Mike, Parent/Child Swim Lessons
We enrolled Max in Parent/Child Swim Lessons when he was 6 months old and it’s been a great experience. The instructors play games and sing songs, which is encouraging and relaxing for the kids. After a few lessons he was kicking, rescuing toys from the pool and blowing bubbles in the water. It really helped him get used to the water and see the pool as fun.
