FALL/WINTER SWIM LESSONS

 
PARENT / CHILD SWIM LESSONS (AGES 6 MONTHS - 3 YEARS)

DESCRIPTION: The primary objective is to get the child & parent comfortable in the water. The child will become aware of the difference between moving through water and on dry land, while the parent will become aware of how to teach the child to be safer in and around the water. Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun in the water while the parent guides them to learn aquatic skills. Children are exposed to games that use basic movements such as kicking, arm strokes, and breath control. Parents must accompany infants & toddlers in the water. All children must wear rubber pants with tight fitting elastic legs - no regular diapers, please.

CLASS INFORMATION: A 30-minute class for children 6 months to 3 years and their parents. Classes meet twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) for four weeks, eight lessons total.
