Toddlers Program

Where Toddlers Learn to Swim

Independent swim classes for children between 3 and 5 years old

Developed for toddlers between the ages of 3 and 5 years, this swim program gets your child in the water independently at the earliest age possible. Not only is learning to swim vital for their safety in and around bodies of water, but it also benefits their mental and physical health and development in a number of ways. Swimming lessons aid in the development of mind and body connections which, in turn, improve brain development and overall intelligence. You’ll also notice that your toddler eats and sleeps better with regular swimming classes, which aids in their balanced physical development.

Aquastream’s Toddler program is inclusive of four levels. Our certified Lifesaving Society instructors track each individual child’s progress across three major indicators before graduating them to the next level. In Level One, toddlers learn water comfort, floating, and shallow water entry and exits through play and songs. In Level Two, our trainers teach rhythmic breathing and different floats using play, songs, and buoyant objects. In Level Three, play, songs, relay, and buoyant objects are used to teach jumps, front and back glides, as well as roll overs. Finally, in Level Four, coaching involves distance swimming and independent swim. Depending on the age, ability, and progress of each toddler, swimmers can enter and exit this program at various levels.

Our certified swim instructors deliver detailed lesson plans that engage this age group in a way that’s fun, dynamic, and organized. With 3:1 student to instructor ratios, your swimmer will have all the individual attention they require in order to meet achievable goals and excel in their lessons. Each class is approximately 45-minutes long and offered on a weekly basis in our state-of-the-art, salt water pool facility that is consistently and rigorously tested for the highest water quality and comfort.

Give your toddler the gift of learning to swim safely and independently, as well as all the mental, physical, and emotional benefits that come along with it.
