ages 3 - 4 maximum 3 pupils per group
Adults are still welcome to be in the pool for this age group. Every child is different and the main factor to consider is whether the child is ready to enjoy the lesson without a parent or a guardian in the water.
Armbands and floatation aids are used for non-swimmers to enable the child to move independently. The lesson is without nursery rhymes but structured to practice front and back paddle, floatation, submersion and jumping into the pool from poolside. We teach children to practice turning to swim back to hold the poolside. This a safety practice as in the event of a child falling into water they will then have the natural reaction to return to the point of safety.
