my child cry?
a normal response for young children and will stop as they grow
more comfortable. Give
the child a chance to bond with his/her teacher. If you are
worried and waiting for them to get upset, then your child will
sense it and become stressed as well. The best way for you to
put your child at ease is by acting relaxed and showing that
you trust the instructor.
How do I prepare
for a lesson?
The child needs
to be ready and in their bathing suit when the instructor arrives.
It is usually a good idea to take them to the bathroom before
their lesson. If they are still potty training please make sure
they are in "swimmers" or another form of water safe
training pants. Goggles are optional. Please clear the pool
area of as many distractions as possible (large toys, pets,
etc.) and make sure the pool water is at the proper temperature
and chemical levels for swimming.
Can I leave
during the lesson?
There must be a parent/guardian
on the premises at all times during a swim lesson. If we are
using a community pool then one must be present on the pool
What if we
miss a lesson?
24 hours notice is
required for you to reschedule a lesson for any reason, otherwise
the class cannot be rescheduled. If the instructor cancels a
class then the class will be rescheduled at no additional cost
to you. PLEASE NOTE: We still swim on cloudy days!
How long does
it take for a child to learn to swim?
Each child comes
to us with a different set of factors that can affect their
progress. We work with your child building their confidence
and ability at a pace that makes them comfortable. We never
physically force a child to do something that makes them uncomfortable.
Patience and persistence can make learning to swim a rewarding
experience for your child! You are always welcome to observe
our lessons and inquire about their progress.
How do I pay
for swimming lessons?
We accept cash or
a personal check made out to the instructor. Payment for the
first month is due at the time of the first lesson. We also
require that you sign an agreement before the first lesson can
you have any other questions please contact us!
