During your month-long session, your toddler will develop his or her floating and breathing basics, and will be ready to swim the English Channel in no time. Come session’s end, parents will be shown how to provide continuing instruction. SWIMkids USA also offers classes for all ages and levels, so you may choose to further your child's swimming and safety education by registering for one of the consecutive classes or a fun summer program.
