    Depends on the swim school.

    The baby lessons at our swim school are about building their confidence. Songs and paddling (while being held) towards a toy thrown just in front of them. Or jumping from the side into the parents arms etc. Our swim school teaches to blow bubbles in the water not hold their breath. You have to go in with them.

    But at just over 2.5yrs my twins were able to go to the lessons with the teacher on their own which is more about learning how to swim.

    You just need a swimming costume and a towel and swimming nappy if she is still in nappies. Goggles if you want but not compulsory. Our swim school has swimming caps as compulsory but they give them out when you pay for the lessons.

    Default swimming lesson question

    How old is your DD? My two started at 6 months but have been in and out for years. Most places we have been to only get the parents in the pool for 2-3 years. And everywhere I've been swimming caps and goggles are optional although where they are now they make the kids take off their goggles often as well, so they get used to it. Most kids don't really wear them until they are school aged though.

    Default Re: swimming lesson question

    Our DD is 2 next week

    We have her booked in now and no goggles or cap necessary.

    They too said they teach kids to blow bubbles underwater but wont b for sometime yet so im comftable with that. I just want to do anything i can to increase her safety in and around water.

    She starts next week and DH can even come as the class is early in evening
