Jellyfish (4 & 5 years old)

Ages: 4 and 5 year olds

Four and five-year-old children have significantly more coordination than three-year-olds. (And they should. After all, they’re 33% to 66% older!). But they are still in relatively early stages of cognitive and co-ordinate development.

Our program for four and five-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
  • 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.
