PROGRAMS & CLASSES 

AQUA TOTS SWIM SCHOOL
9 Gerhard Road, Plainview
917-653-6335

Discover the healthy benefits of early swim lessons, including motor, cognitive, and emotional development. By giving a child sensory experiences in swim class, his or her neural memories of motor skills become more precise, resulting in a stronger, more coordinated child. Stimulation causes a child’s neurons to grow interconnecting fibers and twigs reaching out to other neurons. The more synapses a person has, the more capable he or she is of learning. The more organized the brain is, the easier it is to instill self-control and self-discipline. Swimming is wonderful for a child’s brain!
