Water Exploration & Safety 8 Week Program: 6 months – 1 year mixed
Jun 25, 2022 - Aug 20, 2022

This class is an introduction to water safety and basic water skills for both parent and child. It is not a swim lesson and parents should adjust their expectations accordingly. The Water Exploration and Safety class is meant to allow the child to explore the water in a supervised and fun environment with the guidance of the instructor and parent.

Requirements: No experience necessary; parent(s) must be in the water with children throughout lesson.
