Descriptions of Classes

Parent & Child Level 2 (PC2)

4 and 5-year-olds (Preschool)
Children must be four years old before the beginning of the session that they register for – NO Exceptions! Preschool-age children are taught basic aquatic safety and swimming skills while increasing their comfort level in and around the water.
