First Timers Class
Description: This class is for toddlers and preschoolers ages 2 to 4 who are not underwater yet and may be reluctant to try. It may or may not be their first time in swim lessons. Class will move slowly and at the pace set by the children in the class. Underwater skills may be added gradually starting with bubbles, pouring water over the face and head, and if and when the children are ready, underwater.
Other skills taught include:
- Climbing out
- Entries into the pool
- Back floats
- Reaching and activities on the steps
- Safety is reinforced at every lesson
Time: 30 Minutes
Ratio: 6 Child/Parent pairs to 1 instructor
All children ages 3 and under must wear a bathing suit, disposable swim diaper and non-disposable swim diaper. Some bathing suits have a non-disposable swim diaper built into the suit. All Parent/Child classes require a responsible adult to enter the water with the children. Participants in the Parent/Child classes enjoy flexible make-ups and can attend another Parent/Child class to make-up a missed class.
