leap frog

STAGE B+ WATER EXPLORATION Ages 3 – 4 years

Starting out as a parent/child class, toddlers are transitioned to a child only level. The parent or caregiver accompanies the child for the first few classes where the focus is on water adjustments and beginning swimming skills. The child will alternate between working with the adult and with one of the instructors. The goal is to slowly have the parent participation phased out (from being in the pool to sitting on the benches in the pool area to waiting outside in the pool hallway or observation area). Children are required to wear a swim diaper if not potty trained.
