Why Choose Swim Toddlers?

Skills are attained with time and careful progression in the water. Our programme caters to your child’s development by coaching them with the best private swimming lessons for toddlers in Singapore.

In these swimming programmes, your toddler will be able to enjoy the water with a friend from class or their instructor. They will improve substantially in their social skills and knowledge of water safety. They will progress quicker than their peers who do not swim.

When these swimming lessons for two-year-olds begin, your toddler will learn how to submerge in the water on their own for a few seconds before knowing to swim towards a wall or an adult for support. When you bring your toddler to swim classes, their risk of drowning reduces significantly.

These swimming classes for toddlers are complete physical exercises that assist in the development of their hearts, lungs, and muscles. Swimming at a young age ensures that they are ahead of a toddler's typical growth of independence. They are also more outgoing with their peers and will enjoy the water.

Breakdown of Our Swim Syllabus for Toddlers

We offer a comprehensive syllabus to help toddlers develop essential swimming skills and confidence in the water. Our swimming classes for toddlers cover several key areas that are critical for your toddler’s overall swimming development:

Water Familiarisation

During the water familiarisation stage of our lessons, your toddler will be introduced to the basic concepts of being in the water, including the sensation of being in the water, the temperature and buoyancy, and basic movements and breathing techniques. Our coaches will also work with your toddler to help them feel comfortable and confident in the water, which is essential for developing their swimming skills.

By creating a safe and supportive environment, our lessons help your toddler overcome any fear or apprehension they may have about the water, allowing them to focus on enjoying the learning process and making progress in their swimming abilities.

Breath Control

Breath control is an essential skill for swimming. Through exercises such as blowing bubbles and holding their breath, your toddler will learn how to regulate their breathing and become more comfortable in the water. These techniques will help your toddler prepare for swimming and have other benefits, such as improving their lung capacity and respiratory health. 


Our lessons for toddlers include a variety of floating techniques, such as front and back floats, that aid in the development of balance and stability in the water. In addition to providing opportunities for toddlers to rest and catch their breath, these techniques allow your toddler to learn how to relax and rely on the buoyancy of the water while maintaining control of their body position.

As your toddler becomes proficient in these techniques, they will gain confidence in the water, which will set them up for success in more advanced swimming skills.


Your toddler will learn various kicking techniques during the lessons, such as flutter and dolphin kicks, which help them improve their body position in the water and propel them forward more efficiently.

By mastering these techniques, your toddler will be able to swim longer and with greater endurance. Moreover, focusing on kicking is fundamental for developing advanced swimming strokes and techniques.

Arm Strokes

To propel themselves through the water, your toddler must coordinate the movements of their arms and hands in a specific sequence. As such, mastering arm strokes as a new swimmer is essential. During the lessons, your toddler will learn arm stroke techniques such as freestyle and backstroke.


Submersions refer to the skills and techniques involved in diving and underwater swimming. They are essential for building confidence in the water and improving overall swimming ability. By learning submersion techniques, your toddler can become more comfortable and confident in the water, allowing them to progress to more advanced swimming skills.

Water Safety

Water safety skills are an essential component of any swimming program.  Our syllabus covers a variety of water safety practices, including safe entry and exit from the water, floating and treading water, and recognising and avoiding possible dangers.

Safe entry and exit techniques are essential for preventing accidents and injuries in and around the water by teaching your toddler how to enter and exit the water safely. Floating and treading water skills are also crucial for ensuring your toddler’s safety, as they allow them to stay afloat and conserve energy while waiting for help.

Play-Based Learning

Our lessons are designed to be fun and engaging for your toddler, using play-based learning techniques to make the lessons stress-free. This approach helps your toddler to learn swimming skills in a natural and enjoyable way while also developing a positive association with the water.

Patient and Supportive Instructors

Our coaches are carefully selected and trained to work with toddlers. They understand the importance of creating a safe and welcoming environment for toddlers to learn in and are patient and supportive of each toddler. This helps build trust and confidence, which is essential for learning to swim.

Small Class Sizes

We keep our class sizes small to ensure each toddler receives individualised attention and support. These private swimming lessons allows our coaches to tailor the lessons to the needs and abilities of your toddler, ensuring that they are challenged and engaged without feeling overwhelmed.

Gradual Progression

Our lessons are structured to gradually build on each other, allowing your toddler to progress at their own pace and reducing any stress or pressure. This approach ensures that your toddler is constantly challenged but not overwhelmed and allows them to develop their swimming skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Benefits of Swimming for Kids



Drowning is a leading cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4. This alarmingly high rate can happen due to kids not knowing how to swim. Learning to swim is not just a fun activity, as safety becomes a fundamental reason why your kid should start swimming today.


Children require a good amount of stamina to participate in sports or activities requiring movement. They will be able to enjoy any form of activity they would like to partake in by participating in swimming and not worrying about their stamina. With kids being generally active, swimming promotes good heart strengthening, which leads to strong cardiovascular health.

Love of Exercise

Exercising may be a chore to many who choose to take it up later in life. As a kid, growing up with a regular form of exercise will ensure that their mind sees exercise as a form of fun instead of something to dread. Swimming is a good start for them to love exercising as they will come to love being in the water.
