Parent/Child Swim Lesson (Ages 6 mos - 3 yrs)

Parent/Child Swim Lesson (Ages 6 mos - 3 yrs)

The Red Cross Parent/Child program helps familiarize young children and their parents to aquatic environments. In addition to orienting young children to the water, parent/child classes also serve as an excellent opportunity for socializing. These classes also include several aquatic readiness activities that will help children transition from lessons with their parents into preschool lessons.
