Parent & Toddler

This is our very first group class for infants and their parent or guardians.  Each swimmer will have an adult in the water with them.  Through fun games and songs the parent will learn how to enter and exit the pool safely with their child, proper holding techniques to begin the learn to swim process correctly and other teaching techniques to ensure their child has a wonderful first experience with swimming to instill the love of this life long activity.  Infants must be at least 6 months old to participate.  The class runs for 25 minutes Monday/Wednesday/Friday the first week and Monday/Wednesday the second week.  We leave the last Friday of each session open for a full class make-up in case of a full class cancellation due to weather, a swim meet, or other pool closure.

Parent TOT = $35 (half sessions not offered)

This is the first class children can take without mom or dad in the water with them.  They must be at least 3 years old to enter the class.  Classes run for 25 minutes Monday-Friday the first week of the session and Monday-Thursday the second week of the session.  We leave the last Friday of each session open for a full class make-up in case of a full class cancellation due to weather, a swim meet, or other pool closure.  Children will begin to learn how to stay safe in the water on their own (this does not take the place of active guardian supervision!).
