My daughter has been in lessons 2 times a week for 10 months and at only 1 1/2 years old has already become a swimmer. It's pretty amazing. And I credit these swim lessons. Her instructor Brittnei is lovely and really has that magic that connects with babies and children. She knows what she is doing. She is a true teacher. But she does not just teach my daughter.... it is me who needs to learn how to best support her natural ability to swim, even on the cranky days when it doesn't seem quite so. She is patient as well as punctual. The lesson is only 20 minutes and she wastes no time. The method is very simple and consistent. This school teaches them to get down in the water right away and the younger they are to practice that, the easier it is for them to re-master being underwater. My son, who is now 5 learned to swim at another school using floaties and flippers and it took him many years to get it, I thought it was just him but after switching schools, I'm not so sure.. He has also taken a lesson with Brittnei , which impressed me. She got him to listen, relax and swim more confidently than I ever had seen. The staff and other instructors are all very nice and polite. Sometimes a cry echoes through the pool but everybody remains calm, understanding and the energy stays positive. The pool is super warm and clean.
