When it comes to teaching lessons, unlike our statistics posts, Go For Green is more focused on the kids, not the numbers. We would like anyone following our progress to know that our kids are not numbers on a spreadsheet, they are not statistics, they are children. After years of working with kids we know that not all children process information the same way, they are all individuals so we designed and trained a staff around an adaptive curriculum. Our kids are our pride and joy and our source of happiness. We don’t sort them by what boxes they check off, we take much more into consideration. We look at which instructor would work best with each child, which children work best together, we consider their personality, their comfort in the water and their current skills. Jayden and Marcus came into our program both afraid of the water. Jayden panicked and Marcus wouldn’t leave the pools wall. Through our program Jayden was able to receive his green band within 2 days. All he needed was to fix a few elements of his stroke and have someone believe in him. He grew to love our staff which may seem impossible to do in two days but he comes back every day to encourage his friend Marcus. Through Go For Green we’ve been teaching Marcus how to swim and now he can. All he needs is to build his confidence in the water and by continuing swim lessons we’ve seen his confidence grow every day. Jayden got a different lesson than Marcus despite them being in the same group. Each activity that each child does is catered to strengthen that child’s weakness and build on their strengths.
This is Jayden getting his green band after passing his swim test.
