Parent-Tot Beginner: 25 minutes/$16 per class/6 months-1 year/Limit 10 students per class- Swim diapers are required.

A child’s first experience with the water is formed within their first year of life! It is very important to not only give them a positive experience, but include exposure to how they should react around water, the rules of being around water, and experience gravity and buoyancy training.

We practice the following skills:

  • Submersion training (start at 4 months)
  • Back Float
  • Breathing Control
  • Correct Holds
  • Bonding
  • Comfort
  • Using cues
  • Survival safety

The focus of survival safety is to teach infants how to turn over onto their backs in the event of them falling into a body of water. Even with this practice, this does not make a swimmer drown-proof. We recommend that all layers of protection be put in place- supervision, fencing, pool arms, locks on gates, and all children get formal swimming lessons so they know how to swim.

Parent-Tot Intermediate: 25 minutes/$16 per class/1 yr- 4 yrs. Limit 10 students per class- Swim diapers are required.

This is a continuation class from Parent-Tot Beginner. A parent accompanies their child in water to become more independent, explore the use of swimming equipment, increase arm/leg movement, submersion training, blowing bubbles, and survival safety. The instructor may begin practicing skills will swimmer to test if the swimmer is ready for Guppies.
