Consistency in attendance is key. Toddlers and young children do best with short lessons multiple times per week, rather than one long lesson. We use a variety of proven methods from swim schools and infant toddler programs.
•Lessons begin with the parent/caregiver handing the child to the instructor in the pool.
•If your child is reluctant to get in the water, we ask that you reassure them by focusing on the skills we are working on rather than their emotions. Your child needs your encouragement not your sympathy. As your child becomes familiar with the process we will concentrate on particular skills.
We do several check out lessons in clothing to see if your child could perform skills equally well if he/she fell into the water while fully clothed.
