How to Choose the Best Lessons For Your Child

Parent-Tot Swimming Lessons:

Parent-tot lessons are designed for younger children, typically between 4 months to 2 years old, accompanied by a parent or other caregiver.

These lessons are an introduction to water safety, including floating and breath control. 

Parent-tot lessons would be a great fit for your child if:

  • Your child can hold his head up on his own.
  • Your child is between 4 and 28 months old.
  • You want to join your child in the water.
  • You want to get a jump start on water safety and brain development.
  • You want to prepare your child for private instruction

Parent-tot lessons offer an opportunity for parents or caregivers to bond with their child in a water environment. The focus is on introducing water play, basic movements, and developing trust between the child and their caregiver. It helps young children become comfortable with water and prepares them for private swimming lessons as they grow and acclimate to the water.

Private Swimming Lessons:

Private lessons offer one-on-one instruction between the swimmer and the instructor. This personalized attention allows the student to progress quickly and master water safety and survival skills. We offer private lessons in three different formats: weekly recurring, fast track, and punch pass.

We recommend private instruction for all children 24 months + who cannot swim on their own. 

Private Recurring:

  • You can come on the same day and time every week.
  • Your child is ready to learn strokes.
  • Your child is comfortable in the water.
  • You want to maintain your child’s skills as they grow.

Fast Track:

  • Your child is four or younger OR your child is new to swimming.
  • You or your child are afraid of the water.
  • You are preparing for a vacation or summer swimming.
  • Your child is still learning basic safety skills.

Punch Pass

  • You want to supplement your child’s regularly scheduled lessons.
  • You cannot come at a consistent day and time every week.
  • Your child is adaptable to swimming with multiple instructors.

For best results, we recommend starting with 1-2 fast track sessions and then transitioning to weekly recurring lessons. If you can’t make a fast-track session work, weekly recurring lessons are still an option. We recommend punch-pass classes for those who don’t have a consistent schedule or want to supplement their regular lessons as time allows.

Group Swimming Lessons:

Group lessons are an important part of your child’s water safety training. Once your child can comfortably swim across the pool on their own, they ready to join a group class. Our group classes focus on endurance, water safety skills, social swimming, and stroke development. Learning to interact safely with other children in the water is an important life skill and a stepping stone to safely enjoying the water outside of swimming lessons.

Your child is ready to join a group class if:

  • Your child can comfortably and independently swim across the pool unassisted.
  • You want your child to build endurance in a longer class.
  • You want your child to learn social swimming skills.
  • You want your child to become more comfortable swimming independently outside of swimming lessons.
