swimming pool and surrounding areas have been custom built to accommodate infants, learn to swim and stroke development classes. The facilities are suitable for teaching of the various strokes, diving, tumble turns etc. Changing rooms and indoor toilets are situated inside the swimming enclosure and there are viewing areas for parents. We have a small coffee shop “LittleCafe” The water is kept at a constant 30 / 31°C with state of the art electric heat pumps so classes can continue during the cooler months of the year
