What should I expect for my child during swimming lessons?
Your child will be taught by a caring and knowledgeable swimming expert.
Your child may cry during swimming classes until he is comfortable with the teacher and the water.
Keep in mind that it takes 1-2 years for a child to learn how to walk. Learning to swim is a process and needs to be practiced regularly to be effective.
Children’s development is constantly changing and so are their learning capabilities.
The swimming teacher will continue to gain your child’s trust during each class.
There may be separation anxiety. If so, the second swim lesson may produce more apprehension than the first. Normally, by the third lesson, the child recognizes the teacher and is becoming comfortable.
Students who are not potty trained must wear a swimming diaper covered with a reusable swim diaper.
Hair that is past the shoulders must be put in a swim cap. The first cap will be provided by Florida Swim School and additional caps may be purchased as needed.
Bring swimsuit, towel, and a smile. Congratulations on making the important decision to keep your child safer in the water.
Thank you for trusting us as we teach your child the life-saving skill of swimming!
