Dinosauers for sale...

The dinosauers we use in class are faux leather bean bags, which float. These are excellent to use in the bath, home pool/jacuzzi, or just playing in general. We over ordered and decided to offer them to you folks (for purchase). There are 6 different dinosauers (or a set of 6); each is being sold for $8.00 (cash is best). First come, first served. Limited supplies. If interested, please let us know so we can have them available at your lesson.

 



If your swimmer has outgrown their wetsuit, please do consider donating it so the other swimmers may borrow one while in their lessons.
Mahalo Nui!

Sunscreen March Song from Five Alive

Five Alive Videos

Josh the Baby Otter

Book & Song
  • A tale promoting water safety for children.
  • The leading cause of injury death for 1 to 4 year olds in the United States is drowning.
  • Education of our young children as well as adults is vital in preventing these senseless accidents.
  • Talk to young children about STAYING AWAY FROM WATER UNLESS THEY ARE WITH AN ADULT.
  • Check into infant and toddler water training classes. We think we will always be with our children when they are around water. Believe me there are times when we may not be.
