WaterBabies

2 Months – 3+ Years

WaterBabies is a guided water experience using songs and games to build confidence, develop motor skills, and teach personal water safety to parents and children. Waterbabies uses a gentle, loving, child-centered approach where “play is learning and learning is play”. We partner with parents in the aquatic education of their child to create a successful water experience.

Our goal is to empower parents by teaching them the skills to teach their child to swim. Parents do most of the handling of their child in the water and instructors are there to “coach” parents on the techniques. Parents and instructors simultaneously model what we ask the child to do; rather than doing it to them, we are doing it with them, moving at the child’s pace; applying the technique to the child, rather than the child to the technique.

Cost: $22 per 30-min. class
