Water Babies Swim Class

(3 and Under)
The first three years of a child's life are the most impressionable. What occurs during this critical and formative window of time will have a dramatic effect on the child for the rest of their lives. Swimming is often the first organized activity on their journey of life. As privileged stewards, parents and swim teachers owe it to these budding water babies to make this an uplifting, joyous experience. At least one parent is required to be in the water with their child. Water babies must be under 4 years old. Swim lessons are available for those 4 and older. Classes are limited to 10 babies.
