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.
- Lessons are 30 minutes long
We offer four levels of lessons to four and five-year-olds:
Brand new to swim lessons. May have some fear of participating in lessons.
No fear of participating in swim lessons. Can float(relaxed body position) on front and back independently, submerge and blow bubbles (with assistance), can kick independently on front and back.
Can independently roll over float, perform deep water bob and move to shallow water, swim face in w/ scooping arms 15 ft, can self rescue.
For swimmers 5 yrs old that have completed Jellyfish 3 but not yet 6 yrs of age. This level must be registered for directly with the swim desk staff.
