Parent-Child Swim Lessons (ages 6 months - 3 years)
Explore the water with your baby/toddler. Basic safety and movements are covered through song, games and other play. Children start moving more independently through the water under their parents’ guidance, preparing them to work directly with an instructor on their own. The child should be able to control head and sit with support.
