Pre School Learn To Swim Goals:

  • To create an atmosphere where optimum learning can occur
  • To have children as comfortable in the water as possible
  • To develop competent swimming skills
  • To make each lesson an enjoyable positive experience
  • For each child to develop at his/her own rate and move through the program slowly with kind and gentle guidance from the instructors.

Brief Aim of Pre School Learn To Swim Program

  • Confidence in the water and an introduction to immersion
  • Floating and kicking, with total immersion
  • Kicking and stroking  - front and back
