Aqua Tots

Aqua Tots

Do you want to start your little one in the water? Do you enjoy being in the water too? Aqua Tots is an exciting program for you and your infant or toddler. Aqua Tots will help you show your little one to discover and explore how fun it is to play and swim in the water with you. The child must be accompanied in the water by 1-2 parents or guardians as the instructor will teach you how to acclimate your child to the water.
