Swimming Lessons for Babies

Ages 1 to 2.5 years. During swim lessons for babies, Mom or Dad will join in on the fun and help teach their baby how to swim under the supervision of a certified instructor. This makes your baby feel more comfortable and helps you learn methods to safely and effectively teach your baby how to swim. Fun, imaginative, and positive teaching methods are used. If your baby is comfortable with an instructor holding him or her, then our certified instructor can substitute for the parent if requested.

Please remember, while swim lessons greatly reduce the risk of drowning, no child is “drown-proof”. Always watch children around the water and be prepared for the unexpected so every experience in the water is a fun and safe one!
