Our intermediate group for children in years 1 and 2 follows a programme that helps them develop their confidence with age appropriate activities and a range of dynamic equipment and resources.
Action, excitement and discovery await all mid kidz although no individual will be pressured to participate in an activity for which they are not ready. This group with its own leader is the bridge from mini kidz preparing them for the move to kool kidz. Mid kidz days consist of activity sessions where they choose from swimming, outdoor play, sports activities, arts and crafts, construction and a daily fun challenge activity all in addition to the daily highlights shown in the calendar.
There is also the opportunity to join a swim kidz session most days where a maximum of 12 children per 30 minute group will be assessment in accordance with their competencies. The less confident children will be taught basic water confidence covering a range of skills including balance, rotation and floatation. The more able swimmers will be challenged to participate in life–saving techniques and stroke correction. Sessions will not be delivered as swim lessons but with songs and games to help it be fun and creative. Along with a structure in place, it will allow skills to be built upon with a clear progression path, in line with the national and international plan for teaching swimming. The group will have at least one teacher and one helper.
