PARENT CHILD BEGINNER: 3-20 MONTHS – 3:1
Breath Control, Balance, buoyancy, movement, and comfort in the water
This class is designed as a child’s first experience in an aquatic environment. Using a model of early childhood education, our program works to help infants and toddlers develop a life-long love of water through song and play while also incorporating large safety components of learning breath control, buoyancy and finding the way back to the safety of the wall. We offer a compassionate introduction to water and safety and therefore create families who love the water and will continue swimming for recreation, health, and competitio
PARENT CHILD ADVANCED: 15-36 MONTHS – 3:1
Acclimating and separating from parent/guardian
This class is designed for infants and toddlers to continue to work on more advanced safety skills while adjusting to separation from their parent/guardian. Swimmers continue to work on breath control, buoyancy, and movement, building on the skills from Parent-Child Beginner. This could also be a first introduction to water for children ages 20+ months who have never taken a class before. At age 30 months, swimmers become eligible to move to a Level 1A curriculum if they are ready to begin following directions, complete class independently with a teacher, and are safe in the pool with a flotation device.
