As parents of three children, we believe in the importance of teaching kids about water safety and helping them to become confident swimmers. Also as parents, we know we have to take it into our hands to make sure our kids know how to behave, and survive, in a water environment. We want to assist you in doing so, by giving our area an indoor, year-round facility, where children can learn these important skills while enjoying the experience at the same time.

Help your child learn the critical life-saving swimming skills in a fun-filled environment under the careful watch of competent instructors and certified lifeguards.

Why Our Infant Classes Are Special!:

Baby swimming age classes have a few special features to make sure your little one gets the right start.

  • The water is always warm. Infants can become chilled very quickly, so it’s essential that the water be about 90 degrees to keep them safe. As a general rule, if you think the water is a comfortable temperature for you as soon as you get in the pool, it’s probably an excellent temperature for your baby.
  • We have small class sizes. We limit the infant classes to six children. Small class sizes make sure that our teachers can supervise all the babies and answer all the parents’ questions.
  • Classes are short. Our infant classes last about 30 minutes. Short courses are enough time to let the babies acclimate to the water, but it’s not long enough that they start getting tired and grumpy.

Pengu Swim center enroll kids as young as six months and older in specifically designed baby swimming lessons. Our swimming instructors have tailor-made swim classes to cater needs of individual child and age group.
