WaterExplorer™ Children Swimming Classes

(Pre-Swimming program for children (3-6 years))

Waterfun Aquatic Centre’s WaterExplorer™ Children Swimming Classes in Singapore are a great way to introduce for your little tots to water! The WaterExplorer™ Children Swimming Lessons are our very own waterplay-and-learn program that encourages little ones to explore water in a supervised setting and learn the essential pre-swimming and drownproofing skills e.g. bubbling, floating, immersion and paddling, as well as water safety. A unique and one-of-a-kind type of program, all our WaterExplorer™ Coaches are internationally qualified and specially trained in-house to conduct these special swimming lessons for children.

“For a young child, play is important work. I can see that the WaterExplorer™ program engages the child in purposeful play so that she learns without realising she is learning. That is great for young children.”

Important notes:

  • Since each learner’s progression is different, we urge parents to accommodate to their child’s pace of growth. Feel free to approach our friendly coaches for feedback or tips to improve your child’s progress.
  • We conduct close monitoring to assess each learner’s progress and will adjust the learner’s grouping based on his development to ensure all our students realize their full potential.
