    Actual swim classes, would have to say at 3yrs. There's also Mummy/Baby classes from 18mths, which is to overcome fear etc. But if you have access to a pool, would just take your little one to the pool regularly, with a bunch of bath toys and watering can.

    hi carang,

    I also live in Sai Kung and am looking for a swimming course for my son who will turn to 3 y.o. in Aug. Would you please PM me your swimming instructor's contact details? Is she a HK Chinese? TIA!!
