Fall Session:

We will NOT be offering Fall Lessons this term due to limited public access to the Mount Allison Athletic Centre and other restrictions put in place due to COVID-19. All of our fingers are crossed that we will be able to offer a Winter Session in the New Year! We miss all the kids and we hope to see them soon! Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. 

Group Overview

Preschool Program
Preschool program develops an appreciation and healthy respect for the water before these kids get in too deep. In our basic aquatic progressions, we work to ensure 3 to 5-year olds become comfortable in the water and have fun acquiring and developing a foundation of water skills.

Preschool 1: They will learn to get in and out of the pool safely. Jump into chest deep water, floats on their front and back, glides on their side. Parents can participate until their child lets them know they can do it themselves. 

Preschool 2: They will learn to jump in to chest deep water and use a PDF. They will submerge and exhale underwater and continue to work on their floats. They will glide on their front and back. 

Preschool 3: They will recover objects from the bottom in waist deep water. They will work on kicking and gliding throught the water on their front and back.
