Tot & Tadpole Classes

The Tots class is a child and parent class, in which the parent is in the water with the child for the entire length of the class. The focus of this class is to get young children ages 6months- two (2) years old comfortable in the water with a parent. The children will work on putting their faces in the water and being "splashed" a bit.

The Tadpoles class is for children age three (3) - five (5) years old. This class is a child and parent class where the parent will begin the class in the water. One main goal of this class is for the child to be comfortable enough in the water with an instructor to stand on a platform, with their parent on the side of the pool. This class is recommended for children who have completed the Tots class and are tall enough to stand on a platform, but are not comfortable enough to be in the water without a parent.

These classes are thirty (30) minutes in length.
