Mommy and Me Swim Lessons

Children will attend with mom, dad, or other adult and begin to learn to swim and feel comfortable in the water. The more a child gets in the water and enjoys their experience the easier it is for them to learn to swim. This class is from 11am to 11:55am on Monday and Wednesday and is ten lessons long. The adult and child may also come to Recreation Swim time and use the pool. Register the child using the child’s social security number in the section that says “For children 6 months to 4 years”. Then register the adult in the section that says “Registration of Parent”. There is no fee for the adult.

This class is for all ages and lasts for ten sessions at a time that is agreed on by the instructor and the student. The student may use the pool during Recreation Swim time to practice.
