    LEVEL III & IV LESSONS
    Children are organized into age-appropriate groups according to current abilities. Skills learned in Level I and Level II are reinforced while new skills are developed. Students will again learn at their own pace while in small class settings with low student to teacher ratios. Qualified instructors work to create a positive environment while helping each student achieve success on a regular basis. Students still depending on the use of a flotation device will not be permitted to advance into Level III or Level IV.
