  • What is Water Babies?

     Water Babies is a swim class for children from the ages of 6 months to 2 years old. It is a chance for parents and their child to bond and explore the water together. The class will consist of various exercises and learning opportunities for both the parents and their child. We will explore the water and how to feel comfortable in it. We'll also learn how to move our arms and legs in the water and how to get our faces wet! Each child will need to have an adult in the water with them at all times.   The class will consist of 8 twenty minute lessons over a four week span, the cost is $40.
