Pre-Mini Swimmers: A Transition from Family Lessons into Mini Swimmer Lessons Register View Cart

A Man Holding A Toddler While Swimming
This class is for children 2.5-4 years old, and is a transitional stage in aquatic development from having lessons WITH a family member (like Family Lessons) to entering into a class taught by the instructor only (like Mini 1). Our goal is to provide quality, positive instruction in a safe environment where non-swimmers can work towards being in a class working towards class independence. 
Parents will be IN the water for the first few classes, will be partially in the water for a few classes and will be OUT of the water by the last few classes. The instructor will advise on how this works from one class to the next.
Concepts that will be worked on during each swim lesson: confidence and independence while partaking in a class, willingness to use floatation aids (bubble belts and barbells) and a readiness to learn in a small group setting.  Students will learn to get their faces wet by blowing bubbles, pushing off the wall, jumps/plops, floating, basic front and back swimming. Students will also gain a basic understanding of pool safety rules. 

Max: 6 children WITH their adult
