Child Programs

The warm water pools at Galter LifeCenter provide an ideal setting for your child  to learn to swim. Our aquatics programs and services are designed to ensure that your child has a safe and fun experience in the water. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment that encourages children to want to learn water safety, and to enjoy swimming now and in the future.

All of our swim instructors are Water Safety and CPR certified. Our lesson plans have been created with a progressive learning model starting from 6 months old, all the way to a student who is ready for competitive swimming.  

Our aquatics programs have received national recognition from the Medical Fitness Association for our instructor training process.
