We’ve designed a learn-to-swim program that challenges each student to reach his or her full potential. Our trainers are focused on giving your kid the right lessons that they can use in the long run.

At Little Fishes, we love babies and have designed a baby program for babies to explore and discover the delights of playing in the water. The half-hour classes focus on water confidence as well as water safety skills. Safe entry and exits into the water, floating and recoveries, kicking, breathing and submerging readiness are all taught in an enjoyable environment.​

Baby swimming strengthens the bond between child and parent and can aid in muscle growth, balance and mental development. Children gain confidence in and out of the water and social skills with other children and adults are heightened. These classes are gentle and are in no way distressing to the child. Come, sing and play games with us and have lots of fun.
