From a very nervous 4 year old on the first day I was amazed Kate even got our daughter in the water on her own. But the style of teaching is just the right balance fun structured swimming activities but firm encouragement. Learning to swim is so much about confidence and Kate gives constant reassurance that as long as you try you will get better every time. This gives the children confidence that she is in control and they need to trust her. You only need to go a couple of times to see the results!
