Specifically designed for preschool children, these classes give children the opportunity to be independent and promote water skills. Students are introduced to kicking, breathing, floating, submerging, safety and early stroke development. Children learn to become more independent in the water and develop important water survival skills. 

Children will learn skills in:

  • Body orientation
  • Propulsion and submersion
  • Basic stroke development
  • Personal and water safety.

Our swimming teachers

Our teachers hold nationally accredited swimming teacher and water safety certificates. They have current CPR and first aid certificates, and have training in safeguarding children and young people.

Program levels

Teachers assess and progress children through the program levels, based on their individual ability.
