Aquatic Safety Training


Infant & Toddler

No child should ever be considered drown-proof, regardless of skills.

Swim with Kim

Drowning is the number one cause of accidental deaths in children ages one to four. While there is no way to drown-proof anyone we can help prevent drowning by teaching skills that become options in the water.  Additionally, awareness and education about the many dangers a child can innocently encounter in and around the water are crucial.  We currently offer three types of classes, the first focusing solely on teaching survival skills to children ages 6 months to 3 years. The second is our early water acclimation class for babies 3-6 months and a parent or caregiver. The third is once or twice weekly class attendance for ages 6 months up to 3 years. 

Being Safe While Having Fun

Our goal is to create safe, water-loving, lifelong swimmers!  It is our belief that each successful student is the result of a group effort. We know that each child is their own individual and we customize each lesson to their specific needs. Parents have the option of observing lessons poolside,  getting in once a week, or engaging in the lessons from the beginning. Regardless of which course is chosen,  parental involvement allows the parents to utilize our techniques with their children. Once safety skills are accomplished we move on to utilizing those skills within water play and eventually the foundation to progress into stroke work.  Classes are one-on-one lasting ten to twenty minutes depending on if you are choosing the instructor/child self-rescue class or the parent/child water acclimation class. Skill level dictates how often class is attended. New students must attend the class for four days a week. Classes are held year-round at Chesapeake Bay Dive Center in Virginia Beach.
