There are a variety of different course types and levels available.
In the Summer and Easter holidays, an intensive fortnight of tuition with the students swimming every day,
Monday to Friday, is held. Weekly lessons run during term time, for children at school, classes are held
daily after school and on Saturday mornings. Classes are also offered for parents and babies and pre-school children
during the day and for adults in the mornings and evenings.
Studies have found that children who started swimming lessons from a young age had
advanced motor development, social skills and intelligence. Water helps improve co-ordination and balance as well
as exercising more muscles. Learning to respond to the instructions also helps them develop mentally and increases
levels of understanding.
Teachers are in the water with the class and this builds confidence as well as
ensuring that the correct technique is performed by the pupil. Pupils learn the correct way all the time as mistakes
are able to be corrected immediately.
Another feature of the Easy 2 Swim School is that personal survival and water
safety is taught from day one regardless of age. Parent and Baby classes allow an ideal introduction to the water and
children are taught by themselves from as young as 2 years old how to be safe which means peace of mind for parents.
Death by drowning is the third biggest cause of accidental death in the UK so this is a vital part of the lesson.
We start formal lessons from age to 2 onwards, all classes are kept small with a maximum of 4 pupils per teacher in a teaching class. New to lesson swimmers are often nervous as the swimming environment is quite different from other learning environments in that it takes place in water and this can very often be daunting for the new swimmer and parents alike. Our teachers endeavor to settle pupils, and parents, as quickly as possible to build a relationship of trust as soon as we can as this is crucial to the learning process. As our lessons are based on a progressive format, one lesson leading into the next, it is very important to attend them all as this way the swimmer will be able to utilize the skills taught on a regular basis, build muscle memory and most important of all confidence and this takes time.
We have lessons for all ages and levels, from those first few splashy kicks to faces in and then onto furthering the technique in all four strokes, with starts and turns. Many of our swimmers represent their schools and clubs so all levels are catered for, including adults wanting to take the plunge for the first time or to improve fitness and technique for triathlons or personal fitness.
Swimming is a life skill and takes time to master but is so vital, we take life saving skills very seriously as sadly drowning is the third biggest cause of accidental death in the UK of children under the age of 16. We start these vital skills from the very first lesson and build on them through the years so our swimmers become proficient in treading water, floating, etc. Older pupils are also taught lifesaving and CPR.
Our formal lessons start at 2 and we try to teach your child to swim as soon as they are able whilst teaching correct technique at their level. All our activities and drills encourage pupils to concentrate, use controlled movements and aid overall co-ordination, skills that are vital for all sports.
Swimming is also extremely beneficial for pupils with special needs as the increased resistance in the water builds muscle tone, this is true for all pupils. Swimming also aids development of motor skills, physical fitness and as class sizes are kept small, no more than 4 pupils per teacher, enables pupils to remain focused as well as allowing for interaction. Lessons run for 20 minutes as they are intense due to the small classes and pupils are therefore able to concentrate for the entire lesson. We encourage pupils to play in the water, within reason, to develop confidence when they are awaiting their turn.
We teach adults of all ages and abilities. For the very nervous non swimmer we have our Water Confidence Course which is the very first stage in the learning to swim programme. For adults who are water confident and wish to learn to swim or improve their technique we offer our technique based classes.
