SCHOOLS

We offer lessons to children at schools in the Midrand area. We do not charge for transport to and from the pool and fees are the same as if you brought your child to us yourself.

 

Starfish has numerous lesson options available depending on whether lessons take place on school premises or at the indoor facility in Vorna valley.

LESSONS AT THE STARFISH INDOOR FACILITY

Lessons are 30 minutes in duration and there are a maximum of 4 learners per group. We encourage 10 minutes of supervised playtime after the lesson as so much is learned and reinforced through play.

Pupils are taught the FUNdamental aquatic skills such as kicking, going under water, jumping in, swimming with floats, learning to float. Once these skills are mastered, swimmers are taught the basic strokes such as doggie paddle and breaststroke focusing on correct technique from day one.

Lessons are offered to children of 3 years or older.

Fees are charged per week and calculated per term depending on the number of weeks in that term. We generally follow the public school calendar, however this sometimes varies from school to school.

LESSONS ON SCHOOL PREMISES

During the summer months we offer lessons at schools with pools on their properties. 

Lessons are 20-25 minutes in duration and there are usually 4-6 learners per group. We encourage 5 minutes of playtime after the lesson.

We have a teacher available to teach at your school during the summer months. Pools do need to be heated to around 26 – 29 degrees either via solar, heat pumps or solar blankets. We are happy to assist with this and pool maintenance advice.

We are able to put together a programme specially tailored to your school’s requirements.  Please call us to set up an appointment.

TRANSPORT

Children are transported to and from the pool by Starfish Swim School employees who are in possession of a valid driver’s licence. We make sure that every child is strapped in with a seat belt.
