Preschool – Floaters

Preschool – Floaters

The Preschool lessons are divided into six levels. They provide an introduction to swimming skills using proven, achievable, and age-appropriate progressions. Games and challenges are incorporated into each lesson, keeping the children active and enthusiastic in the water, while maintaining a program that is lively and fun.

It is the intent of the Floaters level to orient the beginner to water, assist him or her to experience the buoyant qualities of water, introduce elementary movement skills, and develop comfort and confidence in the water.

Children from 3 to 5 years-old will learn core skills such as bobs, front float, back float, jumping into water, assisted, putting face in water through progressions, and 10 seconds surface support. They will also practice their endurance through 10m front and back swim with PFD, 3m front and back glide, with buoyant aid metres.
