I became a swimming instructor and lifeguard in 1975 and have been teaching since then. I now have several instructors that I have personally trained and are working with me.
We have worked with all ages. The youngest has been two weeks the oldest has been 76. I personally have worked with a range of disabilities from attention deficit disorder, autism, hydrocephaly, CP, to more serious physical disabilities.
A mom recently sent me a video where her four-year-old twins were practicing the elementary backstroke in their pajamas on the floor. It was adorable!
Make sure the teacher is good with children, has child psychology background, and many years of teaching swimming, or specialized training like we provide, beyond water safety instructor.. You may save money with someone with less training but you could hurt your child's progress considerably with the wrong Instructor. Beware of programs that teach survival in one week. Unless your child is used to putting their face in the water these programs can terrify a child for life.
