Parent / Child Swim

 

This program is designed to help parents learn how to safely enjoy the water with their small children. A young child’s first aquatic experience should be a pleasurable one guided by the hand of a Mom or Dad. Your child becomes acclimated to the sights and sounds of the pool and is introduced to kicking, blowing bubbles, floating and general water movement through the use of games and toys.  You, the parent, are the teacher, partnering with the instructor, who will guide you and your child through a positive experience.  Children should wear swim diapers under their suit and must be accompanied in the water by a parent or another trusted adult. Children must be at least 10 months old to participate in this program. Come enjoy a great time in the pool with your young children!
