Parent and Tot Levels

These classes will help you and your child learn fun water play together. Children will be oriented to water, explore buoyancy and movement, and build confidence in a safe environment.

SPLASHERS

As the first level of our YMCA L'il Dipper program, Splashers is a great way to introduce babies 4–18 months old to the water. Parents get in on the fun by participating with their children.

At this early stage, children are still learning a lot about their environment. The goal of Splashers is to make children and parents comfortable in the water together, and (of course) to learn to splash with arms and legs!

Splashers is led by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who knows how to create a fun, stimulating environment for babies to get their splash on!

BUBBLERS

The second level of our YMCA L'il Dipper program, Bubblers, is for children 18 months–3 years old. We work with you to introduce your child to new movements in the water, including holding the wall, kicking feet, and blowing bubbles. Parents get in on the fun by participating with their children.

Bubblers is led by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who knows how to create a fun, stimulating environment for you and your little one, encouraging bonding and skill development in the water.
