Children 16 months to 4 years learn the entire swim*float*swim sequence, which takes 24 to 32 lessons, or 6 to 8 weeks, with no vacations, illness and a child with no developmental delay. Lessons are one-on-one 10 minutes a day, four days a week. These are performance-based lessons, not time based. When a child is fatigued, the lesson is over for the day. Children learn at different rates and these are approximations for learning four skills: a short swim, roll back to float independently, the float and the flip over to swim. Your child must be walking at least three feet independently for eight weeks to learn this series.
Parents/caregivers observe from the pool deck and will be informed when it is time to get in the pool to learn how to reinforce skills for their new swimmers.
