Preschool Swim Lessons

Learning To Swim Is Fun!

The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim courses offered at our facilities are designed to give your child a positive learning experience and teaches lifelong swimming skills.

Regardless of your child’s swimming ability, you can play a critical role in guiding, caring for, supervising, motivating and working with your child during this experience.
