Parent & Tot 1, 2, and 3 Years Old
(Back to Lifesaving Society Overview)
Spend quality time with your child while you both have fun and learn and socialize. Through structured in-water interaction between parent and child, we stress the importance of play in developing water-positive attitudes and skills. We provide Lifesaving Society Water Smart® tips on keeping your child safe in any aquatic setting. Certified instructors provide guidance and answers to your questions.
We've organized the content of each level like this:
• Entries and exits
• Surface support
• Underwater skills
• Swim to Survive® skills
• Movement / Swimming skills
As an integral part of the Swim for Life® Program, Water Smart education provides information and experiences that helps participants make smart decisions when in, on and around water and ice. Because activities and progressions are based on child development, parents register in the level appropriate for their child's age.
