There are different levels for learn-to-swim to allow your child to start with basic skills and then move on to stroke technique and proper swim form. Each level they graduate from makes them a stronger swimmer. Our instructors are American Red Cross certified and enjoy the experience of teaching children how to be safe in and near the water.
