Children, 6 months to 3 years will enjoy the many water-readiness activities provided by our YMCA aquatics instructors. This is one of the most important skills every child should master—feeling safe in the water. Children progress from water adjustment to basic skills while working with parents. One adult must be in the water with their child at all times. Ratio is 10:1.
