In our second course we focus on breaststroke and in this group the children stay until they can swim 10 meters or more with good technique. We also practice crawl and backstroke during the course. Some children attend this course more than once, while others go straight to Step 3. Remember that every child is different. We look at the individual and the development of each child.
Also in this course you as a parent are in the water. You will have the chance to follow the child’s development closely and be part of the child’s development in the water. In the swimming school groups we have a maximum of 8 children per instructor, of course there are fewer in our smallest pools.
