These are the skills we work on in our Parent and Me Tot Class. Remember, that if your child has not been swimming during this isolation period, please adjust your initial expectations and start slowly as some regression might have occurred. Once we return to our swimming lessons, your child might also experience some separation anxiety as they have been home with you 24/7 for quite some time. We will all be patient as we work through this transition time and we are sure that your child will get back on their normal path to progression soon.
Because of this, we are requiring that all children under 36 months start in a group Parent and Me class or a private class (if they have been in Super Baby or Water Bugs Program), to make sure they feel comfortable, happy and relaxed. Thank you for trusting us to make your child safer in, on and around the water! We can't wait to swim and have FUN with our swimmers again soon!
