Types of Lessons
Private swim lessons are 1:1. Each student will have their own instructor. The instructor provides attention and focus on your child. The instructor will be able to address specific needs of the child.
Group lessons are a 3/4 : 1 ratio. Students are grouped together by a variety of factors including age, swim level, and experience. Group students can learn by watching others, creating strong relationships between peers, conquering problems collectively, and establishing group goals. At Wildlife, we can develop accommodations to meet the needs of each student in the group.
Double swim lessons are 2:1. A pair of swimmers are taught by one instructor. This is a popular choice for 2 siblings. Double lessons allow for unique lessons, children do not have to be of the exact same swim level to be grouped together, but have to be within a good range (Vicky will assess). 2:1 lesson allows for the students to each build on their own skills, with the help of another peer building skills during the same time frame.
Sibling groups are a typical group lesson structure, but alleviate the cost of group lessons. To be eligible for a sibling group, you must have three or more kids. Vicky will assess wether to put the siblings in the same group or separate them.
Mommy / Daddy
Mommy/Daddy and Me lessons are a 10:1 ratio. Each swimmer must be accompanied by a parent in the water. There will be one instructor per 10 child/parent pair. The goals of these lessons are to introduce a youngster to the water. These lessons are excellent for parent/child bonding or a youngster with a fear.
Age Range: 6 months-2 years
This is a parent/me class for older ones who like to stay by a parent in lesson. Each swimmer must be accompanied by a parent in the water. There will be one instructor per 10 child/parent pair. The goals of these lessons are to help the child in water while learning basic water skills.
Age Range: 18months- 4 years
This is for individuals who already know how to swim looking to improve. There are 6 kids and 1 instructor. We will work on stroke techniques and skills that a competitive swimmer will do. This is great for a child preparing to join the swim team.
