Searching for the perfect Swim School can often be overwhelming. However, Victoria Park Pool with its comprehensive and activity-based curriculum has just made it easier. Read this article to find out the reasons why you should enrol your child now.
The classes progress at stages appropriate to your child’s age, development and ability. Infants move up stages based on their age and physical development. Whilst, preschool and primary students change classes based on their personal comfort, confidence and competence. Student learning assessment is a continual and ongoing process throughout the year to monitor this progression.
And our swimming lessons aren’t just for children, our programs cater to infants with their parents, preschoolers, primary school-aged children and adults. So anyone can learn to swim!
Our instructors are friendly and approachable and trained specifically to provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We really want to meet your family’s individual needs, answer your questions and address your concerns. Importantly our classes are lead by fully trained, accredited, licensed and insured teachers, so you can relax and enjoy the moment as your child learns a lifelong skill.
We don’t just offer a Swim School but a whole community. When learning, students need to be in a welcoming environment where they can feel appreciated and safe. It is not just our swimming instructors who are friendly and approachable, but our whole staff. When you join Victoria Park Pool you’re not only joining an aquatic and fitness centre but also a community.
Traditional swimming lessons are often command centred lessons that involve continual and let’s face it, boring laps. Here at Victoria Park Pool we’ve changed our curriculum to integrate fun, activity-based lessons that prove significantly more effective in engaging students and encouraging their personal best.
The curriculum spans seven areas of learning, each containing educational elements that are designed to enhance student development and to base the learning in real-world settings.
The areas of the curriculum include:
- Entries and Exits
- Floating and Sculling
- Movement, Propulsion and Stroke Development
- Personal Survival
- Underwater Skills
- Rescue and Emergency
- Water Safety Knowledge
The activity-based elements of the lesson make sure everyone is encouraged to participate fully, as the more time in the water practising, the quicker the learning process.
Our students are empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential-based learning. We strongly believe individual mentoring and personal guidance coupled with fun challenges work best to ensure our students actively use and enhance their learnt knowledge and skills.
Essential personal survival and water safety elements are a really important focus for our little ones whilst they are establishing strong and effective swimming techniques.
Once students are accomplished swimmers the lessons shouldn’t end there, instead they should be encouraged to look to further opportunities that instil a love of swimming in everyday life. We place significance on a pathway of learning and encourage all our students to progress their skills for life. Ultimately, they will be supported to progress through to our Optus Junior Dolphins Program but before that, we must ensure they have good water safety skills.
At Victoria Park Pool you can be sure you have picked the right Swim School! Our contemporary activity-based lessons encourage learning and will ensure your child has a great time. You won’t have to worry about dragging your kids to swim lessons because they’ll love going. Sign up here or contact one of our friendly customer service representatives on 02 9518 4800.
