Parent & Infant Classes (6 months-3 years old)

This course works to help children safely enjoy being in and around the water. Parents are instructed, in water, how to assist in the development of their child's future swimming skills.


Classes (4 - 5 years old)

This course is designed for children pre-school age and that are ready to help bridge the gap from parent assisted lessons to group lessons with just children and the instructor. The American Red Cross learn-to-swim program makes this fun and easy for everyone. They will continue to build and learn swimming skills to help them advance to the next level.
