In Early Years the focus during the swimming lesson is to cultivate students' awareness, interest and building confidences in water. Swimming lessons are taught through confidence building games and some underwater games. There are three main stages in infant swimming teaching for our Early Years students:
Stage 1: Introducing and explaining the safety regulations of swimming pool and establishing safety consciousness. How to get in and out of the swimming pool safely and walk in the water with the help of adults.
Stage 2: Swimming, breathing, floating technical movements, using floating board, floating strip floating in water and simple leg movements.
Stage 3: Free diving, self-rescue in water, backstroke floating in water, backstroke leg technical movements.
We are all looking forward to the progress our Early Years students will make throughout the year.
