American Red Cross Preschool Aquatics, consisting of three levels, is an integral part of the overall Red Cross instructional aquatic and water safety program. The primary objective of Preschool Aquatics is to promote the developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills by young children 3-5 years of age. Skills are grouped into aquatic and water safety categories in the following way: water entry and exit, breath control and submerging, buoyancy, changing direction and position, treading, swim on front and back, and water safety.
•LEARN-TO-SWIM (levels 1-6)
•American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim teaches aquatic and personal water safety skills in a logical progression. Participants in level 1 are oriented to the aquatic environment and gain some basic skills in each category. Throughout the levels, participants build on their basic skills to learn various propulsive movements on the front, back and side. As the levels increase, participants learn to refine the different strokes and build endurance. Each level includes exit skills assessments that put together many of the skills learned in the level.
