Baby SSI

6 - 36 Months

Begin The Swim Journey

Built for 6-month to 36-month-old swimmers with a guardian in the water. This class focuses on increasing safety in and around the water by practicing water safety skills such as back floating, wall skills, and safe exit routines. Through songs and games, this class introduces important foundational skills including kicking, pulling, and submersions while having fun. Repetition and consistency are key to helping each swimmer increase their comfort in the water, and we encourage every caregiver to set their own objective and move at their own pace.

Frequently Asked Questions

Rolling enrollment allows students to progress at their own pace instead of on a set, session-based timeline. Once the swimmer is enrolled, they remain enrolled until they age up, level up, or you notify us that you would like to drop the class. You must let us know 30 days before the 1st of the month if you intend to drop lessons or you will be charged for the full month of lessons.

We will send you a list of our class times that you can be waitlisted for. You can sign up for multiple waitlists at the same time. When a spot opens up we will reach out to you via email and phone call to offer the spot. Families will be given a deadline of 3 business days to respond. If we do not receive a response by the deadline, the swimmer will be removed from the waitlist and we will offer the spot to the next client on the list.

Currently enrolled clients are charged on the 1st of the month for the entirety of the month, based on the number of swim classes occurring in that time frame. Clients initially enrolling in the middle of the month will be charged at the time of enrollment. Tuition will be prorated for that month based on the number of classes they’ll take in that time frame. After that, they’ll be charged on the 1st of the month going forward.

You must let us know 30 days before the 1st of the month if you want to unenroll yourself or your child from classes to avoid being automatically charged. We do not provide refunds or credits if we do not receive proper notice of cancellation.

If you would like to take a break from your lessons and re-enroll in the same class at the same time, you will be required to continue paying monthly tuition during that time. Spaces in classes cannot be saved for future enrollment. 

Yes. We charge a $50 fee upon enrollment. This fee will cover your family for the entire year. A new fee will be charged on January 5th of each year the swimmer is enrolled.

Each family member enrolled after the first will receive 10% off their tuition.

While we greatly appreciate your referrals and the word-of-mouth support, as of June 2024, we no longer offer a referral benefit. The overwhelming number of referrals we receive is a testament to our commitment to quality, and we’re excited to continue welcoming new members to our swim school. Thank you for your continued trust and support!

We require 48-hours notice in advance of the absence to be eligible for a make-up token. Make-ups expire 30 days from the absence date and must be used while enrolled in our program. Make-up classes are based upon available space and are not guaranteed.

Please reach out to our administrative team with as much notice as possible. We ask that swimmers do not attend class if they have symptoms of illness, are contagious, or if they have had a fever within the last 24 hours. We will work with you to figure out when your swimmer can return to classes and what make-up options we can accommodate. Makeup classes are not guaranteed.

  • Swim clothes (The use of wetsuits or neoprene clothing is not allowed as it gives the students a false sense of their buoyancy) ​
  • Towel
  • Goggles if your swimmer likes to use them (Swimmers can use goggles for everything except safety skills.) We encourage goggles for swimmers in Beginner II and above.
  • Swim diaper for all swimmers under the age of 3 AND children over the age of 3 who are not fully potty trained. Wearing a swim diaper helps keep our pool clean and helps minimize pool closures. Children should not wear a regular diaper under their swim diaper, as it will disintegrate in the pool.
  • Unless needed for a medical reason due to illness/injury, we discourage the use of masks that cover the nose, nose clips, and snorkels in swim classes. Learning breath control, especially in emergency situations when these tools are not available, is super important. We are here to help you on that journey!

Each of our teachers completes rigorous training through Swim Schools International (SSI) to receive their swim teaching certifications. They complete online materials, classroom training, in-water training, and an apprenticeship in which they work with already certified teachers and current students.
We focus on establishing trust, water safety, and building strong foundational swim skills and strokes.
SSI’s curriculum is highly structured and promotes quality and consistency in our teaching. All instructors teach the same swim skills for each level and will give appropriately challenging progressions to each individual student. Though we teach the same curriculum, every teacher is encouraged to bring their own personality and creativity to your swimmer’s lesson to make for a fun and engaging class!

We prefer all youth swimmers to be accompanied by an adult guardian. We require all swimmers under 10 years old to be accompanied by an adult guardian through the duration of their swim lesson. It’s common for our swimmers in that age group to need guardian support if they are nervous, need to use the bathroom, or have other unforeseen needs. If something unexpected arises, and you need to leave during the lesson, please inform a swim administrator. We are not able to provide child supervision outside of your swimmer’s designated class time.

Your swimmer will pass their level when they can successfully complete the final goals of their level. Instructors will watch swimmers execute all passing skills during class, and if those skills are done with good technique, proficiency, and confidence, your swimmer will pass! Once the instructor passes your swimmer, you will talk to our administrative team about your next steps and available classes. If you need to wait for a class to open up for your swimmer, they may stay enrolled in their current class to continue working on skills. Our instructors will do their best to start working on the next level’s goals.

Please reach out to the administrative team. We will ask about your swimmer’s previous experience and assess if we need to schedule a free evaluation to gauge which level is best for them within our program. After we select the appropriate level, we will work with you on class scheduling options.
