Swim Lessons - Parent/Child (6m-36m)

Swim Lessons - Parent/Child (6m-36m)

Accompanied by a parent*, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Children are required to wear a swim diaper if they aren’t fully potty trained.

Stage Descriptions:
A / Water Discovery
Introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment.
B / Water Exploration
Focuses on exploring body positions, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills.

*We define parent broadly to include all adults with primary Skill Assessments responsibility for raising children, including biological parents, adoptive parents, guardians, stepparents, grandparents, or any other type of parenting relationship.
