The Swim England Pre-School Framework is about building the beginnings of a lifelong love of water.
Every child should be given a chance to learn to swim and feel like they are comfortable and able to do so in any situation.
We believe that the first experiences during a child’s early years, of water and the pool environment, should be positive, fun and memorable.
Swim England Pre-School Framework, Confidence, and Awards
The key focus areas of the Pre-School Framework are:
Giving children confidence from the word go.
Teaching the core skills needed to learn the four strokes through fun and games.
The Pre-School Framework is about helping to support younger, less independent swimmers, pre-school children and babies.
It also caters for toddlers, helping to keep them motivated if they are struggling with building water confidence.
One of the ways to help keep them motivated is a range of bright Awards with fun and friendly characters to reward them as they progress.
