Infant and Toddler Water Readiness

This program is intended to develop in young children (6 months through 3 years) a comfort level in and around water, as well as a readiness for learning to swim. It is important to understand that this program is not designed to teach children to become accomplished swimmers, or even to survive in the water on their own. This program provides information and techniques for parents to orient their children to the water and to learn how to safely supervise all water activities.
