an indoor lesson.

6. Are there
differences between private swimming lesson and group swimming lesson?
Yes, there are
significant differences between the two types of swimming lessons. With private swimming lessons, you
get to choose the swimming location and the time. You also determine the make-up of the students which can be
just you or a very small group of students you put together. In exchange we require a minimum of four lessons in

appropriate for students under 3 years of age. Group sessions are also available for
7. If my child
cries at a swimming lesson, does it mean he/she is not ready for swimming?
No, children may
cry for a number of reasons that have little to do with swimming. They may be having a bad day, be adjusting to
the new environment or facing some anxiety caused by being away from their parents crying is a normal reaction
and it does not mean your child isn't ready for swimming lessons. With time, his/ her confidence will
emerge and he/ she will relax enough to enjoy the wonderful experiences swimming will bring him/
8. Where are
your swimming lessons usually conducted?
We have the
capability of providing swimming lessons anywhere on the island. Access to a pool is all we need you to provide

group lessons include Woodlands Swimming Complex and
the Tampines Swimming Complex. With an ever growing
schedule, it is impossible to provide a set schedule. We suggest you contact us to find out more on the day,

9. How old
should my child be to start swimming lessons?
Even a child of 6
months old is able to learn to swim. Younger children are less fearful of water and are able to adapt quickly to
their surroundings. Even your very young children are welcome to take swimming lessons with us. Our Infant
classes may be to your liking.
10. How long
does it take to learn how to swim?
process varies from one student to the next. Those with natural abilities may learn more quickly than others.
While those who fear the water may take longer. The pace at which you or your children learn is not important.
What is important is gaining the confidence in your abilities that will allow you to enjoy this new experience
and we can help you achieve that.
11. Why are
the infant and young toddler classes shorter than the other classes?
As with all
activities for young children, shorter classes are necessary to accommodate their shorter attention spans and
the fatigue they experience more quickly than older students. If lessons persist past their tolerance level,
they will not absorb what is being taught. Short, entertaining classes that are fun are more productive and
educational for this age group than a longer class with longer duration.
12. My child has attended the Primary school swimming
lesson, is that enough?
Most of the
Primary school, only provides 10 hours of basic swimming lesson (SwimSafer Stage 1). It only covers very basic water confident and
survival skill up to 10m or less. Thus, your child is strongly encouraged to continue swimming lesson up to at
least Bronze stage, which is required by most Secondary Schools
