This class prepares children to be safe in the water with the comfort of their parent close by. Children learn the skills of floating, light submersion, basic arm and leg movements and sitting jumps through songs and games as they gradually get more comfortable in an aquatic environment.
During Seahorse 1 classes only one parent is allowed in the water.
• Supported back float
• Light submersion (sideways)
• Head submersion
• Introduction to front float
• Leg movements
• Assisted toy retrieval (surface, under water)
• Sitting jumps (with support)
