  • Parent & Me-4 months-3 years
    This is the exciting first dip into the pool for children and we make it special for everyone involved! Parents bring their children (ages 4 months to 3 years) into the pool for a fun lesson with one of our wonderful instructors. Children will learn to ask permission before entering the water and how to call for help. They will explore complete water submersion of the mouth ,nose, and eyes, buoyancy on the front and back and changing body position with support.
