Our Preschool Program is for children ages 6 months through 6 years. Our WSI Certified teachers are selected based on their background in aquatics and experience working with young children. We focus on consistency, teacher support, and creating a nurturing environment. This great introduction for your new swimmer provides a solid foundation for future years in the water. The preschool program maintains a low student/teacher ratio.
These classes are designed for children 6 yrs and older. Our focus is on learning to swim and stroke development. Stroke refinement and endurance are incorporated in the higher levels.

Longfellow Water Exercise classes are designed to accommodate various levels of ability. Our class members range from moderately paced to more powerful exercisers. Some participants benefit from increased recovery from surgery or injuries, while others are looking to enhance sports training and to speed up recovery from high impact workouts. Both groups get the full benefit of an improved cardiovascular system, increased strength and more flexibility. The water is unique because it allows for a simultaneous, total body workout. We also have coached Master’s Swim Workouts-fabulous for swimmers, tri-athletes, or anyone desiring to improve swim technique and to feel more comfortable in the water.
