To join our pre-strokes class we expect children to:
Be mature enough to take a class on their own. If it's the first time they've taken a class on their own do expect a period of adjustment.
Be very comfortable in the water, meaning they are happy to be in the water and willing to submerge consistently.
Be able to float on their front by themselves, no floating devices!
Our video below illustrates it perfectly. In our video you will see little J having just graduated from our Tots 2 class to Pre-Strokes.
If your child can't do the above and they are younger than 2 years and 10 months I'd recommend they join the adult assisted Tots 2 class. If they are older than 2 years and 10 months I'd recommend they join the Scared Beginners class.
