Abstract

This paper theorises the possibilities of under-five swimming to add new forms
of knowledge and skills to young children. The paper draws on the work of Pierre
Bourdieu to frame these new learnings as forms of capital that have been made
possible through participating in early years swimming. This paper draws on elements
of under-five swimming lessons to illustrate the definitions that are developed within
this paper. The framing made possible through notions of capital underpin a much
larger project.
