Baby and Me Group Lessons

“Baby & Me” classes are geared for kids ages 6 months to 2 ½ years of age.  With mom and dad as co-teachers in the pool, in a group format with other like-minded parents, babies and toddlers can learn to relate to the water with ease and confidence to gain water familiarity and safety training.  A low teacher-student ratio allows children to safely develop skills and techniques such as pool safety, using flotation devices correctly, acclimating to the water and getting child’s face wet, breath control, submerging safely, handling a child in deep water, splashing, and singing and playing in the water.
