At Aquabubs our swimming program starts with an introduction to the aquatic environment and progresses the student through a range of activities and skills, including water familiarisation, water safety education, survival skills and eventually stroke development.
Baby and Toddler Swim
At Aquabubs our program starts with baby and toddler swimming lessons for children from 6 weeks old to 3.5 years old. These classes are parent or carer accompanied and led by our experienced, Austswim trained teachers. It is a gentle introduction to swimming in a fun, playful and relaxed way with a progression that will help develop natural swimming skills.
Learn To Swim
At Aquabubs our Learn to Swim program focuses on developing good streamlining and kicking to increase propulsion. The basic strokes will be introduced together with skills like treading water, diving water safety education. These classes are led by one teacher to a group of 4 students.
Aquabubs is an Autism Swim certified center and some of our instructors are Autism Swim certified. Autism Swim accredited swimming teachers who understand the complexities of ASD and the support mechanisms necessary to educate individuals on water safety, equipping them with the necessary skills to be confident and safe in the water. We offer private lessons and also parent accompanied, small group classes for children with Autism and other special needs.
Our 1-1 holiday intensives are 30 minute private lessons suitable for toddlers aged 2 to children up to the age of 10. The package of holiday classes run every day, at the same time, for the week during school holidays giving children the chance to consolidate their learning by building endurance and repeating skill requirements within a short time frame. This program also benefits those children who have had some time off and wish to get back into their swimming.
Family Swim Sessions
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is "How long will it take my child to learn how to swim?" Each child will progress at a different rate, however practice, exposure and consistency are the keys to learning. Here at Aquabubs we encourage the parents take them to the pool regularly - this means two or more times per week.
At our Bangsar and United Point swim centre, we have family swim sessions daily from 12-2pm. A parent and child can come for a casual swim or practice the skills you and your child have learned in class. It promotes bonding with your child and you can use the time to schedule a playdate with friends too! This is FREE for Aquabubs students!
We do require an adult to accompany your child in the pool for these sessions.
