The Convenience and Benefits of Summer Backyard Swim Lessons

When it comes to private swimming lessons, most parents have no idea that options are offered that include backyard learning. Many parents think that swimming lessons must take place in a facility, however, that is not the case. Instructors will offer private lessons in their own home. They may even offer to come to your home if you have a swimming pool, in order to help your child learn how to swim.

Benefits of Backyard Swimming Lessons

There are many benefits associated with backyard swimming lessons. To begin, your child will receive one on one training. This means that your child will learn how to swim at their own pace and have the undivided attention of the instructor. In a group learning environment, many children can fall behind as the instructor must provide attention to each child, instead of one individual. With backyard swimming lessons, your child is able to focus on skills and learning at their own pace, which can lead to better training and overall understanding of each technique.

Backyard swimming lessons are also convenient. When it comes to lessons at a facility, you have to enroll your child for a set time frame and attend classes at a particular time. It can be difficult to meet these requirements and you have to travel to the lesson as well. With backyard swimming lessons, instructors operate on their own time. Because of this, sometimes you have more flexibility to schedule lessons so they meet your scheduling needs.

Overall, your child will be introduced to swimming techniques based on their age and current skill level. Children are able to learn at their own pace and do not feel pressured to move on to the next skill until they master what they are currently working on. In a class setting, children often feel they must move on to the next skill, even if they do not feel fully comfortable with what they have been working on. With individual lessons, the child will be able to work at their own pace and move on when they are ready. This type of learning leads to better mastering swimming skills and self confidence within your child.

If you are considering enrolling your child in swim classes, think about backyard swimming lessons. This may be an option that works better for you as it offers more leniency when it comes to scheduling and one on one learning.

At Zodiac Swim School, backyard swim lessons are available during the summer months via the director’s pool. The benefits of this option include, being able to pay as you go and not being locked into a schedule. Parents are free to schedule lessons around their work times. This convenience is a major reason why parents opt to enroll their kids into the backyard swimming program.

Day Camps for Your Budding Artist

When it comes to summer programs for kids, there are many to choose from. As the parent, it is important to choose a camp that includes activities that your child enjoys. If your child likes to play sports, then of course a camp that specializes in sports activities would be ideal. If your child is more interested in arts and crafts, than creativity programs would be more ideal. Let’s take the budding artist example and learn what your child can enjoy when attending summer camp programs.

Creativity

A camp that focuses on creativity will feature a number of artistic activities to help the children come out of their shell and express themselves. The standard option offered on the subject of creativity is arts and crafts, but this subject can span throughout several activities. Your child will be able to paint, draw and colour, exploring their imagination along the way.

Children can also have access to unique creativity activities such as sculpting, theater, music, and dance. Your child may come home and have found a brand new activity that they love and want to continue to enjoy year after year.

Imagination

It is important, especially for young children, to explore their imagination. Children need to be able to discuss what they are thinking and feeling, learning more about bringing their imagination to life. With creativity classes during summer camp, your child is invited to be silly and spread their imagination as far as it will go.

By giving such freedom, your child will begin to have a renewed sense of self confidence. A child that can use their imagination and put their ideas to practice, is able to make friends easily and feel good about themselves.

It is important that children who love being artistic have an outlet to express themselves. For the most part, sports take priority when it comes to activities offered at school or in after school programs. With special art related summer camps, your child has a place that fits their creativity needs as well as provides an outlet for them to be creative and explore.

When your child shows an interest in arts and crafts, let them explore. Look for summer camp programs that feature the art subjects they are interested in but also encourage your child to try new things. When they are able to try new and exciting activities in the art realm, they will be more encouraged to try new things and express their creativity and imagination.

At Zodiac Day Camp, we want to provide an outlet for creativity within your child. We offer several programs for children of all ages to be able to enjoy the arts. From arts and crafts to dance and drama, we offer specialized programs that meet the needs of little creative beings. Let us help your child explore their creativity and let their imaginations soar.
