baby swim lessons?

I just signed up for mommy and infant swim classes. I am really excited. We have a pool so I am taking precaution. Have any of you taken classes before? Did your baby enjoy them?? My daughter is 8 months old. Thanks for your replies in advance.
Well we do have a fence and it is locked but I can't move. My house is on the market but no one is buying so it's not an option, hence that's why I am taking swim lessons.
I didn't say I was giong to leave her alone around the pool. Of course I am going to take every precaution but I thought it would be a fun thing to do and it would provide the benefit of her learning how to swim. I grew up with a pool and we always had some watch us even well into our teenage years so I don't agree, 8 is still too young
Thanks Hannah's mommy :-)

Answer:

WOW...you got some strange advice!!

My daughter is 15 months and we have been taking swim classes together since she was 8 months old. She loves it!! She is getting very comfortable in the water. She knows how to climb out the side of the pool, and knows how to sit down on the side of the pool to enter.

Of course she isn't going to learn how to properly swim...it is more to get them use to the water and not be afraid. I find it a wonderful time for my daughter and myself...I look forward to every Wed. when we have class.

You are doing the right thing by getting her use to the water.
