Parent-N-Child Aquatics

Two class offerings for different ages. Parent-Infant is for children 6-18 months. Parent-Toddler is 18 months to 3 years old.

In these class, parents are taught how to safely introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate and engaging for infants and young children. Parent and Child Aquatics is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers on their own or even to survive in the water on their own, but teaches basic skills to get parent and child comfortable in the water.
