The goal of Parent & Child swim lessons is to provide a positive aquatic experience for parents and infants. 

The infants will be introduced to basic swim and safety skills through water exploration and fun songs. The parents learn about basic aquatic safety and how to work with their children to gain water comfortability and knowledge.

Parent & Child is for infants and toddlers 6 months to 3 years of age.

Classes are 30 minutes. 

Cost:  $66.00
