3 to 5 Year Old Program Guidelines

           In order to better serve the children who participate in Swim Lesson, a five (5) tiered program is offered.

Attention Parents of 3 year olds:  We do accept 3 year olds in our Pre-Beginner classes.  In order for your 3 year old child to participate he/she must be socially as well as physically and emotionally ready to be in class without their parents.  If the child can not follow instructions as to sitting on the wall without running away or jumping in or if the child cries throughout the lesson, or if there is any other problem that causes distraction of the class or endangers the safety of the child or other class participants the child can not be in the pre beginner program.  If you feel your child cannot meet these guidelines we do offer Parent/Tot classes.
