In Water Discovery, infants and toddlers are introduced to the aquatics environment.
Water Exploration focuses on learning body positions, blowing bubbles and practicing fundamental safety and aquatic skills.
Accompanied by a parent or guardian, infants and toddlers 6 months to 3 years old learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents and guardians learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.
