Children's Swimming Lessons
Children’s group lessons are for ages 3 and up. Our small group classes are 30 minutes and limited to 3 – 4 children. One or two groups of students and teachers are in the pool at a time, making for more focused learning and a larger space to practice. Your child’s confidence will increase as they learn and improve their swimming and water safety skills with our experienced instructors.
Private and Semi-Private Swimming Lessons for Children
As an alternative or supplement to our group lessons, we are able to accommodate your child/ children with 30-45 minute lessons, individualized for their needs.
