At Sunshine Swim Center, we believe drowning’s are 100% preventable. Supervision is key when children are around any body of water. Our infant swim lessons work towards teaching your child water safety survival skills, but should never be a replacement for adult supervision. We use a gentle, fun loving approach to help your swimmer feel safe and comfortable in the water as they learn lifesaving skills. Our infant programs are meant for swimmers under the age of three.
Sunshine Swim Center offers two infant swim programs:
- A parent participation program (Parent/Tot); group class with several families.
- Parent tot 6-15 months (Parent Tot One)
- Parent tot 16-36 months (Parent Tot Two)
- A private swim lesson program; infant work one- on- one with an instructor.
Parent Tot Infant Swim Lessons:
Our Parent Tot Program, for children 6 months to 36 months old, will progress your baby from learning to be comfortable in the water to advanced water safety skills such as; floating, kicking and rolling onto their back after falling into the water. An instructor will work alongside you and your swimmer to guide your child through the various safety skills. Practice and repetition are key to your child’s progress, it’s important to remember, each child is unique and will advance at their own pace. These classes are a great way to bond with your child, you’ll sing songs, play games and share in memorable moments.
Two Different Programs
As you know, there are significant differences in the motor skills, communication, emotional and cognitive development in the span of 3 years; between infant and toddler years.
We have been listening to our swim families and developed 2 new parent tot programs. They are built around the developmental stages of 6-15 month old’s and 16-36 month old’s.
Gearing activities to be appropriate for the child development stages of these two groups.
While the younger age group incorporates many songs and activities to be a fun and energized program where safety and water exploration are the main goals, the older group is more based on skill development with less singing and more activities focused on the fundamentals of swimming; such as effective kicking and swimming with faces in the water.
Classes are 25 minutes long and meet 2 days a week for 4 weeks.

Private Infant Swim Lessons:
Our private infant swim lessons offer one-on-one attention for your little swimmer. The instructor will work with your child on skills such as; floating, kicking, blowing bubbles, rolling on to their back, and holding onto the wall. Each lesson is 25 minutes long. Repetition is important when teaching infants to swim; as with learning any new skill, sitting up, crawling, walking… Practicing a little each day or every few days helps to build a strong foundation for these new skills.
