Parent Child Interaction (PCI)
Parent Child Interaction is a scheduled activity and allows parents or guardians to work with their child in the pool without a life jacket. The parent must be actively teaching/instructoring their child on swimming and being comfortable in the water during these times. These scheduled times are usually in 45 minute increments and scheduled times can be found on the interactive class schedule.
