Quotes from parents having participated in the programme with their child:
 
  • "Tutors have an excellent ability to cater lessons to the children's ability and confidence, while still moving them forward" Robert N
 
  • "Brings the whole family together" Lucinda
 
  • "...to see how much he has grown in confidence - he wouldn't ever get that in a paddling pool" Anna
 
Educational researcher John Hattie states the most critical factor for children to succeed in learning is the interaction between the teacher and child. Our swim programme at Kings recognizes this and particularly the importance of this teacher/child relationship in a water environment - a non-natural habitat for humans.
 
A child must feel safe and secure for learning to occur– if he/she is in ‘fight or flight’ mode no learning will be retained.

With this in mind it is therefore essential that each child within the programme, has their parent in the water with them until the time that they are ready emotionally and developmentally to ‘go it alone’.

This decision is made with the child, parent and tutor (and if needed programme co-ordinator). Hence, Kings Swim School has a strong view on ‘parents as the teacher’, with our tutors teaching the parents and facilitating the lesson.
 
Each child is different and just like all learning for under fives, their role modelling comes from close family members.

Kings Swim School is based at:
109 Main South Road
Sockburn
Christchurch

Lessons run for 25 minutes. Monday - Sunday.

Parents/caregivers over age 16 are required in the water with the child.

A free of charge assessment is provided, in order to place you and your child in the correct class.
