Beginner Learn to Swim (BLTS) swimming classes begin from 2 years of age. This level is designed to provide your child with the fundamental survival skills needed to be safe in the water. Class sizes are small (two students to one teacher). Our instructors strive to create a trusting and nurturing relationship with each student. The lessons introduce vital skills such as blowing bubbles, kicking, doggie paddling, floating, submerging, jumping in and learning to safely enter and exit the water by themselves. Upon mastering the components in the BLTS level, students will progress to the Advanced learn to swim level!
Swim lessons run for the duration of 30 minutes at the scheduled time each week for the duration of the relevant term: Choose from 1, 2 or even 3 lessons per week.

“We are very impressed with the overall service. The teachers really know what they are doing and we have seen such an improvement in Charlie’s swimming. We are very grateful for everything and would highly recommend Mermaid’s to others.”
