My wife is an ex-lifeguard and has got all three of our kid swimming from an early age often in their life jackets so they are happy with the equipment and environment. I think that that is the crux of the issue, as long as they are not frightening let them do what they want. My eldest was always quite cautious and would lower him self into the water. My middle child jumps in without a second thought, but they both do what they are happy with.
As for a 3yr old, my youngest is 4 this year, swam all last year and was happy to be pulled around with her sister at tick-over speeds.
