Infants & Toddlers

Children are born with a natural affinity for the water. The sooner they are started back in the water, the quicker they learn and the less likely it is that they will grow afraid of it. This program is designed for children from ages 3 months through 3 years old and will allow you and your child to take the first steps towards a lifetime of swimming proficiency, together. That’s right….you join your child in the water! Each half hour session is supervised by a specially trained instructor who will lead you through a series of exercises and activities that will be fun and instructive for your child. The weekly routine that we observe teaches kids their primary skills of buoyancy, propulsion and breath control.

And, while developing these fundamental skills….your child is getting to spend quality time with you! In fact some psychologists suggest that the half hour of undivided attention and skin to skin contact that this program offers, has many benefits in the parent/child relationship.

KIDS FIRST® has trained more infants and toddlers over the past 15 years than any school in Mid-Atlantic region with over 100,000 families passing through our programs. Start your little one towards a lifetime of swimming proficiency today!


Mommy (or Daddy) & Me (infants and toddlers)

This beginner level program puts Mom (or Dad) in the water with their infant/toddler as early as possible. We work to develop the natural instincts that a child has for the water, as well as the primary skills of buoyancy, propulsion and breath control.KIDS FIRST® provides one of the leading programs in the country for developing young swimmers.


Private Instruction (2 years to adults)

A program that offers one-on-one training for the beginner through intermediate swimmer. The child will progress through the skill levels, while developing balance, confidence and swimming skills with their own personal instructor. Following a half-hour lesson, children are invited to stay to practice for a half hour.
