Frequently Asked Questions

Learn to Swim Programs

  • My child is 3.5 years old, can he/she join your Learn-to-Swim Program?

    For safety reasons, our minimum age is 4 years old (based on calendar month).

  • Currently, my child is learning in ACS Barker. We have 5 lessons remaining. Recently, we have moved nearer to Methodist Girl School (MGS). It is more convenient for us to attend the lessons at MGS. Can we transfer the balance lessons over?

    We do not allow change of venue and classes mid-way through the term as this will disrupt the learning of the child and hamper his/her progress. You may request for a location change for the next term.

  • Do you have trial lessons?

    We do not have trial lessons but we have a complimentary 5 minutes swimming assessment which you can sign up for. Alternatively, you may also view our swimming classes on the weekends.

  • Should my child miss the first lesson, can we pro-rate the fees?

    No pro-rate or make up for the lesson will be arranged unless child is absent due to medical reasons (please provide medical certificate to arrange for make up lesson)

  • Why can’t my child stick to the same coach after each term?

    Each coach has his or her strengths and specialized teaching techniques. Our emphasis is on the child’s swimming ability, not attachment to coaches. This will also help to train a child’s adaptability to different coaching styles.

  • Can I have my choice of instructor for swimming lessons?

    We exercise evaluation and supervision over for all instructors, thus having confidence in the teaching and professionalism of all its instructors. Therefore, we do not practice the pre-arrangement of selection between Instructors and Students. You may register for a private class if it is necessary.

  • What does my child have to bring for swimming lessons?

    Each child is required to bring a personal pair of goggles and kickboard for every lesson.

  • What is the class size for swimming lessons (students to instructor ratio)?

    1 coach to 6 students

  • What happens if it rains before my child’s swimming lesson starts?

    Parents are advised to bring their children to respective locations because classes will be held rain or shine. If lightning alert is activated, land stroke correction exercises will be conducted for a maximum of 30 minutes before students are dismissed.
