Changing Into Swimming Costumes


 Share

Recommended Posts

With the weather being so hot, I'm going to set up a paddling pool for my class next week. I've not done this before and just wondered if there were any particular official or recommended guidelines for changing into and out of swimming costumes as obviously they'll be taking all their clothes off, which doesn't happen otherwise (except at the beginning of the year when the odd child gets a bit confused / carried away changing for PE! :o ). Obviously children not being alone changing with one adult, boys and girls changing separately (but can more than one child of same sex get changed in same room? Or do they need complete privacy?) Is there anything else I really need to keep in mind?

We do swimming at our school and they all get changed together in the changing rooms. We don't have separate rooms for girls and boys until year 3. As staff are doing the teaching of swimming we have very good parents (with CRBs) to help them. Any children that are a bit shy wrap a towel round their middle but we've not had any major problems. I think at the age they are we can make a bigger issue than is necessary.

We had a paddling pool last week with nursery and Reception and the children just got changed in the classroom. I agree with SP61HJ that at the age the children are it shouldn't be an issue and we shouldn't make it an issue.
