A. Yes. If necessary, the parent is responsible for taking their child to the restroom during their class time.
Q. Is there a place to watch swim lessons?
A. Yes. We ask that the parents watch at a distance away from their swimmers as to not distract. There is also an observation deck and a glass viewing window in the lobby. Some parents may be asked to watch from the upstairs lobby area if a child is not a willing participant.
