We offer three varieties of "Baby and Me" classes. All of them require parent participation up to the age of three and have a maximum of 6 baby/caregiver pairs.

BabySprites classes are a learn to swim class for children who are 2- 14 months. They are simply a little quieter than our other offerings due to the age restriction of the children enrolled.

WaterSprites classes are open to all ages 2- 36 months. Ages can be mixed, but this is a basic introduction to water. Skills to be learned include, submerging, sit jumps, moving around the pool independently with a flotation device, monkey walking, and general aquatic comfort.

SuperSprites classes are limited to children who have earned an orange ribbon or higher. Due to our ongoing program, some of our little swimmers will outgrow a basic WaterSprite class. However, we still feel that a parent is going to be the most important teacher for children under the age of three. These super fish will be challenged in a developmentally appropriate manner that will allow them to work towards their yellow and even green ribbons before moving to a class without a parent.

Rainbow Ribbon

This ribbon is earned by a child who is a novice and at least 30 months old. They must become comfortable in the water, and not cry for 3 consecutive weeks. In this class we make sure that kids learn water safety through interactive water games and songs. We also help provide a foundation that will allow them to feel better prepared for the ribbons to come. Children who begin classes under the age of three will not earn this ribbon.
