Starfish (3 years old)

Ages: 3 year olds

Three-year-olds are special. They are old enough to begin learning to swim without having a parent in the water with them. But they are still in the early stages of cognitive and co-ordinative development.

Our program for three-year-olds is designed to meet them at their level of development: to create the trust relationship so crucial to teaching anyone to swim, to engage them in swimming as a fun and rewarding activity, and to introduce them to and help them master the water safety awareness and in-water skills that every child should have.

IMPORTANT: Children 4 years old and younger, even if potty trained, must ABSOLUTELY wear reusable swim diapers. These can be purchased here or at your local Target or Walmart.
