Such as hand holding, songs, games, cuing, glides, passes, scoops. The Instructor will explain to the mother the importance of familiarization in the water at a young age. In this class the mother is required to enter the water with their child. Mother & Child classes will be run with an instructor and up to 10 participants which includes the mother and the child. This class should require a 1:1 ratio of mother to child in the water. Meaning one mother, with one child.
