We take children from 4 years once they are able to:

Float with armbands without an adult supporting them in the water.

Mature enough to take part in a group lesson without a parent being beside them in the water.

This is a requirement otherwise they will become too upset :'( and nobody wants this to happen. Please forward us your contact number when your child is able for the above criteria and hopefully we will be able to get you started soon enough.
