Preschool Swim Program

PRESCHOOL LEVELS (2-5 years) Give your child a head start on learning to swim. The Lifesaving Society Preschool Program develops an appreciation and healthy respect for the water before these kids get in too deep. In our aquatic progressions, we work to ensure 2 to 5 year olds become comfortable in the water and have fun acquiring and developing a foundation to water skills. We incorporate the Lifesaving Society Water Smart education in all preschool levels.

These preschoolers will have fun learning to love the water! We will help them to jump into chest-deep water and teach them to float and glide on their front and back. They will become comfortable getting their faces wet, blowing bubbles and holding their breath in the water. All skills in this level will be completed with the assistance of their instructor!

These preschoolers learn to jump into chest-deep water by themselves! They will learn to submerge and exhale underwater unassisted and do front and back floats and glides for longer periods of time with assistance. They will begin to incorporate the rollover sequence on both their front and back with assistance.

These youngsters will be jumping in and exiting the water all by themselves by the end of the session! They will recover objects from the bottom of waist-deepwater and perfect their front-to-back and back-to-front rollovers. By the end of the level, they will be expected to float unassisted on both their front and back, complete a front swim with arms taking a roll over breath and kick unassisted on their back.

Advanced preschoolers will now know how to jump into deeper water and safely get themselves out! These super swimmers will develop their kicking on their front with arms and back kicking unassisted with roll over breathing! By the end of this level, preschool 4 students will be introduced to do assisted front crawl with continuous breathing throughout.

These youngsters get more adventurous with swimming longer distances and continue to learn the basics of front crawl with breaths! Fish in this level are introduced to back crawl and by the end of this level, will be comfortable swimming 8-10 metres unassisted! This last preschool level will build confidence with distance swimming which will propel them into our Swimmer program!
