Swim Program

Swimming and Aquatic Education Classes

Children enrolled at Cuddly Bear Templestowe are offered weekly swimming classes at the indoor heated, swimming centre – Westerfold Swim Centre during your child’s attendance. This program saves families time, it frees up your weekend and takes pressure of families to take part in extra curriculum programs.

This program is an excursion, families are asked to complete excursion forms, Cuddly Bear Templestowe completes a detailed risk assessment which can be accessed at any time.

When your child is 3yrs or over and is fully toilet trained, you can enrol them to have weekly 30 minute swimming classes during the day they attend Cuddly Bear.

The preschool classes are all about water confidence and then gaining the subsequent skills to move independently and most importantly, confidently through the water. The friendly, qualified teachers use flotation intermittently throughout the class to assist the kids in this process. Jumping in, dog paddling, facial submersion, blowing bubbles and back floats are what the teachers are looking to see before they start teaching the four main swimming strokes.

Limit of 4 children per class. We currently offer the program 2 days per week. Enrolments are taken at the beginning of each term. Please enquire at Cuddly Bear for more information.
