Parent Tot – Entering the Water

Child and parent sit side by side with feet in the water, butt on the edge.

Parent puts their arm on top of child’s hands between the child’s legs.

The parent should always enter the water first.

Parent swings into the pool keeping hand on their child’s hands.

Once in the water, grasp child’s body or their hands.

We do this because we want to prevent the child from falling over. Infants are generally wobbly and we support them with our forearm and by holding their hands between their legs.
