Pre School

Pre-School

Aquatots pre school program is a child centred program that will enhance your child's love for the aquatic environment and teach them a skill that may one day save their life.

We teach pre school children in small groups with children of the same swimmign ability. The classes take place in an area that will maximize your child's swimming time within the 30 minute time slot. By learning to swim in a small group children also have the chance to develop important social skills like communication, sharing and taking turns.


At Aquatots we teach children to rely on their own buoyancy as this is what they will need to do if they are ever in an emergency situation. Children that learn to swim in deep water have the confidence to swim any where. 

We understand that each child is unique and will learn at their own pace and with their own style. In our Pre school program children will be learnign the elements of all four strokes in each level.

The Aquatots way will nurture your child's swimming development by finding a method and teaching style that your child will relate to and progress with.
