Where are you located?
I come directly to your home or housing community pool.
What areas do you service? Currently, South Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples Area. We are expanding and would appreciate feedback on where to go next.
Why should I put my child in private lessons? It has been proven over and over that
lower student to teacher ratio is the best situation for learning. Therefore, one student to one instructor is the optimal for learning. A private 30 minute lesson is 30 minutes with an instructor. A group lesson for a half hour with four students is 7 minutes per student with the instructor. Private lessons are designed to get your child safe in the water. At Aquatic Locomotion Swim we specialize in quick and effective learning
through one-on-one lessons that are individually tailored to the students learning style and developmental level.
My child tells me he doesn't want to take swim lessons, should I listen to him, or put him in lessons anyway?
Put your child in lessons anyway. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children
under the age of five! Children who have had swimming lessons have a respect for water, they know they have limitations, they understand the work involved with swimming, and they know there are rules that go with swimming.
What is your cancellation policy? Cancellations must be made more than 24 hours from your scheduled lesson time to avoid being charged for the lesson. We allow 2 lesson reschedules per lesson package and 4 per season. Cancellations due to poor weather conditions (cold & rainy or lightning) can be made up to 3 hours prior to your lesson and do not apply to the lesson reschedule maximum.
Are parents required to be in the water during lessons? Children 2 years and over get the most out of lessons without the parent in the water and often with the parent out of direct sight (preschoolers often act up when the parent is in view).
When will my child be a "safe" swimmer? Every child is unique and develops at their own pace.
Babies and toddlers who have had positive water experiences early tend to develop faster because they do not develop a fear for the water. Keeping this in mind, the younger they get started, the sooner they will become safe and happy swimmers. Learning to swim is not a skill that you can learn in just a few
lessons, but requires time to develop and practice. We recommend beginners take 3 lessons per week for maximum skill retention and fast progression.
Do you have insurance? Yes, we are fully insured.
Do you recommend using flotation devices? If you must use a flotation device for your child, then we recommend using something that will allow them to maintain a horizontal body position in the water. It's best to wait until after the first swim lesson before purchasing any equipment. We will evaluate what's best for you and child. Please DO NOT put arm floats on your child as they cause them to remain in a
vertical position in the water.
