Willows Prep Pool Programs
Wave Swim School
Our approach to teaching swimming is based on elements of a method that has been in practice for over twenty years. WAVE has adopted some of the finer points of this program and incorporated them into our own, proven philosophy on teaching children of all ages to be water-safe.
Our program is based on repetition and layers, an approach which we believe maximizes a child's ability to learn and retain new skills. Just like learning math skills in school, we start with the simple basics, and once those skills have been mastered, we add progressively more challenging, but related skills. Each level is intricately related to the level before it and the level after. Our lesson plans also take advantage of the power of repetition in a learning environment.
We understand well that for a child to attain a more solid mastery of new skills, their exposure in the learning environment is best served as smaller, more manageable pieces of information over a prolonged period of time. We believe that though participation in a more intensive program may achieve rapid results in a child initially, a child's ability to retain these skills over the long term is significantly decreased. For example, when a child takes a break after completing a short intensive summer program, it is understood that they will lose approximately half of what they learned by the following summer. Taking once a week lessons, year round maximizes the child's ability to retain the skills they have learned and best prepares them to learn progressively more advanced skills. Over the long term, students who take lessons in such a program will enjoy a steadier and more solid development in their swimming skills and are likely to become happier, more confident swimmers.
