SWIMMING POOL : Our day-swimming pool
Surrounded by bamboo trees, this is a popular area for the children aged 2.5-6years. Well supervised at all times, the children have ‘class’ swimming time, one morning a week. Children have the opportunity to build their confidence and enjoying using many different materials such as pipes, bottles, buckets and even plastic tables and chairs to sit at, in the pool. It does not involve formal swimming lessons.
Younger children aged 18months to 2.5years have water play too. They use the many large plastic containers, small swimming pool and the overhead sprinkler outside to keep cool. Not only is it fun but learning about science concepts such floating, sinking; maths concepts like empty, full, half, too much, too little, and sharing with others, all combine to make this a great learning time.
