PRE SCHOOL


St Peter’s Swim School utilises the Smart Moves Curriculum. Smart Moves follows the philosophy that a child is pre-programmed to move whether it be in the water or on land and that a moving child is a learning child.

We believe that early and frequent experiences in the water are essential to a child’s health and well-rounded development. The advantages of learning to swim, beyond the obvious safety considerations, include improved motor coordination, socialisation skills and fitness.

Pre-schoolers learn differently from older children. Children progress quickly when they are motivated and challenged to learn. Pre-schoolers can either attend the morning or early afternoon programmes and are grouped into small classes of 2 - 3 according to age and ability.

Each level focuses on a different skill, putting your face under, learning to float, learning to stroke and learning to breathe. Some Pre Schoolers reach the level of swimming half a length of the pool (or more).
