In the last few days we have received many emails from people in the Weehawken, Union City, West New York, and Guttenberg are wanting to sign-up for our baby swim classes. They know that summer is only 10 weeks away; and that babies are drawn to water and quickly discover the fun of splashing it. This summer, they want to have a great time by the local pools (we are looking at you Union City Swimming Pool & Rec) or beach with their little ones!
