Water acclimatisation courses for children aged 4-6

Aim of water acclimatisation

  • We want to develop positive associations with water.
  • Tolerating water on the face Diving / sliding (without swallowing)
  • Gliding (with face under water)
  • Jumping with and without floats
  • Discovering the properties of water (buoyancy and drag)
  • How does my body feel in the water?

The above points are essential for building confidence and developing an initial swimming technique. Children are encouraged – and not forced – to take part in each activity, allowing them to have positive experiences and build their confidence in all areas of life.
