SWIM LESSONS

Parent-Child Classes ages 6 months- 3 years

Infants and toddlers are introduced to the aquatic environment. A parent will accompany their child into the water for each lesson. The Water Discovery class focuses on strengthening the parent and child relationship while teaching the fundamentals of motion in water and water safety. Water Explorations is perfect for the toddler who is looking for more independence in the water under the guidance of a parent. This class is perfect for any preschooler who is not quite ready to swim without the parent.
