Swimobile's Parent & Me program begins at 5 months and continues until children turn 3. Within this time period, parents are present in the water, guiding children in learning skills such as floating on back, breath control and finding the wall. Teaching basic water comfort, swimming foundations, and safety techniques forms the core of these early lessons. Little Fish lessons are not only a wonderful bonding activity, but provide parents with tools to further their child's swimming abilities at home. Classes are divided into 2 groups by age. Student to instructor ratio is 6:1.
Beginner 1 classes are for kids with no prior lesson experience or for those who have had exposure to the water but will not willingly submerge / put their face in the water.
