Parent & Toddler lessons are offered for infants & toddlers 6 months to 4 years. While age limits are a guideline, the typical ages of those in our Parent tot class are 6 months to 3 years old. This class is appropriate for those children who need the mother, father, family member or guardian in the pool with them. One adult is required to accompany each child in this class.
It is our goal, in this class, to teach the parent how to teach the child to swim and be safe in, on or near the water. We will introduce holding techniques, suggest key phrases and demonstrate water safety skills that will assist the child as they transition to becoming more comfortable and open to learning new skills in the pool.
Seahorse Swim School introduces key motor skills used in swimming in our parent tot class while working to help the student adjust to the aquatic environment. These skills, when taught at an early age, will help the student learn to swim quickly as they progress through our levels.
Parent Toddler classes are offered out of Seascape Sports Club March to October in Aptos on Saturdays in the Spring and Fall. During Summer, this class is also offered on Mon/ Wed in Aptos.
This class is also offered Summer mornings at the Elks Lodge in Santa Cruz.
