So, you’ve decided to go for swimming lessons, that’s great! But how do you choose which lessons are right for you? There’s a few things that should be considered when choosing where your family should go for swimming lessons.
Firstly you need to check the age range they work with. If you’re only looking for lessons for your baby that’s great, but if you want somewhere your children will attend for a while as they grow, then check what lessons they offer as children get older.
Will you need to be in the pool with them or is it one on one. Most baby classes will need you to be in the water too, so this is something to think about. As children get older often it will just be them in the pool with the instructors, but think about the class sizes and how many instructors will be in a class with them. Make sure that you are comfortable with the ratios.
Consider timings when choosing lessons. If your family is not up with the lark then lessons first thing on a Saturday morning are unlikely to be for you. In the same way that after school lessons won’t be a winner if you know your child gets super tired and ready for bed by 4.30pm. Going to lessons should be exciting and enjoyable and not a chore, so make sure you choose the right time to fit in with your family.
Another thing to think about is location. You can get there in half an hour with no traffic, but if your class starts just after school finishes and the traffic will be heavy or you need to get two busses to get there then it might not be the right place for you.
