Beginner Learn to Swim (BLTS) classes begin from 2 years of age. This level is designed to provide your child with the fundamental survival skills needed to be safe in the water. Class sizes are small (two students to one teacher). Our instructors strive to create a trusting and nurturing relationship with each student. The lessons introduce vital skills such as blowing bubbles, kicking, doggie paddling, floating, submerging, jumping in and learning to safely enter and exit the water by themselves. Upon mastering the components in the BLTS level, students will progress to the Advanced learn to swim level!
