About Pre-School Swimming Lessons:

Experienced teachers

Our teaching methods have been continuously finetuned since Hilton Brown opened for business in 1973 – that’s over 40 years of development. Consequently, we’re recognised for our high success rate with young swimmers. Every one of our pre-school swimming teachers is fully-trained to deliver safe, effective lessons.

Continuous Progress

Initially children learn how to be happy in and under the water. As they progress they learn how to safely enter and exit the pool, kick, turn around, roll onto their backs to float and swim back to the side. The emphasis is on basic water skills that prepare the way for learning how to swim. 1. Squid (Beginner) 2. Penguin 3. Seal 4. Polar Bear (Competent Swimmer) Our pre-school swimming programme moves children through four levels of learning, from beginner to competent swimmer.

Fun is as important as learning

Children look forward to their swimming lessons at Hilton Brown because we make sure it’s an enjoyable experience. Our teachers provide positive feedback and know how to keep their customers happy in the pool.

Stringent safety

Pre-school swim classes have a ratio of four children to one teacher. For safety, we ensure that children can stand with their heads above the water when they’re not swimming. There is always a qualified first aider with certified CPR skills on site.

Social skill development

Children look forward to their Hilton Brown swim classes. We make sure they’re having fun and making friends. They also learn about safe and considerate swimming pool behaviour.

    “My son Alexander (4 ½) has been coming to Hilton Brown for two years. When he started he wasn’t overly confident in the water and in particular didn’t like to put his head under. He now loves being in the water and has learnt to swim freestyle and backstroke. Each week he looks forward to his lessons, which not only teach him swimming skills but are also fun. I now feel reassured that Alexander can confidently navigate his way around a swimming pool.”

    “We have been coming to Hilton Brown for over five years and would highly recommend them to anyone considering swimming lessons for their child. The service is friendly, the coaches professional and most importantly, my children are now confident and capable in the water!”
