Under-fives swimming as a site for capital building: Supporting and enhancing transitions
MetadataShow full item record
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.
