PARENT/CHILD AND ADAPTED AQUATICS CLASSES - SUMMER SESSION

Welcome to JCC MetroWest Parent & Child and Adapted Aquatics

For each level of Parent and Child Aquatics, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for infants and young children.

Routines and the familiar are extremely important to your young swimmer. Each class uses toys, songs, fun and games to keep the children engaged and enjoying the water experience, all the while teaching them basic aquatic skills.
