When will my child move into the next group? 

Children are continually assessed.  When a teacher thinks your child is ready, they will ask for them to be assessed and may then move up a stage when the next space becomes available.  Feedback will then be provided after the assessment should further improvements be needed.

How long will it take for my child to pass each Stage? 

This will vary with every child. If a child has the experience of pre-school or adult and child sessions then he / she may move faster initially through the lower stages, as they will be familiar with the environment and possibly more confident in the water. We actively encourage parents to swim with the child out of our lessons to build water confidence, not just progress through the stages.

Why might children be having FUN instead of swimming widths or lengths? 

To learn how to swim, children need to master skills that will help them float, breathe and move around in the water.
Through games, children have FUN and learn important skills. If children are having FUN they enjoy what they are doing and often learn faster.
The NPTS has a multi skills approach so all the skills that are learnt lead to development of a competent and confident swimmer, who is safe and happy in the water.

How do I know what stage my child is? 

You can find a list of the outcomes for each stage on the Swim School Stages link.

How do I register my child?
