On Saturday, May 18, Aqua-Tots is hosting an all-ages festival promoting National Water Safety Month. The festival is a joint effort of several health and recreation organizations—including the American Red Cross and the World Waterpark Association—to promote safer water practices.<p>
In pools heated to a comfortable 90 degrees, Aqua-Tots' experienced instructors pass their aquatic knowledge on to younger generations. Before taking to the water, the team sorts prospective swimmers between the ages of 6 months and 12 years into one of eight swim levels along with similarly skilled and aged peers. Instructors work alongside the parents of infants and toddlers to practice water-safety skills and other swimming fundamentals such as blowing bubbles and singing whale songs. More advanced swimmers, meanwhile, master different strokes and techniques, and instructors incorporate more advanced concepts as their students progress through the levels. Parents can rest assured that their children are in good hands—each Aqua-Tots instructor has completed 32 hours in the company's Lessons for Life training program and a rigorous water-safety instructor exam.
In addition to swimming lessons, Aqua-Tots offers a number of other programs, including an Adaptive Aquatics program that features water-therapy sessions designed for children with special needs. It also donates a portion of its proceeds to World Vision, a nonprofit organization that helps children and families worldwide gain access to such necessities as clean water, food, medical supplies, and education.
