JCC MetroWest’s Aquatic Department proudly offers Parent and Child Swim Lessons which are led by professional instructors, provide a balanced program that teaches swimming skills and how to be safe in the water, and ensures not only a safe environment but also a fun one!

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. Inspiring your child to develop a life-long love of and respect for the water is the ultimate goal.
