competative-swimmerWhat is the class size?

All lessons are private unless you provide another swimmer.

What age is a good age to begin lessons?

In Susan’s vast experience, children aged 3+ possess the physical and emotional development to have a successful experience with her program.

What should I, or my child, bring to the lessons?

A bathing suit and a towel, no other things are necessary (goggles, fins, etc.)

Should a parent attend the lesson?

Yes! For the child, it is important to have the security of a familiar adult/caregiver in an unfamiliar situation. For the parent, it is exciting to watch your child learn to swim, and observation will help you in working with your child outside of lessons.

Does the parent get into the water?
