As an introduction to the water for our younger, toddler-age swimmers and in preparation for the Red Cross Swim Kids program, Buckler Aquatics has our own exclusive ‘badge’ certification called Buckler TAD.
Introductory toddler swimming lessons in Toronto (North York, Mississauga and Scarborough) begin with making sure that the child is completely relaxed and comfortable in the water.
The TAD program provides young swimmers with a sense water orientation, building trust between the swimmer and the instructor. Using proven methods and slow, gentle persuasion, instructors introduce the major components of this level which is breath retention and breathing control.
After completion of our introductory toddler swimming lessons, our swimming lessons for kids then move to front floats, having your child holding their breath with their head under water, followed by back floats. To earn their Buckler TAD badge, the swimmer must be able to perform both a front and back float, unassisted across the width of the pool. Receiving the TAD badge is a very rewarding event for young swimmers, signifying their first achievement in the pool. Our lessons are a great way to improve a kids' confidence while swimming independently.
It’s never too early for your child to learn the basics of swimming. Call and register your toddler or older children for swimming lessons at one of our locations in Toronto today!
