SWIM LESSONS

BABY SWIM SWIM

2-4 months

This class focuses on water comfort and child bonding, and it does not entail water submersion.  It is a fun and stimulating activity to do with your child. Also, it is scientifically demonstrated that very early exposure to the water enhances nerve fiber growth between neurons through repetition of exercises.  These new nerve pathways set down intricate neural networks that direct a child’s higher level brain development.
