Little Crustacean Programme
( Pre School ages 3 – 5 years )
Our Little Crustacean programme caters for children aged 3 – 5 years. We have split our programme into four learning levels, these levels are not set on age but rather on swimming ability.
The Barnacle group’s primary objective is to learn water confidence through the use of kickboards, fins, noodles and other toys. Learning to submerge the face in this group is a key focus.
The Prawn group’s primary objective is to learn forward and backward movement through the use of swimming aids eg.kick boards, noodles and submerging toys. Children also start to learn the breaststroke technique here.
In the Crab group children start the arm action of freestyle, backstroke and continue the breaststroke learnt in the Prawn group. Diving starts to be instructed here also.
All fours strokes are taught in this group as well as diving,underwater swimming and water survival techniques. Ask your instructor about clothes swimming.
