YMCA SWIM LESSONS: Swim Starters for Infants & Toddlers

Accompanied by a parent*, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Stage Descriptions:
A/ Water Discovery Introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment.

B/ Water Exploration Focuses on exploring
body positions, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills.

* At the Y, we know families take a variety of forms. As a result, we define parent broadly to include all adults with primary responsibility for raising children, including biological parents, adoptive parents, guardians, stepparents, grandparents, or any other type of parenting relationship.
