Starbaby Swim Lessons
StarBaby is our unique parent and child learn-to-swim program that provides a foundation of confidence in children ages 4 to 36 months. With curriculum United States Swim School Association’s established guidelines, this isn’t your typical sing-along in the water – Our instructors guide children through developmentally appropriate activities that promote play, exploration, and encouragement while giving parents tools to encourage family fun safely in the water.
The program is broken down into four levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Transition. All students start in our Beginner level and from there, have the opportunity to progress at their own pace. Our warm water pool is the first step to providing a nurturing environment to help young children become comfortable in the water. From there, our energetic instructors cater fun activities to each child, ensuring a positive experience with water for our students. The result of this program is developing students who are comfortable underwater, back floating, and swimming with breathing. When children progress to independent classes, they have the skills AND confidence to be successful.
For the safety and health of your children and our teachers all students under the age of 3 are REQUIRED to wear a reusable cloth swim diaper, even those who are potty-trained. Swim diapers need to have tight fitting elastic legs and waist. They are available for purchase at all of our locations. We do allow disposable swim diapers in the pool under the cloth diaper if you choose to “double diaper”.
Starbaby Swim Lesson Levels
StarBaby Beginner introduces parents and students between the ages of 4 months and 3 years old to the basics of swimming and water safety. All families new to our StarBaby Program start in this level.
StarBaby Intermediate continues progressions started in the Beginner class. Many of the Beginner level songs and activities are incorporated for student comfort and consistency, creating an easier transition to more difficult skills.
Starbaby Advanced incorporates many of the same skills of our White and Red level group classes. By learning White and Red level skills before turning 3, students are more confident and safer in the water earlier in life.
While some students happily wave to mom and dad sitting on deck or in the viewing area, other students need smaller steps to reach that point. Starbaby Transition is designed to help these students reach that same level of confidence.
