Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach adults and children with disabilities and/or special needs?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Yes! Our instructors are highly trained to teach a variety of disabilities and special needs, and cater the lessons to fit the needs of each individual.

What should I expect in 5 days?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Please understand that every child is different. Our main goal is that at the end of their lessons, the child can defend themselves in the water. For example, if the child falls into the water they can either swim to safety or float on their backs. A second week for some children may be necessary to master the skills needed for water safety. We encourage parents to continue practicing the skills learned at Little Swimmers so the child can continue to improve. Remember, practice makes perfect.

What happens if my child begins to cry?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Remember, your child has just been introduced to a new environment, our instructors are well trained for these type of situations and will comfort your child to make their swimming experience a fun, safe and healthy one. For best results we ask that parents remain in the seating area and out of sight so the class can go uninterrupted and allow the instructor to build a rapport with the child.

What should I bring for the lesson?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Please bring a bathing suit, sunblock and towel. If your child wears a diaper and is not potty trained it is mandatory that they wear a swim diaper while in the pool.

Is it okay to feed my child before the lesson; If yes, how soon before?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Yes, it’s okay. However, if you do please try to feed your child 1 ½ to 2 hours prior to the lesson. If possible, avoid feeding your child dairy products such as milk and yogurt. We suggest that you have snacks or lunch ready for your child after his/her lesson.

What happens if I miss a class?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

The only classes that will be made up are those that are canceled by Little Swimmers due to bad weather and if your child is sick. However, you must provide documentation from your doctor in order to reschedule any missed class(es) due to illness. Any missed make-up class will not be rescheduled and there will be no refunds.

What happens if I’m late for my lesson?2020-04-13T17:16:37-04:00

Please call our office to let us know you are running late. Unfortunately, there are no make-ups for the time lost. Your lesson will begin immediately upon your arrival. Please keep in mind that the instructor will have another lesson immediately after your lesson.

What happens if my child is sick?2020-04-13T17:16:57-04:00

Call our office in advance to let us know that your child will not be able to attend their lesson. Missed lessons due to illness will be rescheduled if proper documentation from your doctor is given. Your instructor will determine the best time and day in which to give a make-up lesson.

What happens if it is raining?2020-04-13T17:16:57-04:00

Please call 30-45 minutes in advance to the location of your lessons. Please keep in mind that the phone may be very busy at these times. We encourage that you still try to make it to your lesson since at times some of the rainstorms may last only 15-20 minutes. There are many occasions that it is raining at your home but not raining at the location.

Can I request a specific instructor?2020-04-13T17:16:57-04:00

Yes! Just ask use over the phone who you would like to teach you or your child and we will give you information on their availability.
