Our classes are based on The Royal Lifesaving Swim and Survive methodology.

Lesson progression

Children enrolled in parent and toddler lessons progress based on the child’s age. Pre-school and school aged children may progress at any time throughout the year. Observations and evaluations will be made by teachers and Webstar’s Swim School staff.

You will be advised when your child is ready to progress to the next level. Your child will receive a certificate as recognition of their achievement. If you want feedback on your child’s progress at any time, please talk to their teacher or a Webstar’s Swim School staff member.
