Lap Swimming Tips: Please enter the pool from the shallow end. To avoid accidents, when entering an occupied lane please get the first swimmers’ acknowledgement that you are there. Please get kickboards, pull buoys, etc. before entering the pool. 

Directions: If there are one or two swimmers in a lane, they may elect to split the lane in half. The entrance of a third person immediately changes the lane to “circle” swimming format. 

Speed: Please try to choose a lane with swimmers that most nearly match your speed.

Our Success Stories

The preschool classroom at the Early Learning Center is participating once again in the Adopt-A-Cow Program, in which they remotely adopt and follow the growth of a single cow. This year’s cow is named Sara and she lives on the Knebel Dairy Farm in Wisconsin. The Adopt-A-Cow Program is an opportunity for the children to learn more about animals, to follow the growth stages of their selected animal, and to grow along with her. Our children entered a video contest to win a trip to a farm, and are currently waiting to hear back about it. Through adopting Sara the cow, they can learn about ear tags, milk production, growth stages, and much more! They are also able to monitor the cow’s growth, receive updates, and learn about farms, animals and nutrition.
