Preschool-Ages 3-5 Years Saturdays 9:00am – Copy

Preschool swim lessons teach fundamental swimming skills to children ages 3 to 5. Basic skills and water safety are taught throughout the course as children are encouraged to interact with instructors in a relaxed and fun environment.

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:
1.) Swim, float, swim – sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit.
2.) Jump, push, turn, grab.

*Stage 1 – Water Acclimation: Increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.
*Stage 2 – Water Movement: Encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills performed independently.
*Stage 3 – Water Stamina: Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.
