The Emperor Penguin class is for children who have been swimming in the Fairy Penguin or Otter class, and who have displayed an ability to follow instructions, as well as a high level of confidence in the water. Children in the Emperor Penguin level are swimming without a parent in the water for the first time. The focus of this class is on independent swimming through kicking and paddling. Your child will also be introduced to equipment such as kickboards and noodles. Water safety elements include independent safety falls and recovery. We aim for children who come from this class to move directly into a Sea Lion level where they will start to learn big freestyle arms.
