Our Teaching Philosophy & Methods
Safe Swim is an educational and childhood development center that specializes in aquatic skills. At Safe Swim our teaching philosophy is rooted in accessibility and childhood development. We believe that all people should learn to swim in an environment where they feel safe, included and celebrated.
Traditionally, an authoritative approach to swim instruction has been a popular approach in learn-to-swim community. Typically the teacher tells the swimmer what to do and the swimmer is forced or expected to participate without regard to the swimmer’s fears, apprehensions or discomfort. For example, a swimmer will be expected to go underwater, even if they are not ready, or a baby is forced on their back to float even though they are petrified and crying. We recognize that each swimmer has bodily autonomy, unique developmental needs, and fears or concerns that are to be respected in each lesson.
We do not force swimmers to participate with aggressive teaching methods that subject swimmers to pain, fear or distress. Because of our unique play-based methods, choice and collaboration are built into each lesson so that the swimmer has the chance to co-create the lesson within the parameters of our objectives and goals.
Another essential component of our philosophy is that children learn through play. We utilized play-based instruction in our classes to reach class objectives. We employ the use of songs, movement, music, roleplay, and exploration in class for swimmers to learn intuitively and tear free. This method works wonders for our students, especially swimmers who are anxious or afraid, swimmers with neurodivergence, swimmers with abundant energy and young swimmers.
Our curriculum is designed to help swimmers of all levels develop the skills they need to swim safely and confidently. We offer a comprehensive program that includes beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.
Our instructors work closely with each student to ensure that they are progressing at their own pace and are reaching their full potential.
