• Learn to Swim Program for Pre-schoolers
    Ages 2.5- 5yrs

    4 Days/ 30 min. / $40
    Taught by Tamara Smith

    **Your child will NEVER be in a group size exceeding 4 children! Smaller class size = More individual instruction!

    Come explore, sing, submerge, float, and swim as we learn about water safety with our 2 – 5yr olds. Red Cross preschool aquatics is designed to give young children a positive, developmentally appropriate aquatic learning experience.

    Participation should not be determined by age alone. When determining if preschool aquatics is appropriate for a child consider their developmental readiness, maturity, and experience in the water. For some preschool children Parent/Child aquatics still may be appropriate, while a few may be able to go directly into our Learn to Swim Program for 5yrs+.

    LEVEL 1P: Children begin to learn elementary aquatic skills, such as blowing bubbles, personal water safety, and floating with assistance.


    LEVEL 2P: This class builds on basic aquatic skills learned in Level 1P. Most skills in this level are performed with assistance. Children continue to explore using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back.


    LEVEL 3P: This class builds on the skills learned in levels 1 and 2 by providing additional guided practice of aquatic skills at more proficient performance levels and greater distances and times. Skills in this level are performed independently. Children work on improving coordination of combined simultaneous arm and leg actions and alternating arm and leg actions.

    TOTAL IMMERSION SWIM SERIES: Our Total Immersion Swim Series is designed to train children age 3-5yrs to swim comfortably underwater in 8 lessons. Kids enrolled in total immersion will work hard for 1 hour/day for 8 Days. (Tuesday-Friday) This series will only be offered in May & Early June.

     

     

  • I am SO GRATEFUL to you for your swimming lessons! My daughter was literally crying the whole drive over to her first swimming lesson with you (she had a not fun swim class experience at the Y) and still was crying as we got into the pool. I was getting myself set for another failure in the swim lesson realm for us, and was trying to wrap my brain around how my husband and I were going to pull off teaching her ourselves. Within five minutes-- I am not being dramatic, really five minutes-- she was laughing and having a great time. She left the pool that day saying, and I quote \"That was fun! I LOVE my swim class!\". Since then she asks me every day if today is the day she will get to go back to her swim class. That is nothing short of a miracle in my book. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
