what makes us different?

As a PediaSwim trained instructor our instructors have completed a 4 week, 1:1 instructor training that included 100+ hours of intense in-water training at the SouthWest Aquatics facility in Winter Garden, Florida. PediaSwim is a child centered approach to learning life-saving water skills. Our focus is happy swimmers that not only learn how to handle an aquatic emergency but continue to progress in their swim skills with us. 

Our lessons focus on 1:1 lessons with the same instructor until children have mastered their basic skills and are ready to progress to a small group setting. 

We welcome parents at any time to observe our lessons and visit with us before choosing to enroll in our program. 

We pride ourselves on happy, confident swimmers.

Basic Training

IMG_0836.HEIC

Children walking through age 4.

We prefer children be beginning to walk prior to starting lessons. Instructor approval required to begin lessons earlier. 

The goal for swimmers is the ability to problem solve in the water no matter what the situation. 
Swimmers learn age appropriate swimming postures to allow them to swim facedown in the water, rotate onto their back to a floating position that enables them to rest and breathe, then return to a facedown swimming posture.

Swimmers complete their basic skills swimming once they are able to demonstrate a clothes checkout and the ability to find the surface of the water and float comfortably on their back. 

Average basic skills training is 16-24 consecutive lessons. All lessons are 1:1, lessons are 10 minutes in length.

Swimmers complete their basic skills swimming once they are able to demonstrate a clothes checkout and the ability to find the surface of the water and float comfortably on their back, and safely find the wall to exit the pool. 

Average basic skills training for this age is 8-12 consecutive lessons. All lessons 1:1, 15 minutes in length

tiny, small, and fun groups

*if swimmers have completed survival swim training lessons with another swim program they are able to enroll after a swim evaluation 

 

Instructor Approval Needed for Enrollment

 

Our small group lessons are designed to allow children to continue to build their swim-float-swim skills and begin to develop their freestyle stroke. Small groups allow students to maintain their skills and develop further as an independent swimmer. 

Swimmers are grouped by age and ability. Lessons are 20 or 30 minutes in length, based on age. Class ratios vary from 2:1 up to a max. 6:1 ratio based on age of swimmers.

Swimmers attend lessons one time per week. 

Stroke development

Instructor Approval Needed for Enrollment

Once a swimmer has mastered the fundamentals of the swim-float-swim technique they are ready to build their stroke technique. 

Stroke Development lessons will allow a student to learn the basics of the 4 main strokes including; freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly. Students will also learn how to properly swim with a snorkel.

Stroke Development lessons are taught as small group lessons with a 4:1 ratio. Lessons are 30 minutes in length.

Swimmers attend once per week.

Small groups allow swimmers to swim with other swimmers providing social interaction, developing social skills such as taking turns, and add an element of fun for swimmers. 

private lessons available on a limited basis.
