PRESCHOOL LEVEL 1
Beginner 3-5 years
Required Skills: Children entering this level need no experience. This class is open to all beginner swimmers.
Goals for Class:
- Learn water safety: floating, listening, entering/exiting water, etc.
- Learn to swim on front, back and underwater.
- Encourages motor, social, emotional and language development.
- Upon completion of this level, your child will be able to swim 5ft unassisted on front and back, demonstrate water safety skills, as well as show their new found comfort and confidence in the water.
If you have a child that is fearful or hesitant of the water, no worries. Our team of well trained teachers can handle anything! Seriously! It is usually harder on nervous parents than it is on the kids. We would like to introduce the fearful children to lessons in a more intimate setting, so please call us so that we can arrange a FREE one-on-one before enrolling them in a group class. It is important that we give you the best experience possible, and we will do everything possible to ensure that.
How fast will my child learn?
Parents must also keep realistic expectations of their child’s progression in class. Every child moves and his/her own pace. This is how they build the appropriate relationship with the water. It’s important to celebrate what looks like small victories i.e. blowing bubbles, kicking on their own, submersions, etc. Though it might look like small progress to you, those are big moments in the learn-to-swim world!
