Pre-School Non Swimmer
We are here to help you choose the correct Stage of Swimming Ability for your child.
A Pre-school Non-Swimmer is a child that cannot travel in the water unless they receive support, usually by means of swimming aids such as armbands or rings. Teachers will teach your child by applying minimum manipulation methods of learning whilst supporting your child in the water. We hope that your child will be willing to get in the water and not be phased when water is splashed upon them. The teacher will however encourage water confidence and movement to enable your child to develop the first stage water travelling skills.
We pride ourselves in looking after our customers and it is essential that we help you decide on the correct Ability Stage for your child.
- The Purpose of Attending
Unlike the average swimming lessons providers, at SwimEasy we are very technique focussed. This means that your child will learn the four recognised strokes in an exciting, structured, progressive manner, and to the highest standard.
In the Pre-School Non-Swimmer stage, your child will build on the following skills:
- Build on water confidence by the humming and blowing bubbles method and submerging face and head when they are ready
- Pushing away from the wall to grab and grip to a safe place
- Build the very foundations of kicking techniques
- Holding floating positions
- Starting to travel up to two metres unaided
At SwimEasy, we progress children as and when they are ready.
Did you know that swimmers who attend regularly and consistently will improve faster than those who don't?
Did you know that children who practice out with the lessons will progress at a much quicker rate? Swimming, like any other skill, requires practice. Why not make it a fun day out and get your child to show you the skills they have been learning! After all, we believe children deserve recognition for their success.
- Parental Help
We ask that you help us in delivering quality teaching for your child.
Is your child able to be away from you in a small group environment? You can help our teachers and your child by preparing them beforehand and allowing them to understand that they will be in a class environment. Why not come along to one of our pools before their first lesson so that they get a feel for what's to come?
Our teachers love to spend as much time as possible with each class. Because of this, they love it when children come to the lessons with cap and goggles on and passport in hand, ready to start the lesson. To avoid minimum disruption to the lessons, we ask that children blow their noses and go to the toilet before the start of the lesson.
