Parent and Tot Swim – REGISTER HERE

This is the exciting first dip into the pool for children and we make it special for everyone involved! Parents bring their children (ages 6 months to 3 years) into the pool for a fun lesson with one of our wonderful instructors. Sing songs, dance in the water and more.

On Sundays we offer Parent Tot in two separate age groups: 6 months-2 years and 2-3 years.

Swim diapers are required.
