Parent-Child Swim Lessons
Children can relax easier in a pool setting when their parents are also comfortable in the water! The Harrisburg Area YMCA offers parent-child swim lessons for children between 6-36 months old. Class ratios are 1:10. We introduce children to the water through group activities and games, while a parent accompanies them in the pool. A child’s development levels determine which skills we introduce 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 Discovery||Introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment||AQUATOTS|
|Water Exploration||Focuses on exploring body positions, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills||PIKE WITH PARENT|
