PARENT/CHILD WATER DISCOVERY – 6 months to 3 years

The Parent/Child Swim Lesson Program provides children with the opportunity to become adjusted to the aquatic environment. For each class there must be a parent or trusted adult in the pool with the child. This level uses the process of repetition of skills, songs and games, and is designed to make your child’s first water experience safe and fun. Swim diapers are to be used for all children who are not potty trained, we also recommend using plastic diapers over the swim diapers.
