Swim Level Descriptions:

Parent & Me and Pre-Beginner Classes

Parent & Me

Parent & Me swimming lessons are for children ages 18 months-3 years and their parents. It's an ideal starting point for kids who are very young or timid. Come learn and play with your child as they gain greater comfort in the water and you gain skills to help prepare your child to be a more confident swimmer. When completed, they will be comfortable in the water and ready to start the learning process. Some kids may stay at this level for safety reasons. Parents will be in the water along-side their child. Prerequisites: Willing to sit on the pool steps and get wet. This is a starting point for kids that are very young or scared.

Testimonial

by Camilla Blue
SwimLessonLydia I grew up at Warm Beach Camp and my first pool experience was there. When Warm Beach Camp announced that they were offering swimming lessons, it seemed appropriate to sign up my son and daughter, Daniel and Mercy, for the pre-beginner class.

My kids had opposite reactions to the entry level swimming class. Daniel hates the water, especially when water gets in his eyes. He dreaded the very idea of taking lessons. He was nervous and apprehensive, and I was worried that he would refuse to participate. On the other hand, Mercy couldn't have been more excited. She had such a fearless confidence that even before her first lesson began, she believed that she knew how to swim.

When arrived Monday night for the first class, our swim instructor, Lydia, did an amazing job of putting the kids at ease. Lydia was just wonderful! She was a natural with all the kids in the class. She first talked about getting one ear wet. Then the other. What about a nose? Then she had the kids splash her.

With each activity, my kid's confidence grew. All the way home they talked about how much fun they had and how excited they were for their next lesson. I love Warm Beach Camp!
