Location Overtoom – Swim school Zwemm teaches under the guidance of a physiotherapist and a pedagogue in Amsterdam at the Overtoom (283) in the pool of revalidation centre Reade and in the Sloterparkbad. The lessons are ideal for expats.
Morning-, afternoon- and evening lessons – The regular lessons are planned in the morning (before school), afternoon and evening (easy to combine with parents’ work).
Every school holiday a course – Next to regular lessons Zwemm offers swim courses every holiday. Holiday courses are independent of regular lessons. If you already follow swim lessons somewhere else; no problem. You can combine those lessons easily with our holiday courses.
Maarten and Robin: “For years we swam games and played waterpolo because we love swimming. We like to teach your child our skills, but the most important thing we want to teach your child, is our énthusiasm for swimming. At our swim school your child never cries because it must swim; it only cries when it isn’t allowed to. Your child develops swimming to a new hobby!”
Fun – Materials like goggles, flippers and other different kind of toys are used in the lessons. Children love practicing with it.
Small groups – Zwemm teaches in small groups from 4 to 5 children, so they experience less distraction and stressful stimuli from other children and they get lots of attention of the instructor, so they get their diploma faster.
Watch every lesson – As a parent or au pair you are always allowed to watch the lesson next to the water. This way you can follow improvements of your child and talk easily to your child and instructor during the lesson. You also get a good insight on how your child interacts with other children and the teacher during a lesson.
Warm water – The pool which is used at the Overtoom is a therapy pool; which means that the water of 32 °C feels warm and comfortable.
Diploma A, B and C – Swimming school Zwemm works towards the diploma A, B and C.
Every lesson the same instructor – Your child won’t experience multiple instructors, which can be stressful and confusing. Zwemm doesn’t work with temporary instructors or trainees; Maarten and Robin are the only teachers and are able to adapt the lesson to the level and personality of your child.
