PRESCHOOL SWIM LESSONS

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

Swim, float, swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit

Jump, push, turn, and grab.

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

SWIM LESSONS

learning the SWIM BASICS

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • Swim, float, swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit
  • Jump, push, turn, grab
 
Our 30-minute Preschool Swim Basics program is split into 3  stages:
 
  • Preschool 1– Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.
  • Preschool 2– In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing to practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.
  • Preschool 3– In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.
