Red Cross Swim Preschool

Red Cross Swim Preschool is an eight-level stand-alone program for four-month to six-year-old children that allows swimmers to enter various levels based on age and ability.

Each level is represented by an animal mascot that is incorporated into the content and makes the lesson engaging and fun, through songs and activities. Lesson plans are available to help Water Safety Instructors run dynamic classes for this age group.
