Are you looking for an opportunity for children to learn through play in an aquatic setting? This is a new course and will provide an early pre-school experience incorporating music, water exploration/play, and movement activities. Activities will provide an experience rich in expressive language development, fine and gross motor skills, social skill development, and play skills. Children will practice following directions, will follow a structured routine, and learn pre-school concepts (early literacy and early math).
This is a team taught program with Prairie Athletic Club and Sun Prairie Area School District Early Childhood staff (Early Childhood Teacher, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Speech/Language Therapist) . Offered for children ages 3 - 4 years old. This class is NOT swimming lessons and does not teach children how to swim.

“We love "little cardinals" class! What a great combination of activities, parallel play and socialization! Our 3-year old son has been hesitant in the water and had some separation anxiety about a class without mom or dad. This combination offers great pool-time fun with practical skills, songs, and great teacher-student ratio. We are so glad we joined this class. Thank you!”

“My daughter has enjoyed the Little Cardinals Swim time. Her favorite activity was using the “scoops” (fish nets) to gather the animals floating around in the pool and depositing them into the bucket. She also liked playing the find the turtle game. The teachers were very engaging and fun. It was nice that they kept the same format each class so the children knew what to expect. But also threw in some different activities to keep them interested. Thank you!!”
