Parent/Child & Preschool | Westfield Area Y

Parent/Child (6 months - 3 years)

The primary objective of these 30-minute classes is to get both parent and child comfortable in the water.

The child will learn to move through the water while the parent/guardian will become aware of how to teach the child to be safe and enjoy the water. 

Classes are designed to allow the child to have fun while the parent guides the swimmer to learn aquatics skill through games and other activities.

Classes: Parent/Child 1 (6 months - 2 years), Parent/Child 2 (2 to 3½ years) and Sunnies (2 -3 years)

Preschool (3-5 years)

Children must be 3 before the first class, are taught without parent, and are 30 minutes. 

Children are taught the basic skills that are the building blocks of swimming including pool and boating safety and the use of personal flotation devices. 

Swimmers may have no experience with the water in this program or be ready to swim the length of the pool with a front and back crawl.

Classes: Pike, Pike 1, Pike 2, Eels, Electric Eels, Rays, Stingrays (4 & 5 only).
