As we wait for the return of warmer weather, break out the bathing suits and splash around in the pool for a few hours.

It’s fun to make a splash in the pool but even with lifeguards on duty, water safety is important. Our families spend more time at the leisure pool because our kids have gained water confidence in swim class. If you haven’t started swim lessons yet, check out Aqua-Tots Swim School. With 7 metro Detroit locations, it’s easy to find one near you. Our kids look forward to class every week and absolutely LOVE their instructors. BONUS: You can try your first swim class for free!
