– Parent please help your child with this: 1 drop is enough.

7. Unlike the large public swimpools, at our swimschool each child always has his/her own personal dressingroom that can be locked.
We organised it in a way that next to every dressingroom is an “empty” dressingroom.

The interior/facilities in the accommodation are conform the Protocol, date 15 June 2020, version 1.6  

Teaching is done conform the Protocol, date 10 March, version 3.0 

We removed 4 lounge chairs + de childrens play-corner.

For the duration of the Corona-period we created a temporay “landing” to use as waiting-area during the transsition of lessons (see pictures below).

Between the seats in the waiting-room 1,5 meter distance.
But also between the seats cough-shields (see picture below).

Markings on the floor.

In the waitingroom we always have an extraction system. In this phase the extraction system is in the highest position (therefore slightly more “noise” in the background).
In the waitingroom we normally have one of our doors open ajar as much as possible. In this phase one of the doors is open ajar for ventilation permanent.

In our swimpool we always have beside an extraction system also ventilation in the swimpool (see below  Hygiene, Safety and Water Quality Bathing and Swimming Facilities Act (Whvbz and Bhvbz).

In good weather you can – as always – sit outside on our patio (see picture below)

We have – since the existence of our swimming school – complied with the Hygiene, Safety and Water Quality Bathing and Swimming Facilities Act (Whvbz and Bhvbz). We are monitored for this by the Province, the Central Holland Environment Agency (ODMH) and Omegam / GGD. Think of checking / on: UV installation, flow rate of the water, chlorine installation, water quality, legionella, safe and hygienic equipment (including: material changing rooms, material of floors), extraction system, ventilation, etc.

We work according to the guidelines: “Veilig Zwemmen in Coronatijd Hygiëne en Desinfectie in Badinrichtingen“, version 8 date 1 July 2020.
In this phase all swimpools must have – amongst others – the double amount of chloric.
