Has anyone taken a swim class/lesson with your Two-or Three-Year-Old?

I haven't taken my kids, but I used to teach classes for that age group. I didn't teach the mommy-and-me type, I just taught the intro to swimming classes (and others). Anyway, anything that teaches your child how to be safe and comfortable in the water is a good idea. I'm a proponent of the classes, and I do recommend them. That being said, I'm hoping to teach my kids myself (we'll see if this backfires!)

Yep... I agree! I want my son to be safe and since he is a dare devil in the water, it is better to be safe than sorry. I think I'll call the local rec center and see what they offer. Best of luck to you teaching your kids yourself! I hope it goes smoothly!
