Foundation stage

Foundation stage

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. These first experiences during a child’s early years, of water and the pool environment, should be positive, fun and memorable.

Introduce very young children to fun in and around water

Developing water confidence

The Vivacity Swim Academy starts at the foundation level which looks at developing early years water confidence which is encouraged through ‘parent and baby’, ‘pre-school’ and ‘swim-a-song-steps’ sessions.

The key focus areas of the Foundation Framework are:

  1. Giving children confidence from the word go
  2. Teaching the core skills needed to learn the four strokes through fun and games

These sessions help develop basic motor skills and introduce young children to the water and pool environment.
