Swim and Survival Academy

Learn to Swim - Preschoolers five and under


Kinder Kids is our special Learn to Swim program that runs Mon-Fri mornings from 9.00 – 11.30 and is tailored specifically to meet the needs of 3-5 year old pre-school children. With this age group, we focus on using fun games, toys and activities to help children learn swimming and survival skills while having an awesome time.

Our Kinder Kids program is a fun, fully supervised and structured session that will challenge and enhance your child’s physical abilities, build their confidence, flexibility all while they learn valuable swimming and survival skills.

Classes are generally smaller, meaning they get the additional support they need and can progress faster.

Benefits of younger children swimming in the morning include:

  1. Kinder Kids concentrate better in the mornings.
  2. It is much quieter in the morning so there are less distractions.
  3. Children will be with other students their own age instead of potentially older school-aged children.
  4. “Kinder Kids” is lots of fun with new and exciting toys being added all the time specifically for our 3-5 year old swimmers.
  5. The teachers will play games and motivate the kids to try hard using age appropriate toys and activities.
  6. All our beginner “Kinder Kids” classes have a maximum of 4 students meaning they will receive the additional support to help them thrive.

Our kinder program is proof that learning can be easy and fun, and ensures your children develop a future love of the water. Here’s what some of our parents think about the program:

“The instructors give the kids lots of praise and encouragement which helps with the kids self-esteem. Riley loves playing on the slide and blow up animals at the end of the lesson!”

“Before Garth started he was not confident in the water. He would not lay on his back or blow bubbles. Emmett was not confident in deep water. Now both boys cannot wait until their swimming lessons each week. I would and do recommend SSA to other parents as the staff are great and very helpful.”
