Overview

Toddlers are always fun to be around - they are bubbly, talkative and full of energy. Toddlers at this age are generally fearful of water. They tend to cry when they get into the water and may refuse to go into the water all together. It may take a couple of tries before they actually get in the water. They generally tend to stop crying after 2 or 3 classes. So, at Fort Aquatics, for Toddler swimming sessions, we encourage parents to be inside the water for this age group. The children will need individual attention and would feel more secure if the parents were in the water. The age group for this program is 18 months to 3 years of age. In toddler swim classes, a child is always accompanied by a parent or guardian in the water.

Guppies Level 1

This is the entry level toddler swimming program at Fort Aquatics where the focus is water adjustment. Key to this program is allowing your child to experience buoyancy and water safety techniques. There will be a basic introduction to back floating, kicking skills, submersions, pool safe entry and exit and wall walking. But the most important thing in this program is to remove the fear of water and allow the child to enjoy the buoyancy. The Swim Instructor makes the environment very friendly, plays a few games, conducts a few activities and sings familiar songs to make the child feel at ease. The parent plays an active role in making the child feel safe and follows what the instructor is doing. In this way the child is busy enjoying the class and not fearfully crying of the water.
