About Our Approach... 

Our lessons are structured but do not follow a formatted lesson plan. We teach to each individual child, so that everyone is able to learn at their own pace. This is why all of our classes, with the exception of Parent & Tot lessons, are taught as hybrid levels. This allows us the flexibility to work on different skills with different students in the same class.


LEVEL 1 ("Parent & Tot")

Ages 6 months- 3 years
There are no prerequisite skills for this class.

This class requires a parent or caregiver to attend the class and get in the water with the child. The instructor will teach the adult how to get in and out of the pool with the child, how to hold the child in the water to ensure that the child feels supported and secure, and age appropriate skills that the adult can work on with the child.


 LEVEL 2/3

Ages 2 & up

There are no prerequisite skills for this level. However, all students must be able to sit on the wall between turns. For beginner students ages 8& up, we usually recommend starting in a level 3/4 class. 

In this level, swimmers will be introduced to basic water skills. Emphasis on kicking on stomach and back, climbing out of the pool without assistance, pushing off wall to and from instructor, blowing bubbles, and putting face in the water...
