Parent/Tot Swim Lessons

This class is designed to get children 6-months-old to 3-years-old comfortable in the water while having fun and bonding with their caregiver. We will play water games that will help build trust and teach beginning water movements to prepare children for group swim lessons. Swim diapers are required for children not potty-trained. Swim shirts are recommended.
