Parent & Child Swim Lessons
To familairize young children (6 months to 3 years) to the water and prepare them to learn to swim in the American Red Cross Preschool Aquatics or Learn-To-Swim Courses. Parent or other adult caregiver MUST accompany each child into the water and participate in EACH class. Swim diapers with plastic pants over the diapers are required for each child.
Parent and Child Aquatics helps young children get ready to swim by emphasizing fun in the water. Parents and children participate in several guided practice sessions that help children learn elementary swimming skills, including water entry, bubble blowing, front kicking, back floating, underwater exploration and more.
Course length: Courses typically meet for 30 minutes over 7-10 sessions. In Level 1, children learn basic skills through fun activities, such as blowing bubbles and playing with water toys. In Level 2, parents work with their children to practice floating, kicking and swimming back to the side of the pool.
