Celebrating its 25th year in the Puget Sound, Safe N Sound Swimming has two locations with different classes at each pool. At the Seattle location, there are parent and child classes for infants from 6 months to 36 months. Mom or Dad is in the water with the child, introducing the child to the water and making it a fun experience. At the Bothell location, children from ages 3-10 are offered 15 minute one-on-one lessons with an instructor, or are given 30 minute small group lessons, with 3:1 or 4:1 instruction.

Waterbabies is offered at pools in Bellevue, Sammamish and Everett. Their philosophy is to teach parents how to teach their children to be comfortable in water and learn to swim. Parents are very involved in their child’s swim lessons. At 5 months, babies and their parents can take the Bathtub Babies workshop, a 90 minute class which focuses on bonding and spends time on land and in the water. Classes are offered for children up through early elementary years, even classes for children over the age of 6 who have never had swimming lessons in the past.
