American Red Cross Swim Lessons

Learn-to-Swim Program

The Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving them the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our kids’ swim classes make it easy to build confidence in the water.During their swim lessons, children will spend time on the following six levels:

Parent/Child (Ages 6mos – 3 yrs)

Teach safe behaviors around the water and develop swimming readiness by leading parents and their children in water exploration activities with the objective of having fun and becoming comfortable in, on and around water. A parent must accompany each child in the water. Children not toilet trained must wear swim diapers

Toddler/preschool (Ages 3- 5)

Child will learn introductory water safety skills. Children not toilet trained must wear swim diapers. Parent must accompany the child in the water at the beginning of the session and may gradually be eased out by the instructor. Child(ren) must be comfortable standing in 3ft of water.
