Parent-Child Level B: For children 18 months - 3 years old with two or more previous sessions in the water. Children will require flotation support at all times, and parental presence and support in the water. Parents interested in signing up their child for preschool aquatics during the next session will be transitioned from parental presence to an instructor-led class without parental presence in the water. This is to encourage independence in the water required for preschool aquatics and will give parents an idea on if their child is ready for preschool aquatics or not. Parents and instructors will work together to determine the timeline best for each child if this transition is needed.
