Tiny Tadpoles “Junior Blue” & “Blue” – 5 Day Swim Program

Coral Springs swimming

Learn to be “Swim safe” in our one on one (30 minute) 5 consecutive day swim programs geared for children 12 – 17 Months as well as 18 children months and older. 

For children age 12 – 17 months – JUNIOR BLUE PROGRAM 

We offer two different 5 Day programs.  First, we offer a “Junior Blue” 5 Day Swim Program.  This program is intended to introduce your young child to the water.  They will learn how to be comfortable in the water.  They will listen to cues for breath holding and develop muscle memory in order to kick their legs and row their arms toward the wall or stairs.  This class creates a foundation to build on for when they are ready for their “Blue Swim Safe” in 5 Day Program when they reach 18 months.  Second, we offer Parent-assisted classes where you will be in the water along with your little one for each lesson.  We encourage you to enroll in a – parent-assisted classes after you complete your “Junior Blue” 5 day program, once a week until the child is 18 months old.   

  • If you are enrolled in our parent-assisted classes for a minimum of three months, and are assessed as “Ready” by one of our Swim With Mr. Blue instructors, you will be able to enroll in our Blue Swim Safe 5 Day Program (possibly earlier than 18 months).

 

For children ages 18 months PLUS –  BLUE PROGRAM 

Our Blue Swim Safe in 5 Days Program includes private one-on-one 30 minute session that are taught in 5 consecutive days.  The Blue Swim Safe program will teach your child important safety skills to help them recover when they fall into a pool or body of water. These “Life saving” water safety skills are very important to learn at a young age because of the risk of drowning in children under 5-years-old.  Our Learn to Swim with Mr. Blue book and video (which you may purchase and download from our “Store”) are what make our Mr. Blue’s “Swim Safe” program a huge success.  Read the story and watch the video with them as they begin their Mr. Blue’s “Swim Safe” program.

** If your child has a physical limitation, then we cannot offer the five day guarantee.  In addition, your child will need to practice the skills they are working on during the week in order to reinforce their learning to help them learn to swim in just five days.  It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure their child is practicing what they are learning in the “Learn to Swim in Just 5 days Mr. Blue Program”.

BLUE PROGRAM OUTLINE: Ages 18 + Months Old: 

Day 1

You will first be greeted by one of our certified Swim with Mr. Blue swim instructors who will introduce themselves to you and your child and will take a moment to say hello and give your child a high five. On the first day we start to teach your child how to hold their breath underwater, to kick in a prone body position using a special kickstick and noodle, to reach for the wall and learn to “choochoo” along the wall. We use our colorful toys (Mr. Blue and Po Po the frog) from our Learn to Swim with Mr. Blue book.  We also offer a fun to watch DVD, which can be downloaded instantly for purchase under our “Media” tab.   Both the book and separate video download go along with the Learn to Swim with Mr. Blue story. We continue to review these skills for the entire 30 minute lesson.

Day 2

On the second day we review the skills learned in day 1 while introducing rowing arms and singing Row, row, row your arms… Then we start to release your child to the wall on their own with a gentle hand behind their head to guide them. We also gently place your child on their back while supporting their head and sing to them Twinkle,Twinkle Mr. Blue… while encouraging them to stick their belly out and keep their head back.

Day 3

On day 3 we review all of the skills that we have learned for the past 2 days and we introduce the “Humpty Jumpty” swim singing Humpty Jumpty sat on the wall.. We count to 3 teaching your child to jump in the water from the wall, turn around in the water and swim back to the wall. We practice this skill many times during the 30 minute lesson. Day 3 is generally the most emotional session!

Day 4

On Day 4 we review all of the skills that we have learned for the past 4 days and we start to have your child go underwater to retrieve our toys that sink. We first count to 3 and then we have your child take a deep breath and go under the water to retrieve the toy. We continue to have your child do the “Humpty Jumpty swim” off the wall now in a standing position. We may even place them in deeper water and have them swim back to the wall.

Day 5

Day 5 is your child’s swim test in which they are gently placed in the water right near the side of the pool. (where they would typically fall in) your child will be wearing their bathing suit along with their shoes. This simulates what would happen if they ever were to accidently fall into the water. Then we have you the parent come in the water with us and we teach them all the techniques we used throughout the week. We make sure you can perform all of the same skills that your child learned and that you understand the importance of practicing these skills in the water with your child for the days and months to come! Now your child is ready for Mr. Blue’s “Swim Safe” B2 Level program. Cost of Program is $400* at one of  Mr. Blue’s Pools.   Please ask about hosting a group of 5 or more private lessons at your home.
