Dive into a world where your preschoolers (3-5 years old) navigate the waters of Sydney with confidence and joy!

Nereids Aquatic Coaching unveils a uniquely tailored private swimming lesson experience, ensuring your little ones not only embrace the thrill of swimming but also internalise crucial water safety skills.

Embrace Comprehensive Water Safety

Whether it's their first splash or they’re tiny seasoned swimmers, each lesson is meticulously crafted to respect and expand upon your child’s existing knowledge and comfort level in the water.

Our mission? To transcend basic swim skills and instill a lifelong, safety-first water mentality.

Personalised Swim Journeys for Every Child

We recognize every child brings a unique wave of personality and skill to the pool. Thus, our private swimming lessons for preschool children are not one-size-fits-all.

They’re adapted to mirror the individual needs, character, and competencies of your child, ensuring a supportive, effective, and joyful learning environment.

Why Nereids?

Our commitment swims beyond mere swimming proficiency.

We anchor our teachings in empowering your preschoolers with the capabilities to not only be safe but to confidently enjoy and explore all watery adventures Sydney’s environments have to offer.

Fast-Track Your Preschooler’s Swim Success with Nereids

Pave the path for your preschoolers to become adept swimmers and water-safe kids with Nereids, where every swim lesson is a ripple towards a sea of confident water exploration!


Our swim school offers the Nereids Aquatic Coaching Doto™ and Nereids Aquatic Coaching Proto™ private swimming lesson programs for Sydney's preschool swimmers.



The Nereids Aquatic Coaching Doto™ swimming program is designed for confident young swimmers who are willing to put their head beneath the water.

Its purpose is to teach our preschool students the following principles:

  • Keep themselves safe in case of an accidental fall into the waterways
  • Learn how to safely enter and exit the pool
  • General water safety knowledge (how to ask for help while being in the water, basic survival skills, how to react to dangers while swimming in the pool or the seawater etc.)
  • Familiarise them with the fundamentals of the four main swimming strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly kicking)
  • Diving techniques 


The Nereids Aquatic Coaching Proto™ swimming lesson program aims at assisting our preschool children who are not willing to put their heads under the water, either because they cannot (due to health or other reasons) or because they do not feel confident yet.

As in the Doto program, our main focus is to promote and establish water safety rules. The basic difference between the two programs has to do with the swimming styles that are taught: The only breaststroke with the head above the water (recreational breaststroke) is included in the Proto program.

There are three main goals of the Nereids Aquatic Coaching Proto™ program:

  • To increase the levels of our student's confidence when they are in the water
  • To make our students enjoy the water without forcing them to put their face under the water
  • To give them a gradual feeling of progression and achievement

The ultimate goal of the Proto swimming program is to gradually move these students to the Doto lesson program, but only when they are ready for that.


Overall objectives

Swimming lessons for preschool children are extremely important for their water safety as well as their future growth since their swimming skills could be practised for the rest of their lives.

Nereids Aquatic Coaching teachers have the experience to fulfil all the following objectives for the kids when our swimming programs are completed:

  • Enhance water safety awareness
  • Provide them with water familiarisation skills
  • Assist them to overcome any fear of water they might have
  • Make them familiar with the fundamentals of all four swimming strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly kicking)

Above all, we create a fun atmosphere throughout the whole teaching process and treat the kids with great patience. Our teachers always adapt their lessons plans to each student's strengths and special needs while increasing their feeling of confidence in the water.

Two years I have tried to teach my kids to swim from one school to another. I regret the money I have wasted . It took three lessons 90 minutes each for my kids to swim independently . Thank you for the team of Nereids.

I highly recommend Nereids! My daughter who has autism learnt more in her first 45 minute lesson with Conner than 18 months at another swim school that was meant to be for children with additional needs.
