Your child's swim lesson experience should be empowering and produce lasting water skills. But to teach skill acquisition the right way for each child, at the proper pace, to the highest degree, integrating work and play – takes experience, passion and expertise.

My original concern was not only the time but also the cost of the program. Now, seeing how safe Ashley, 2 years, is in the water shows me these lessons are invaluable. She loves to swim and I love that she can. Infant Aquatics is priceless! - Matt Booth, Lyons

My three year old is diving underwater, bringing up rings and floating on his back like an otter. He can swim fully clothed with shoes, he can recover himself onto his back and swim to the side of the pool or steps when pushed backwards underwater or when he slides off a raft into deep water. I am breathing a heavy sigh of relief that we can go on vacation fully prepared. - Joanne Drummond, Boulder

I wish I had started Emma in Infant Aquatics when she was younger and possibly could have avoided the stress and trauma of nearly losing our two year old. I am so thankful for your program. It is the best! - Rebecca Maytubby, Boulder

I was totally astonished by how effective and efficient the Infant Aquatics techniques were; I've never seen anything like it (this coming from an ex-Red Cross WSI). - Stacy Duncan, Longmont

After learning to swim-float-swim even having two toddlers in the pool is fun now. They jump in and feel safe and comfortable in the water so much so that I can relax and let them play. I don't feel like I need to be holding them so a whole new realm of fun is open to us. I will admit that during the individual lessons, my busy schedule felt crunched even more. But before I knew it, my little ones had graduated into group lessons and everyday in the water was fantastic. It is so worth the time and money. - Koleen Archibold, Longmont

Six weeks ago, my kids would not even go near the water, now swimming is our most favorite family activity. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!! - Tracey Chiang, Lafayette
