Top Kids Swimming Lessons related questions
Yes, your child should have their own bathing suit, swim goggles and swim cap. An ideal setup would be to have your own swimming pool in your home to have the lessons. If you don’t have a swimming pool in your home, your hired instructor can arrange to use a nearby public facility, like the pool in your local YMCA.
The time it takes can vary with age. Older children have better motor skills, so kids aged 3 to 5 years can learn to swim in 20 to 30 lessons. Most kids aged 6 to 9 years can learn to swim after 9 to 20 classes. Your hired instructor can give you an estimate of how much longer before your kid learns to swim after a few sessions.
Yes! If you run a business of providing kids swimming lessons but are short on staff, you can hire Taskers to fill in. Make a detailed post describing the qualifications of the Taskers you’d like to hire. Taskers fitting your description will reply with a free quote, and you can see their reviews and ratings to choose the best ones. You can further iron out the details once you’ve hired the Taskers you deem fit for the job.
Airtasker is your best bet! All you have to do is make a post on our platform with all the crucial details. Be sure to include your kid’s age, schedule, budget and, of course, your location. Airtasker will match you with qualified Taskers closest to you, and they’ll give you a free quote. You can also see reviews and ratings on them to hire the best one for your kid.
Yes! Four years old is the minimum age at which a child should learn. Kids at this age are better at listening to and following instructions, providing feedback to their instructor and retaining the lessons they’ve learned. They also have developed their cognitive and motor skills to the point that they can coordinate their body movements, making it easier for them to swim.
It would help if you looked for an instructor with the qualification, experience, and safety skills to teach kids how to swim. An instructor with some knowledge of child psychology is a good choice, especially if your child has a fear of water. Apart from their qualifications, you should check if an instructor is good with kids. You can see if they can work well with your kid by looking at their reviews and ratings from their past clients on Airtasker.

What do kids swimming lessons include?
Kids swimming lessons include all the necessary activities to teach your kid to swim using the proper techniques. This service can consist of teaching them how to breathe, float, the right way to kick with their feet and do arm strokes properly. Your hired kids swimming instructor can also teach advanced swimmers. Some instructors can train your kid for competitive swimming if necessary.
Swimming lessons: Introduction
If your kid is a beginner, your instructor can help them get comfortable with being in the water. Should your kid have aquaphobia, some instructors can help them overcome their fears. They can slowly get them to go into the water and stay in the shallow part of the pool.
Learning to breathe
Your hired kids swimming instructor can teach your kid how to breathe, whether along the surface of the water or while submerged. They can use different techniques to teach them breathing, like having them stand on the lowest step in the pool or hold them by the waist as they float.
Learning to float
Next, your instructor can have your kid spread their arms and legs as they try to float on their backs. The instructor helps them with a flotation device for the first few sessions, then removes the float. Some instructors can also teach your child to tread water with the help of a float to build their confidence. The instructor can use this or other techniques until they can float on their own.
Learning to kick
Your hired instructor can have your kid hang onto the pool’s edge and learn how to kick or have them use a kickboard. Your instructor can use this or other techniques to train your kid in the proper way to kick.
Learning to do arm strokes
After they’ve learned how to kick, your instructor teaches your kid how to do the arm strokes. They can show them how to do the proper stroke from start to finish, alternating with each arm and taking a breath after every three strokes.
Combining the lessons to swim freestyle
After all the preceding lessons, your kid puts them together and performs the basic style, known as the front crawl or freestyle. Your instructor can ask them to swim a short distance in the pool while observing their performance. They can check that they’re breathing, kicking and doing arm strokes the proper way. If anything is wrong with their technique, your instructor can give them feedback and help them improve as necessary.
This process continues until your kid can swim this style well enough. If your kid is an advanced swimmer, your hired instructor can help them with a diet and fitness regimen and train them in competitive swimming. Don’t forget; you can have the pool cleaned by an expert after the lessons!

I’m looking for a female swim instructor to teach my 4 year old girl (and possibly our 10 month old boy as well) basic swim safety and how to swim. We can use a pool in a relatives apartment complex on St Kilda Road or a local council pool. We’re located in ABBOTSFORD, VIC, 3067 so would probably go to Richmond or Collingwood pool. Also happy to go to you if you have a pool or go anywhere else you may suggest.
Wonderful! Valentina got my 4 year old to blow bubbles, put her head under the water and helped her to feel more confident in the water. Very good result for a first lesson. Valentina is was kind, patient and positive with my little girl. Also prompt and reliable. Five stars! Thank you.
