The Harrisburg Area YMCA offers parent-child swim lesson levels for children between 6-36 months old. Class ratios are 1:10. Children are introduced to the water through group activities and games, while a parent accompanies them in the pool. Skills are introduced at the child’s development level and build on each other as the child progresses. Basic skills are taught through songs and fun games. All children must wear a swim diaper under their swimsuit. Our skill levels have recently changed; please refer to the chart below.
|CLASS NAME||SKILLS DEVELOPED||PREVIOUS LEVEL NAME|

|Water Exploration||Focuses on exploring body positions, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills||PIKE WITH PARENT|
