  • Our local college offered mom and me swim where the moms got in the water and followed instructions on teaching their baby. The ages were 6 months to 3 years.

  • I always had my kids in the water from the first summer, just to get them used to the water. My 2 yo (born 11/13/08) learned to float last summer and we were working on him kicking and moving his arms, not sure if he'll actually get there this summer or not. My older ones all learned at 3 and 4 depending on their abilities and birthdates. I swam competitively when I was growing up and feel very confident about teaching my kids to swim.
