How Does Swimstars Work?
Having run our Swimstars programme for a number of years, we’ve taken the decision to review the STA awards and develop a best practice standard, which is as follows:
Children joining our 2+ Programme
Our 2+ programme is aimed at children aged 2 – 4 years old who lack confidence or have a fear of going in the water. As with all of our programmes, we offer a supportive, safe environment where children will work in small groups of a maximum 1 teacher to 7 pupils. Parents come in the pool with their children with added comfort and support. the 2+ programme uses the Stanley 1 – 3 awards.
Once swimmers have gone through Stanley awards they will move through to the full Swimstars programme. They will work through the STA awards listed below.
