If any of the following statements are true of your child then Starfish is the perfect class:-
- My child is very fearful of water
- My child has no skills in the water
- My child can go underwater briefly
- My child can move through the water only a meter or less and/or always has floaties on
This class emphasises the same skill set as the beginner Baby class, but at an older age. This means expectations are higher and drills are modified to be age-appropriate, continuing to use songs and games. The students are working on gaining breath control, floating, submersion, and back-floats. A great combination of fun and challenges, this class creates a base skill set to build on as our students move into the intermediate and upper levels.
Note: If your child is enrolled in this class they are please required to wear a permanent, re-usable swim diaper if they are not potty trained, or if there is any chance of an accident.
- Prerequisite: None other than being 2 or 3 or 4 years old
- Final Goal: Swim 3-5 meters Doggy Paddle with no floatation, blow bubbles, perform a comfortable streamline pencil manoeuvre and back-float
If your child can swim about 3-5 meters doggy paddle, with no floatation, then the Octopus is the perfect class.
To be placed into this class, students MUST be comfortable in the water, floating and swimming with their face in and using proper breath control techniques. This challenging class still involves age-appropriate daily themes. The focus of this level centres around breath control and the transitional skill of the rollover breath, which is used for the student to gain a breath on their own.
- Prerequisite: Swim 3-5 meters Doggy Paddle with no floatation
- Final Goal: Swim 10 meters with no floatation, face in the water for a 10 count, comfortable rolling to a back-float and can swim basic Freestyle and Backstroke
The tuition fee is R1320 a term for one half an hour class per week. We offer various discounts for additional children from the same family and additional discounts if you would like your child to attend more than one class a week (The more lessons, the quicker they learn). See the above table for all the prices and discounts available to you. Our swim term is normally 10 weeks (10 lessons), but due to COVERT-19 messing up the calendars a little, this term is 11 weeks.
Pro-Rata Term Fees
If you join part the way through a term then you can take advantage of our pro-rata rates. This will be calculated automatically by our system and will show as a "Discount" on your email confirmation.
If a particular class that you are interested in is full then "Waitlist" will show on the course table. You can add your child to the wait list. Whenever a space becomes available we will immediately let you know. Spaces become available in two ways; the first due to cancellations and the second when we open new additional classes. Please use the "Waitlist" option so that we can gauge demand and open additional classes.
No spaces are guaranteed until you have registered online, received an email confirming that you have enrolled in a class and paid for the class in full (Please CHECK your JUNK folder if you don't immediately receive the mail).
All fees are due at least 7 days prior to the start of the first class.
Non-payment of fees by the due date could result in you losing your space, as many of the popular times have waiting lists.
Bookings for Next Term
If your child has a time slot this term, they will automatically be given the same slot for the next and subsequent terms. We will send you an email before the term starts to confirm your class. If you DO NOT want this class anymore please just email us back and let us know, and we will happily cancel your enrolment.
