Summer is quickly approaching and the idea of beaches and pools sound refreshing, but for parents with young children it might also sound scary. So we wanted to be a little more prepared this season and participate in a toddler friendly swim class.
My daughter and I had the pleasure of enjoying a trial swim class at SUNY Maritime Aquatic Community Class center. Where we were in a class with five other children and their parents. The class started with a calm introduction to the comfortable water temperature and then straight into it. We practiced short gliding across the water from parent to instructor, guided floating on the child’s back under a rainbow of pool noodles! Yes a RAINBOW of KaNoodles… that was my favorite part by far. The 45min class was tied up with an aqua rendition of the hooky pokey and my daughter’s favorite wheels on the bus.
As you may know swim classes in the Bronx area are hard to find and can be expensive, so you will be pleased when checking out the array of classes offered at SUNY Maritime’s Aquatic Center all instructed by highly impressive instructors.
