Our Tots program is our specialised babies program. Within this program, we focus on getting babies to become competent in various fundamental swimming skills, even before they can walk! These fundamental skills include (but are not limited to), being safe and comfortable in the water by blowing bubbles, floating, kicking and paddling, safety falls & turning to safety.
The Risers program in our centre is unique as we believe that aquatic education is based around physical, cognitive and developmental stages for all swimmers. This program is considered a confidence & skill building transitional program from the Tots to the Strokies program.
The Strokies program focuses on getting children moving with confidence and utilising appropriate stroke techniques. Children in this program may begin as young as 3 years of age who have never swum before, upto their tween years. As with all of our programs, this one too has a big focus on water safety skills.
The Pre-Squads program involves stroke perfection and preparation for squad based swimming. By the end of this level, children are competent swimmers in all 4 strokes and can do laps of our pool comfortably.
Student focused, results oriented & passionately taught by community conscious, trained & qualified staff.
Our vision is to create a community where swimming becomes second nature, where each baby is nurtured and supported emotionally & physically through their swimming journey by being in formal swimming lessons from 3 months old to become safe, competent swimmers by the time they are in Primary school. We do so within a safe, community minded environment.
Our values are an expression of us and are very important in shaping how we present and work with you and your children. Our lessons are child centred. We recognise each child as an individual and so cater the lesson to the child’s needs, while remaining within our set lesson plan guidelines. This provides for consistency in each lesson, while tailoring each lesson to your child and their individual pace. We focus on your child’s progression at their progression rate and on their readiness.
A teacher in the pool or a staff member at reception, on the Desk, we are here to build our Swimz Guildford community, upskill the children in water safety and aquatics and have a responsibility to support & develop each child in their swim journey from 3 months of age.
Swimz, Guildford is a child safe organisation. We put the best interests of children and young people first. Our Child Safe Policies are available on request.
