For my toddler / preschooler

ENJOY SOME ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH YOUR TODDLER AND HELP THEM LEARN TO SWIM. SOLS IS THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT TO ACHIEVE THIS!

The most important advice that we can offer you is to be relaxedsmilebe happy and enjoy your toddlers swimming lessons. Whether it’s singing and splashing or learning some important swimming techniques, we want you both to find enjoyment in the lesson. You know your toddler best so being with you is the best way for them to become at ease in the water. If your toddler is struggling or distracted, you know how to comfort them and guide them in a different direction. There is more than one way to learn most things and our teachers are more than happy to work with you.

Consideration of what to bring

~ Regular nappy for after their lesson (if required)

~ Swim nappy if under the age of 3 years old or not fully toilet trained (Tip: swimming nappies do not hold liquids well, change your child into their swimming nappy directly before the lesson starts. Have an extra swim nappy handy in the event of an accident.)

~ Clean swimwear (Tip: Rash tops can make your toddler cold! Although they keep them warmer in the water, as soon as they get out, they instantly have a cold and wet material clinging to their bodies. We suggest firm fitting swimwear as it will help your child perform correctly.)

~ Change of clothes

~ Towel (Tip: We recommend bringing two towels just in case there are any accidents!)

~ After swim snack and drink (Tip: Your toddler will most likely be hungry when they get out of the pool.)

~ Clean swimwear (Tip: wear a loose fitting top in the pool, this will make it easy for your child to hold onto you. Come dressed in your swimwear it will save you having to get changed before the class.)

~ Change of clothes (Tip: If you live close by you may find it easier to throw something over your bathers and get changed at home once you have settled your child.)

~ Thongs (Tip: wear thongs in wet areas to stop the spread of bacteria from your feet)

~ Towel (Tip: have an extra towel handy, it’s nice to have a dry towel to absorb all the water.)

~ Drink bottle (Tip: feel free to keep your drink bottle by the side of the pool, just make sure it’s plastic.)
