Baby & Me

 

These classes are for children ages 4 months-36 months of any background, experience, or ability level. FSS offers over 50 baby classes, six days-a-week! 

 

The Basics

  • Recurring 30-minute swim lessons every week: same day, same time, same teacher
  • For ages 4 months to 3 years (must switch to private lessons at 3 years)
  • Group classes of up to 6 baby students (with 1 adult helper per student)
  • No pre-set sessions: you start when you want and stop when you want.
  • Cloth swim diapers required for any swimmers not fully potty-trained 

 

 

Age Groups
We divide our Baby & Me into two age groups: Guppies (4 months – 17 months)
and Minnow
s (18 months – 3 years). This division is strictly according to age
(and attendant motor and communication development), not swim experience.
Don’t worry if at first your baby seems behind other kids in th
eir group —
it’
s beneficial for them to see what they can accomplish). Lesson content varies
slightly by age group; see below for lesson content information.

We also offer mixed-age Fishbowl baby classes (4 months – 3 years).
This is perfect for age-gap friends/siblings who want to swim together.

An advanced class, Goldfish, is available for advanced swimmers
upon instructor recommendation. 

 

Cost
$14 per lesson per baby student

With no sessions to pre-pay for, our participants pay by the month (with payment due
on the 1st of the month). There are discounts available for
paying 2 or more months in advance.

Wait times can vary greatly depending on your needs and availability; our typical participant waits one to three months for a spot. Once you sign up for a lesson spot, it’s yours until you tell us otherwise. If you decide to discontinue lessons part-way through a month you’ve already paid for, you will be refunded according to the amount of notice given. See below for a list of current baby class days, times, & locations.

If you want to start right away or think recurring weekly lessons won’t work for you, try our drop-in lessons!

Unsure about jumping straight into a regular class? Test the waters in one of our quarterly Baby Swim Clinics, special intro courses designed specifically for a group of brand-new swimmers (including babies as young as 1 month old).
