Encouraging your child to learn to swim is one of most important opportunities you can give them.
If you get children interested in swimming when they're young as there is a good chance they will enjoy the water for the rest of their life.
Benefits of our Programme
We are proud to be working in partnership with Scottish Swimming.
Swimming provides the opportunity to learn a life skill whilst interacting and having fun in a group environment. This should be no different for a child with a disability and where possible your child will be included in a class with their peers.
What should you expect from our swimming lesson programme?
All children should be having fun! The should be involved in games-based activities to help them learn skills such as breathing, submerging and moving in the water. Swimming strokes will be introduced gradually once a child has learned the core aquatic skills.
