Our qualified swimming teacher delivers optional weekly swimming lessons for our three to five year olds. We use a local swimming pool which we travel to using Sandcastle’s vehicles. The children are grouped according to their ability with no more than 8 children in a group. The planning for these sessions primarily focuses on building confidence in the water through action songs and games with the emphasis on making it fun. Children learn how to be safe in the water and have the opportunity to progress their stroke skills and stamina. As they progress they are assessed in line with the ASA Duckling swimming award scheme.
Our Spanish teacher comes in once a week and delivers fun, interactive lessons to our Dolphin children. Learning an additional language at a young age sets a foundation for the acquisition of speech and language.
The above sessions incur an additional fee
