Ann’s Aqua World – Boksburg swimming lessons

Ann's Aqua 1st lesson

Ann's Aqua baby pool

We do not have a swimming pool at home but a top priority for us was to get our children water safe and able to swim.  When Fjord was 2 we took him to swimming lessons in Boksburg but after enjoying the 1st class it was all downhill from there.  The swim school which we attended teach according to the forced submergence principle and that simply didn’t work for us.  Instead of looking forward to classes he became highly anxious and stressed about going to swimming lessons.  The lady who gave those classes gave an impression of not being particularly fond of children and she radiated tension.  We then took a 2 year break (probably much too long).  I made several enquiries and was told about Ann’s Aqua World in East Village, Sunward Park, Boksburg.  Fjord was 4 when he started there.  One philosophy of the swim school is that children learn to swim at their level of comfort and there is no forced submergence.  Fjord has loved the classes since the 1st lesson and now swims relatively well, he recently turned 6 and I foresee that we will continue with his lessons for quite some time, mainly because he loves going so much and of course because the longer he goes the more he will improve.

Ann and her daughter Nicole are the swimming teachers, not only are they good at what they do but they seem genuinely fond of the children and their warm natures make the little ones feel comfortable and happy.  Acacia started lessons this season (she recently turned 3), from the 1st class she was happy and relaxed, in fact she smiled the whole way through.

Ann’s Aqua World has 2 indoor heated pools, one for babies and a big one.  Acacia is already in the big pool.  I was a little uncertain when I saw that parents are only allowed inside to watch at the 1st lesson of every month but actually that is a good idea and works.  The children are not distracted by parents and focus more on what they are doing, there has been zero stress when I have walked out of the class once they are in the pool.

Also watching only 1 lesson a month the progress is very clear to see from month to month.


Acacia also goes to piano lessons and Fjord is learning violin with John Skinner in Parkdene, Boksburg
