About the Sea Turtle and Jellyfish Levels

Four and five-year-old children have significantly more coordination than three-year-olds. And they should. After all, they’re 33% to 66% older! But they are still in relatively early stages of cognitive and co-ordinate development.

Our program for four and five-year-olds is designed to meet them at their level of development:

  • To create the trust relationship so crucial to teaching anyone to swim
  • To engage them in swimming as a fun and rewarding activity
  • To introduce them to and help them master the water safety awareness and in-water skills that every child should have.


Our classes are listed in progressive order. Students with anxiety or fear in the water will start with our Sea Turtle group classes to address these worries first. Students without fear, or already have some swimming skills, can start on their appropriate Jellyfish level.

IMPORTANT: Children 4 years old and younger, even if potty trained, must ABSOLUTELY wear reusable swim diapers. These can be purchased here or at your local Target or Walmart.
