Who can attend?

All children from 4 months old to 6 years old. All levels are welcome, including beginners.

Parents in the water?

For children between 4 months old and 3.5 years old, parents are with children in the water.

When children are ready to swim by themselves (normally between 2.5 - 4 years old), they become independent swimmers. 

Parents wait in the waiting area where they can see their child swim. For parent and child lessons, it's only ONE parent in the water per lesson but you can change the parent each time. 


How does it work? 

Classes are held at the same time and on the same day once a week for the duration of the term. They will be with children of similar age/ability. Lessons are 30 minutes each. Lesson are given in French and English. We always demonstrate a skill to the children (rather than just tell them), so we can teach children with different language skills in the same class.


How do we teach? 

 Our “demonstrate, encourage, applaud, repeat” philosophy is the difference between children developing skills in the water and  resisting. It is critical that teachers are in the water, so they can instruct children with their actions as well as their voices. This also builds the child’s confidence to  try new things and make significant breakthroughs. For our younger classes, we use a lot of singing and games to keep them smiling and engaged.

Why Red Whale is different?

We ONLY teach in warm water. We recognise that it is important for children to be comfortable during swimming lessons.

Our class sizes are relatively small (max 5 kids per teacher in unaccompanied lessons, and 6 in parent-child classes), and all of our teachers are always in the water to ensure that every child (or parent) receives personal attention. 


Kids are in the water and active for the entire lesson. 

We follow the teaching methodology widely used in countries like Australia, USA and the UK whereby the teachers will always demonstrate skills in the water, rather than give instructions from the side of the pool.


We create a comfortable and fun environment for children in a boutique setting.
