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. Lessons for children three years old are 30 minutes long.
IMPORTANT: Children 4 years old and younger, even if potty trained, must ABSOLUTELY wear I-play approved reusable, swim diapers. These can be purchased through I-play on-line or at your local Target or Walmart. These are reusable swim diapers.
