What qualities should you look for in a Private Swim School

Private swim school is an option that your child has to learn how to swim in a quality setting. Swimming lessons take place in a controlled environment, where your child will be able to pick up skills needed to stay safe in the water as well as excel in the sport of swimming. When searching for a facility to enroll your child in lessons, it is important to look for certain qualities. Below are a few examples of what to look for when searching for a private swim school.

Warm Temperatures

To begin, you want to find a facility that offers warm temperatures. Your child can take swimming lessons during the fall and winter months, as well as spring and summer. You want the water to be temperature controlled to meet the season in which they are taking lessons. The comfort level is important to your child paying attention and learning rather than being uncomfortable in the water.

Reputable Program

It is also important to choose a program that has a solid reputation. Look for reviews online for facilities in your area or ask family and friends if they can recommend a private swim school. Do your research and you will be able to choose a quality facility where your child is guaranteed to learn and have a good experience doing so.


It is also important to consider the scheduling of lessons. Ask the administrative team when lessons are available and make sure they fit around your schedule. You want your child to be able to take part in lessons without it conflicting with school or work. Without scheduling conflicts, your child will be able to attend every lesson and improve upon the skills learned during each session.

Smaller Classes

With private swim schools or private lesson classes are often smaller in size. Your child will not get lost in the shuffle as the instructor will not be bombarded with trying to teach several children how to swim at once. Find out how many kids will be in the class so that you can see to it that your child will receive individual attention for quality learning.

Aquatic Leadership Opportunities

On top of offering swimming lessons, private swim schools can also offer aquatic leadership opportunities. Your child will be able to learn how to swim and excel in the program, then move on to leadership learning as they age. Such skills as first aid along with life-saving techniques are included in class time. There are several stages of aquatic leadership classes and in the end, your child will be certified to act as a lifeguard. This provides an element of safety training for your child as they are in the water but also opportunity for employment or volunteer work as a lifeguard.
