The environment enhances learning. The pool environment needs to be comfortable, nurturing and encouraging. Hence, our water and air temperature are always lovely and warm for the children. This allows our children to learn all year round, no matter what the weather is like outside.
People learn in different ways; some process information by listening, some by watching and some need a more practical approach. We have found that using a combination of methods meets everyone’s needs.
Learning is best achieved by breaking a skill down into bite-sized pieces. At State Swim, we have a progressive system where the next skill is only taught after the foundation skill has been grasped.
Progression achievements are rewarded with certificates to mark children’s accomplishments, and they officially pronounce their readiness for learning the next skill. We ring the bell to announce a swimmer’s progression to the next level and encourage others to do the same.
Children learn from each other, which is why we have small class sizes. It is better for children to observe others attempting the same skills rather than being in a class by themselves; hence, group lessons are more beneficial.
Our Supervisors and Swim School Managers are available at any time to discuss your child’s progress.
I hope you find this information useful.
