Child Programs

The warm water pools at Galter LifeCenter provide an ideal setting for your child  to learn to swim. Our aquatics programs and services are designed to ensure that your child has a safe and fun experience in the water. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment that encourages children to want to learn water safety, and to enjoy swimming now and in the future.

All of our swim instructors are Water Safety and CPR certified. Our lesson plans have been created with a progressive learning model starting from 6 months old, all the way to a student who is ready for competitive swimming.  

Our aquatics programs have received national recognition from the Medical Fitness Association for our instructor training process.

Pool area rules for children and parents
  • To comply with Illinois health and safety regulations, everyone must shower before entering the pool.
  • Food, clean street shoes and cell phone use are not allowed on the pool deck. Drinks with twist tops are allowed.
  • When taking a picture please ask the instructor for permission and photograph your child only.
  • If your child is not potty trained please be sure they wear water proof diapers designed for swimming.  
  • Videotaping is not permitted. 
  • All children on the pool deck must be supervised by an adult.

Pool area usage
  • Entrance to pool areas is through the locker rooms.
  • Please use hallway only if required due to age of opposite sex children. The hallway entering the East Pool is a “Quiet Zone” due massage appointments taking place. Please use inside voices when in hallway outside East Pool area.

Locker room policy for children
  • Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in the locker rooms at all times.
  • Children four years old and younger can accompany a parent/guardian in the locker room, regardless of the child's gender but we ask that the parent/guardian use the designated family changing area of the locker rooms to change the child.
  • Children over four years of age will need to be accompanied by a same gender parent/guardian in the locker room.  Otherwise they must use the family changing rooms located near the West Pool.
