Early Childhood Swim Program
The JCC’s early childhood swim program focuses on water comfort and safety, while teaching basic swimming skills in a safe and supportive environment. In these innovative and fun-filled programs, parents are taught how to work safely in the water with their children.

PLEASE NOTE: All participants are required to take a health screening before entering the JCC. Please arrive 15 minutes early for the health screening. Parent or caregiver is required to wear a face mask that completely covers the nose and mouth at all times, except when in the pool. There will be no access to the locker rooms, so please come already showered and in your bathing suit. Your swim instructor will meet you at the health screening tent and escort you to the pool.
