Preschool Swim Lessons (ages 3-5)

(Ages 3-5) Our preschool swim lessons introduce water propulsion, floating, body awareness and independence, all while focusing on water safety and drowning prevention. We introduce a few basic swim strokes: front crawl, back crawl and butterfly.

On the first day of class, instructors will determine the starting “stage” for your child and place them into the appropriate lesson group. From there, children progress at their own pace through the four preschool stages. Progression levels include:

Level 1: Water Acclimation

  • Encourages children to explore their aquatic environment with instructors’ help
  • Teaches basic aquatic and boating safety, and how to exit in the event of falling into a body of water


Level 2: Water Movement

  • Focuses on body position and control, forward movement and directional change.
  • Encourages children to propel themselves and glide through water
  • Teaches basic water safety skills in the form of jump, push, turn and grab, and swim-float-swim


Level 3: Water Stamina

  • Teaches rotary movement with breathing in the form of side-glide recovery position
  • Encourages forward movement on the front and back and swimming longer distances
  • Teaches safety techniques in deep water and how to swim to safety


Level 4: Stroke Introduction

  • Teaches the front crawl, back crawl and butterfly strokes
