We could not have lucked out with a better teacher. He was really good with the kids and a lot of the class was teaching water safety - how to get in the pool, out of the pool, holding the kids in different positions to be safe and teaching them that the wall was safe. We did some kicking (on her front and back) and ended class with the hokey pokey!
He does use kids in the class to show everyone else how to do something. So, we know Liliana is not a fan of strangers holding her. He tried with her a couple of times and while she was fine in the water, she did not like being held by someone else...so something to work on!
