Water Familiarisation

Tadpoles (Level D1)


WestSwim’s Tadpole program focuses on water familiarisation, confidence and the development of basic swimming skills. We understand that it can sometimes be a scary experience for children when they first start swimming;

which is why we have specialist instructors who teach our Tadpole classes. Our teachers take their time, to ensure each swimmer is comfortable before progressing to the next stage.

In the Tadpole stage, we focus on learning the following skills:

  1. Safe entry and exit to the pool.
  2. Submersion, with breath control.
  3. Buoyancy and Floatation
  4. Water Safety Skills

Class size: 3 swimmers | Class duration: 30 minutes | Age group: 2.5 years to 4 years
