Why should we learn to swim?
New Zealand is an island nation. We are no more than 40 minutes to a beach, river, lake or stream. A lot of our recreational activities are water based and being able to swim will ensure that you and your child can safely be part of the fun.
All of the children in Tohora nui are at different stages with their swimming. You may find some of these videos helpful, as you encourage your child to feel safe and confident in the water.
The best way to help your child with water confidence, is being in the pool with them.
