Our 1-2 year olds love to play! They love to splash, jump in, kick their legs and chase the balls. We encourage this with fun games and songs, together with swimming time with their parent.
Our toddlers love to interact with each other too, and the songs and group activities provide a focus for this. Most of the children in this class are extremely comfortable taking little swims on their own, both with woggles and unaided. Without realizing it, our toddlers are becoming skilled and safety conscious. They love to blow bubbles (the first step to learning to exhale in the water) and play with the water toys. Repetition makes learning to swim easy and natural.
We aim to complete Level 3 of the STA Starfish Awards in this group and complete or be working towards level 4×
