Private and Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Parent & Child Swim Lessons (Ages 6 months - 2½ years)

Take your little one on an exploration adventure together in the leisure pool during Parent and Child Swim Lessons. In Parent and Child Swim, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for infants and young children. Great experiences and fun activities are provided to teach infants and toddlers to:
  • Enter and exit the water safely
  • Feel comfortable in the water
  • Submerge and explore breath control
  • Explore floating on the back and front
  • Change body position in the water
  • Play safely in the water
  • Experience wearing a life jacket
Parents also learn how to hold and support your child in the water, how to select and fit a life jacket for your child, and valuable water safety information to make your family safer in and around the water.  Parent & Child Swim Lessons is moving to Saturdays and will be session based.

Preschool Level 1 & 2 Swim Lessons (Ages 3-5)

In Preschool Swim Lessons, children gain confidence and learn to be safe and comfortable in the water. Skills include putting the head under, floating with assistance on the front and back, and arm and leg movement. For preschool aquatics, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and to build on previously learned skills. Each class is loaded with fun, engaging, and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim.

It is quite common for children to participate in several sessions of Preschool Swim Lessons before they are able to successfully demonstrate all the skills necessary to advance. That's expected and normal!
