What if I’m asked to leave during my child’s swimming lesson?
Generally we ask parents to leave when the instructor has to compete for your childs’ attention, whether crying, being silly or just not focusing in general. We feel that your child will get a better swimming lesson if they’re allowed to concentrate fully on the instructor. You’re welcome to watch the lesson from the pool deck or wait in the reception/recreation areas.
What if my child refuses to get changed for swimming or doesn’t want to go in the water?
If your child does not want to get changed or has problems focusing on getting changed, we recommend showing up early to facilitate changing before swimmers from the previous swimming lesson get out of the pool, or to arrive at Little Swimmers with your child already wearing swimsuits.
We find that most children are fine once they actually get in the water. A no-nonsense approach works best and also eliminates any confusion as to when the swimming lesson is starting. If necessary, we don’t mind parents physically handing over the little swimmer to establish authority for the instructor.
Why did my child get a time-out during the lesson?
We do use time-outs during swimming lessons if needed. Our instructors try to focus your child’s attention through diversion, but will give three warnings for any behavior non-condusive to swimming or instruction thereof.
Why do your swimming lesson prices seem high?
Actually, our swimming lessons are very affordable. Compared to other swim schools who sell a longer commitment to shorter classes with more swimmers, we are very competitive. Not many other places can your children get such quality instruction with such few swimmers in both the class and in the pool!
