Swim Starters is a class designed for parents and children; a parent must be in the pool with their child at all times. Infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.
