What do you love about Learn to Swim?
It is the best experience to be a part of a child’s learning to swim journey. Swimming can be an amazing experience and a lot of fun but it is important that we understand that it can also be quite dangerous without learning first. To know that you are helping children be safe in the water and allowing them the freedom to have a lot of fun is an amazing feeling. For me I love teaching Learn to Swim because it is just so much fun!
A tip for your first lesson.
It is normal to be nervous or apprehensive but once the child becomes familiar and comfortable with the routine they not only have a lot of fun but the benefits are well worth it. Be patient and the results will come. Perhaps if it is a younger child’s first experience bring a favourite toy that can go in the water to make them feel more comfortable.
Favourite place to swim?
For me, it doesn’t really matter where I am as long as I can swim. I just love it that much.
