Infant/Toddler Swim Lessons

(Ages 6-36 Months) Our parent/child swim lessons will increase your child’s self-confidence in and out of the water, while keeping them safe. Parents and caregivers will learn how to supervise children in the water, how to prevent accidents, and how to plan for emergencies.

Stage A: Water Discovery

The infant/toddler program requires a parent/guardian to be present in the pool with the participant at all times. We will introduce basic aquatic safety to parents and set healthy expectations for your child. Several safety skills will be introduced including asking permission to enter the water, and safe entry into and exit from water.

Stage B: Water Exploration

The infant/toddler program requires a parent/guardian to be present in the pool with the participant at all times. In Water Exploration, you will help your child explore the water and introduce basic water skills like kicking, blowing bubbles, and assisted floating on the front and back. Safety skills will be reinforced including asking permission to enter the water, and exiting the water independently.
