StarBabies Adult & Infant 6-18 months / StarTots Adult & Toddler 18-36 months
Start building your child’s interest in swimming and in-water confidence early with Adult & Me Swim Classes. Have fun with playful songs and development-focused activities while learning how to keep your child safe in the water.
Designed for young children, the purpose of this program to develop a high level of comfort in the water, while at the same time training the adults who accompany them in water safety and drowning prevention. This program does not teach children to become accomplished swimmers or to survive in the water independently; it does provide confidence-building in a fun and safe environment. For those children who are developmentally ready, it will start to build foundational skills toward the Learn to Swim program.

Registration works on a first-come, first-serve basis:
As the Adult in the Baby & Tot classes you do not need to know how to swim, but basic comfort in the water is required. Your Instructor will show you everything you need to know to keep yourself and your child as safe as possible in the water.
If you are not feeling confident, we offer a free 15 minute assessment in the pool. The instructor will ensure that you have the comfort level expected for the Baby & Tot classes, as well as show you what kind of things you will be doing during the classes to ensure that you feel prepared and confident before starting.
Don't let fear or lack of comfort in the water prevent your child from learning such an important life-saving skill as swimming. Many of our parents also take the Adults Swim classes prior to starting classes with their child or even during the same swim term. Click here to read more about Adults Swim.
