$84 for Eight All-Ages Group Swimming Lessons ($168 Value)
Certified in the Buckler Method, instructors help kids aged 6 months and up find their sea legs in the centre's large temperature-controlled pools, kept at about 33 degrees Celsius. An initial individual assessment of each child helps determine what level of class the student should be in. After assigning kids to a session, the instructors begin coaching them to refine their strokes and water-safety skills, giving individual feedback in a group environment. They evaluate swimmers weekly and encourage their charges to proceed and learn at their own pace. Lifeguards constantly supervise the deck and pool, and a room with one-way viewing class provides a quiet place for parents to watch their children learn.
Buckler Aquatics' Red Cross certified swim instructors teach kids ages six months and up the ways of the water in two large, clean, heated pools. For their youngest charges, they use the Buckler Method, a style of teaching designed for babies.
The instructors assign all swimmers to classes based on ability, providing individualized instruction in a group setting. They focus on encouragement and simple technique corrections, allowing each swimmer to proceed at his or her own pace. Parents can observe all the pool fun through a one-way window adjacent to the pool, or join in the splashing during monthly free family swims.
