Not only do these classes help prepare kids for upcoming water activities such as family trips to the beach, but also leave them with life-long swimming skills.

Parent-Child Swim Lessons

Parent-Child Lessons

Give your infant or toddler a head start on life by helping them become comfortable in the water. Once they have adjusted to being in a pool, they are ready to learn swimming skills and can get started at an early age.  This class helps prevent children from being afraid of the water as they age and it teaches them how to be safe around water.

This class will familiarize children ages 6 months to 3 years with the water and prepare them to learn to swim on their own. It is not designed to teach babies survival skills or how to swim without a parent. It is designed to equip the parent with skills to teach their babies/toddlers to swim on their own. Cost of parent-child lessons is per child.  All children must wear a swim diaper.  There must be an adult with the child in the water.  There are no added fees for the supervising adult.
