Teaching method ABC

We use deepwater methodology.
Our way of teaching is mainly based on our pedagogical insight. We know the name of every child. We ask how they are doing. We use our experience to see what he or she needs. Every child is different and every child develops in his or her own way and pace. Children also learn from each other. By looking, listening to each other. By showing it to the rest.

Training program (weekend)

The swimming lessons are provided during the weekend, in the warm READE swimming pool, at Overtoom 283 in Amsterdam. The swimming pool measures 6 x 15 meters, making it very clear and safe. It feels calm and familiar for children, and for us too, for that matter. The groups consist of a maximum of 6 children and each group has its own swimming teacher. The lesson lasts 40 minutes.

Pardoes offers swimming lessons from 4 years old.

Diploma program (Wednesday)

Once the children have mastered the swimming strokes well, both in technique and strength, they can swim well under water, and they can basically do the front crawl and back crawl, they are ready to move on to the very final preparation for the diploma. We do this in another swimming pool: the Sloterparkbad. This pool has slightly colder water, is deeper and has a higher ceiling. The lanes that are swum are slightly longer than in READE, almost 25 meters.
In this pool we build strength and work on good swimming condition. For example, to be ready for the diploma, they must be able to swim two lengths with clothes on.

The lessons for the B diploma combine swimming fun with swimming safety in a unique way. The children really develop into advanced swimmers. Endurance is built by expanding swimming distances. People climb over mats, swim under them, make crazy dives, take high diving boards, swim and float underwater. Once you have obtained the B diploma, you can swim in swimming pools with attractions such as a (whitewater) slide, a wave pool and a rapids. Crazy.

Every Wednesday

The lessons for the C diploma are entirely concentrated on transforming into an accomplished swimmer. The four strokes (backstroke, breaststroke, front crawl and back crawl) are performed perfectly. The swimming condition is very good over long distances, as is the swimming safety. Survival elements are discussed during the lessons. For example, we are working towards swimming with a raincoat and shoes on. You fall off a 'boat' and are taught how to save yourself. Float, dive, jump, pry, climb, somersault! After obtaining the C diploma, you can swim independently in a swimming pool with, for example, (whitewater) slides or rapids and in open water without currents or large waves, such as recreational ponds and lakes. Really cool!
