  • THANKS & SUMMARY Warm Water Swim Class for Fearful 4 y.o.

    We did Imagine at CBE with wetsuits but I also ran into the same issue. The water at the eastern athletic facility by grand army plaza was much warmer (and cleaner!) but was too far away for us.
  • Re: Baby & me swim classes

    I took my 8 mo old daughter to the parent and child swim class at Congregation Beth Elohim (CBE). It was fabulous! The water was warm (I understood they warmed the water the day before, specifically for the tykes), the activities and songs are fun, and there was a 'free swim' period at the end of each class, for those kids who loved being in the pool and wanted to do some extra splashing. The attendants are very attentive - I always felt everyone in the pool was well monitored, and in good hands. I've taken a parent and kiddo swim class elsewhere where that was not the case, so an alert lifeguard is something I'm sensitive about. In short - I have no affiliation with CBE but have only good things to say about the kiddie swim class at CBE. Oh - and the change room floors are heated - luxury!
