Small Class Sizes and NO distractions

Our groups are kept small so that the children can get the attention that they need to develop their skills. An additional benefit to learning at DOLPHINZ is that we only operate one lesson in the pool at a time. The children have plenty of space and they have the undivided attention of their instructor with no other distractions to interfere with learning. Preschool and beginner lessons have up to 4 children and school aged lessons have up to 5 children. We have private lessons available.

Length of lessons and length of courses

Each lesson runs for 25 minutes with a 5 minute play time between lessons to ease the transition in and out of the water. Children book in for a course of 10 lessons that are run in conjunction with the 4 school terms

SCHOOL HOLIDAY BLOCK COURSES

Every school holiday we run a 5 day school holiday block course. These are an intensive course where the children have a lesson each day for 5 days.
