Frequently asked questions

If you are new to Peace Of Mind Swimming, welcome! Here’s everything you need to know about private swim lessons:

We want each child or adult to learn based on their own needs. Safety is our focus and in order to get our students to be water safe, they need to have their own personalized instruction. 

It is our mission to teach with urgency and challenge each of our students. As long as children show respect for the water, we will continue to push our students to work toward harder goals.  However, some children have a deep fear or anxiety of the water and since we don't believe in force, a child may take longer than normal. In short, it is our mission to get your child swimming quickly but we can't guarantee a specific time.

We suggest scheduling lessons 2 to 3 times a week to establish a strong foundation. Having lessons 1x a week means slower progress so we do suggest to keep to more frequent lessons during the week, if it possible. 
For students and adults who are working on stroke development, 1 to 2x a week is ideal. 

It depends on your goals and time. Ideally, we would like to schedule a minimum of 8 lessons. 

We are not specifically a survival swim school. We have researched many of the learn to swim and survival companies and incorporated many of the teachings into our safety minded lessons. One of the things that set us apart is we don't force children under the water. We will teach children to roll on their backs when they need a break or rest but we also teach important concepts like bouncing off the bottom to find the steps, asking to enter the water and learning to recognize when their body is tired. 

Get your child in the water as much as possible. More exposure to the water, the better! 
We want parents to listen and be actively involved in our lessons and reinforce what is taught by the instructor- especially when it comes to safety. 
Children who have NO fear have to understand cues and know when it is okay to enter the water. It is vital that parents reinforce what is being taught in lessons so we can stress water safety. 

We recommend starting lessons at least 16 months and up. With younger children, we might suggest having a parent enter to water with the instructor to help those children who are hesitant about a new experience.
