Swimming Should Be Fun
The philosophy of Munchkin Movement is that all children deserve to have the skills to be safe and proficient while having fun in and around the water.

Small Class Sizes
A maximum of 4-6 children per class ensures that your child receives plenty of individual attention.

Children Learn Swim Skills in a Social Setting
Children are encouraged to practice age appropriate motor skills and social skills are reinforced.

Session 2 – late fall 2016

Session 2 will start on November 14 (barring any cancellations for remaining classes in Session 1).  The session will run 6 weeks, ending December 20.

Due to November 8th being election day, I will not open registration until 9 pm.

The schedule is posted here.

How (and Why) to Opt-In to Receive Text Messages

I use this feature only to send out important information regarding cancellations or schedule changes. It’s especially helpful in case I need to cancel last minute due to weather, pool closure, etc. I will only send texts out to people who are registered at that time (you won’t get them if you’re not in a current session or the information doesn’t impact your lesson day or time).


For many people this is the best way to get in touch in a hurry, as not everyone checks their email throughout the day. It’s also a great way to get the information quickly so that you can pass it on to others who might be bringing your child to lessons (babysitters, grandparents, etc).
