About Our Level 3 Swim Lessons


Goal: Become comfortable in the water

What Your Child Will Learn

This is the first class for children who are beginning to swim without their caregivers in the water. This swim class is designed for children 2.5 years and older to become comfortable and confident in the water. In the Leapfrogs class, your child will learn to:

  • Hold breath underwater
  • Roll over independently and float on back
  • Float on back while moving
  • Get to the pool’s edge and climb out

What Skills Are Required

Children must meet the following requirements to be eligible for Level 3 Leapfrogs:

  • 2.5 years or older

What You Can Expect

It’s important to know what to bring and what to expect before, during and after Level 3 swim classes:

  • Swim Bag: Bring your child’s swimming suit, change of clothes, a towel and goggles (optional).
  • Double Diaper: If your child is not fully potty-trained, bring a disposable swim diaper to wear under a reusable swim diaper. Both are available to purchase at the school, if needed.
  • Tears to Cheers: Swimming classes for young children offer a new environment, and crying is completely normal. This adaptive experience takes time to adjust. The more frequently you attend swim lessons, the faster the crying will subside. Learn more about how your child can get comfortable around water.
  • Underwater Expectations: As a pro-submersion school, we want your child to know what to do if they ever fall into the water unexpectedly. Basic water safety starts with being comfortable in the water, and that comfort begins with proper breath control. The face must be in the water in order to learn this aspect of swimming correctly. We also know that your child will be the safest and have the most fun when they know how to go underwater safely.
  • Instruction: Your child’s swim instructor, expertly trained in the Aqua-Tots curriculum, will guide them from Level 3 to Level 4 swimming lessons. After each session, the instructor will meet you at the door to discuss your child’s progress. Feel free to relax in the red chairs, where you can enjoy watching your child advance in their Swim Journey toward becoming safe and confident in the water!
