StarBabies™ (Adult and infant ages 6 months - 18 months)

         and StarTots™ (Adult and toddler ages 18 months - 3 years)

The purpose of these courses are to develop in very young children a high comfort level in the water while at the same time training the adults who accompany them in the water safety and drowning prevention. These courses do not teach children to become accomplished swimmers or to survive in the water; however they do provide a confidence-building, fun, and loving experience. One adult must be in the water with each child. Swim diapers required.
