Octotots Academy

Our Octotots Academy programme for children aged 4-6 years is focused on independent swimming. Parents/carers play a much smaller role in the classes (but are still in the water), and the children are using all the skills they have learnt previously to swim without support.

These classes are also suitable for older children (5-6 years) who have had no previous swimming experience and want to learn to swim. Being older means they are able to follow instruction and listen to instructors, but still have a parent/carer in the water to help them build confidence while learning something that is completely new to them.

While in Octotots Academy classes, instructors are continually assessing children to ensure that, when they are ready, they are offered a move to our Octokidz programme which is when the parent/carers are no longer in the water.
