Preschool Learn to Swim

Our preschool program focuses on developing technique from an early age in a safe, supportive and fun environment.

Our Swim School philosophy is that teaching aquatic skills helps with making good life choices, beginning with important water safety skills. We follow this with creating options for children and adults to experience wider aquatic environments to continue development.
