Ages 6 months – 3 years

This class is designed to orient infants and toddlers to the water with the comfort of their parent. The class strengthens the amount of trust between the parent and child while teaching parents how to encourage aquatic activity with their child. A parent, or other trusted adult, must be in the water with each child at all times. Spring weekday classes meet twice per week for four weeks, thirty minutes. Summer weekday classes meet three days per week for two weeks, forty five minutes. Saturday classes meet once per week for six weeks, forty five minutes.
