Hello Mamas!

DD and I recently took some Mom - Tot swim classes at the local recreation center. I'm not sure the experience was entirely a positive one. I don't know if the instructors were patient enough. She started with a love of the water - we had worked with her quite a bit this summer - and seems upset by it now. Does anyone have experience with the Y? Any other programs in Asheville area?

Thanks!

I am a memeber of the YMCa and our kids did not get much out of those lessons to be honest BUT I have a dear friend who teaches at the YWCA and her classes rock....

Bumping for you. I have no experience with the Y in Asheville but my DD and DS took lessons at the Y in Hendersonville - it was AWFUL. Never again. Hope you have better luck.

Thank you - I really appreciate it. Now, I'm wondering if it's worth the drive. (45 minutes each way)

I would suggest just going back to playing and having fun in the water. There is no need for that young of a child to have structured swim lessons.

Mars Hill College has swim lessons, although I am not sure for how young. I have heard good things about them.
Mars Hill community pool also has lessons for kids age 3 and over every summer.
