The purpose of the Parent and Child Aquatic program is to help young children become comfortable in and around the water so they are ready to learn to swim. While the class is designed to raise the comfort level of the child, it is also intended to educate the parent or caregiver in basic water skills so they are better equipped to aid in their child's aquatic education and ensure that their child stays safe in all water activities. Children two to three years will be introduced to equipment used in preschool lessons and will work with instructors on taking individual direction to help transition from parent and child to preschool swim classes.

Calling it another hospital is like calling Frisco another city. Introducing the all-new, altogether different Texas Health Hospital Frisco. There’s no place in America that’s quite like Frisco. That’s why it deserves a hospital that’s one of a kind. Texas Health Hospital Frisco has everything you would anticipate from an advanced medical center, including a collaboration with world-renowned UT Southwestern. But it also has touches you wouldn’t expect, like boot camps and yoga classes, walking trails and natural building materials like wood and limestone, and a rainwater irrigation system. And that makes us more than a hospital, we’re a destination for your health and well-being.
