  • Both my kids learnt to swim at school, when they were 4 is when they started. Your boy will learn at his own pace, he may not be as confident as others, doesn’t mean he’s behind

  • My boys started lessons when the first was 2 and the second was 1. Both could swim underwater/be able to take a breath and swim to the side for safety at 3-3.5years. Next bubba will start in summer when she is 11months.

    I guess the earlier they start the more confidence they have. We also have a fab teacher and small classes of 7 kids. Those things may be factors!!

  • I have two boys 4 and 5 and the 4 year old can swim a bit but the 5 year old isn’t anywhere near ready. he’s not confident at all in the water.

  • My daughter took water confidence lessons when she was four and learnt to swim at age 5.
