Preschool classes are designed to build confidence and endurance, teach water safety, as well as water sports and games while allowing children to progress through the steps of learning how to swim. It is expected that a child will repeat a certain level multiple times until they are developmentally ready to move on. Parents are asked to remain outside the pool area to view lessons. Children must be 3 years of age prior to enrolling in preschool lessons. Student-instructor ratio is 5:1 for all levels. Lessons are 45 minute classes.
