STAnley

At the age of two and half years your children can learn to swim with our instructors in a fun environment, where they can get used to the water-based lesson environment without their parents. They will be taught how to position themselves in the water and how to transport themselves from one side to another, with the added enjoyment of singing songs and playing fun games.
