Swimming classes in U6

The ability to swim is incredibly important for children so that they can stay safe in and around the ocean, beach and pool. It is important to start swimming lessons as early as possible so that the children become safe as soon as possible.
The U6 area has therefore firmly integrated swimming lessons for the preschool children into the timetable. Together with the sports teacher Mr. Tietz, the prospective first graders go to the swimming pool every Tuesday. But the kindergarten children don’t miss out either. A paddling pool is set up for the younger children every Friday so that Explorers can learn about water safety in a fun environment. The swim and splash lessons provide Explorers and Researchers with the skills to become strong, safe and confident swimmers in the water in a fun and encouraging environment.
