Flying Fish will teach a skill-based acquisition curriculum. After your child displays a mastery of skills from one level, they will immediately be introduced and taught the next level of skills. On your child's first day of lessons an evaluation will occur and we will quickly have your child placed at the correct level.

Our parent tadpole programs develop skills weekly through song and play. These skills include back floating, propulsion, submerssions and overall safety skills. These classes are designed for bonding between parent and baby and for both parties to learn the weekly skills. The two different levels are defined by age but also by comfort level. If a younger swimmer is comfortable and ready to learn more advanced skills they will be allowed to move up to the next level.
Parent Tadpole 1 (6 mos-18 mos) - This course is designed to introduce the youngest of swimmers to the water. In this class swimmer and parent will engage in several activities to have fun in the water and teach babies to hold their breath. Eventually baby will learn to blow bubbles as well as assisted front and back floats.
Parent Tadpole 2 (19 mos- 3 yrs) - This course is designed for more advanced young swimmers. In this course we work to develop independent skills. These skills include independently floating, submerging and climbing out of the pool. This course also explores separation between parent and swimmer. Another goal of this course is to confidently attend a class with parent out of the water.
