Lessons are always one on one for our certified instructors are able to tailor to every students skill and comfort level. We believe that your child should have our undivided attention! We want each child to experience success and use positive reinforcement to recognize each accomplishment no matter how small.Involvement is strongly encouraged. Students attend 10 min. sessions every Mon - Fri. Repetition and Consistency are crucial elements for young children to conquer and acquire new skills.
Lessons for a 6-12 month old focus on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.
Lessons for children 1-6 years old focus on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.
