Also, here are a few key things to consider when choosing swim lessons or private instructor:

  • What time of day your child would be most receptive to learning and participating? (morning? after nap? afternoon?)
  • What type of environment would be most comforting for your child? (group? one-on-one with instructor? mommy or daddy and me class?)
  • Other things to think about: what to bring! Check the program’s requirements for gear (i.e. flotation devices, goggles, etc.), swim diapers, potty-trained, etc.
  • Is there a skill-level requirement to sign up? (For example, some classes require a starting point to join, like being able to blow bubbles under water.)
  • Don’t forget a change of clothes, snacks, water bottle, towel… you know the whole house!
