Baby & Me group classes are for parents and caregivers and their child, who are between 4 months and 2 years old, with little to no swim experience. These group classes are scheduled once a week for 45-minutes each, over an eight-class session.
These classes are an opportunity for parents and caregivers to enjoy time with their child in the water singing, playing and socializing with each other. This is a wonderful way to help your child get acclimated to the water and is a gentle introduction to skills that will be built upon in our Six-Week Intensive Series lessons. The teacher will lead caregivers in group activities with their child as well as offer some one-on-one instruction. Baby & Me group classes introduce breath control, submersion, and ﬂoating to each child.
To help foster a learning environment that supports the development of your child, these classes are divided into two age groups: four months to nine months and ten months up to two years old. Each child participating in Baby & Me group class will receive a free reusable swim diaper during their first class with us.

Six-Week Intensive Series lessons are for children who are between the ages of six months and four years with little to no swim experience. These private lessons are scheduled three times a week for 15 minutes each, over a period of six weeks. These lessons are taught in a private one-on-one setting with your child and their instructor. During this time, we will focus on helping your child learn the fundamentals of Kick-Flip-Kick. Mastering this skill sequence serves as the foundation for future stroke development.
During week five of the Six-Week Intensive Series your child’s instructor will compose a progress report detailing what has been accomplished during lessons and their best recommendation of how your child will be most successful continuing lessons after the completion of the Six-Week Series. Usually we suggest continuation of private lessons once or twice a week.
