Location Overtoom – Swim school Zwemm teaches in small groups under the guidance of a physiotherapist and a pedagogue in Amsterdam at the Overtoom (no 283; in revalidation centre Reade) and in the Sloterparkbad, where parents can stay next to the water each lesson. The lessons are ideal for expats.
Small groups – Zwemm teaches in small groups of maximum 3 children and in groups of maximum 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.
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.
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.
Morning-, afternoon- and evening lessons – Regular lessons take place in the morning (before school), afternoon and evening (easy to combine with parents’ work)
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 is not allowed to swim. Your child develops swimming to a new hobby!”
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.
Learn to swim like your child – Your child swims better breast crawl than you do? Take a lesson together with your child and learn it as well.
