Preschool kids swimming lessons

Our Geelong kids swimming lessons teach water confidence, awareness and safety.

Small class sizes, highly trained teachers and a reputation for quality are the reasons why families from throughout Geelong bring their preschoolers to our kids swimming lessons.

With a maximum of four students in each class, our preschool swimming lessons and modern curriculum give your preschooler the best chance of progressing with their swimming.

We have classes for preschool beginners through to those who have been swimming since Aqua Babies and are confident and competent in the water. Preschool classes are held weekday mornings and Saturday mornings. See our online enrolments for more information.

In our preschool swimming lessons your child will gain:

  • Water confidence – feeling comfortable in water, even when they’re out of their depth.
  • Water awareness and safety – an understanding of the dangers of water and how to do their best to get themselves out of trouble if they unexpectedly fall in or find themselves in deep water.
  • Basic swimming skills – how to use an an effective doggy paddle and learning to float independently.
  • Body positioning – showing the best positioning for the most effective movement in the water.
  • Introduction to swimming strokes – we begin with freestyle and backstroke development, teaching the best methods for your child’s age and development.

Leopold Swim School has its own curriculum, developed to represent industry best practice. We’re run by experts with more than 20 years in the swim school industry, as well as a background in competitive swimming including representing Victoria at an Australian-level both in the pool and surf life saving.

It’s also important to know that swimming is taught by repetition. Throughout our curriculum we gradually introduce new movements and skills that are practiced until perfected before we move on to the next level. That’s why it’s important to persist with lessons year-round – any break in lessons significantly hampers progress with many children staying in the same level for a longer period of time if they’ve skipped a term.

We understand that swimming can be intimidating for youngsters with some preschool children fearful and anxious in the pool, but our highly-trained instructors will patiently help them build their confidence using proven methods that gradually lessons anxiety.

Leopold Swim School’s kids swimming lessons Geelong are conducted in our purpose built Geelong swimming pool. Our pool is heated to 34° Celsius, so it’s warm year-round and our entire facility, including spacious change rooms, are also heated. We also have a cafe, which overlooks the pool area, and serves barista coffee and other drinks and snacks – a great place for you to relax with your other children while your child finishes their swimming lesson.

We invite you to take advantage of our Free Swimming Assessment, where we’ll gauge your child’s skills so they’re placed in the most appropriate class. Alternatively, why not enrol online.
