Swimming class for babies is a bit of a joke, to be perfectly honest. It's basically 20-30 minutes of pulling them around in the water singing songs. While it was rather expensive for what it was, it was a great opportunity to allow the girls to explore the water.
But, if you have access to a pool, you can sing songs in the water for free! The Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Hospital in Toronto has a Little Fish swim program. For $3 ($30/10 sessions), you can take your young child or baby into the pool for free swim (no lessons). They have several sessions each day so it's very convenient for all schedules. This is what I was planning on doing until I found out that my brother's condo building has a pool. My brother, Rob, and I took the girls for a swim at his condo pool for the first time today.

I'm glad that the girls are getting into the water at an early age, especially since my family spends some time at the cottage (which is on a lake) in the summer!
