Some Advantages Of Private Swimming Lessons

By Sofia Coraines

Is it time for your children to learn how to swim? Learning how to swim is an essential task for anyone. Not only can swimming be used for recreational purposes, it can save lives. For this reason, an investment into private swimming lessons is a good idea for just about anyone. However, private swimming lessons for kids is one of the best ways to introduce your children to the fun they can have while either at the pool or the beach. When you are able to make your children comfortable in the water, it will not only allow them to build great memories, but it will keep them as safe as possible while doing so. Below, we will be going over some of the main advantages that you will get from private swimming lessons.

Advantages Of Private Swimming Lessons:

1. Teach Children How To Be Comfortable In Water

One of the biggest advantages that you will be able to get from investing in private lessons is the ability to teach your children how to be as comfortable as possible in the water prior to diving into the learning process. This is perhaps the most important part of the entire learning experience because fear is typically the number one roadblock to learning how to swim successfully. Before someone is able to learn how to swim, they must be comfortable with being in and submerged in water. A professional teacher will be able to do just that when it is a private lesson because they will have the time and the one on one ability to properly introduce them to water without having to rush the process. This will allow them to learn how to feel confident while they are in water and how to float without assistance.

2. Center Of Attention

When you invest in group classes, the biggest problem is not getting enough attention to your own children. While your children might be fast learners, they might not be as advanced as others in the class. Therefore, if your children are some of the few that might require more instruction, you will want to be sure that they get the attention they need to succeed. The only way that you will be able to ensure that your children are able to get this kind of required attention is by investing in private lessons. That way, you know that they will be able to get one on one instruction and training. Thus, all of the focus will be on your children which is going to position them in the best possible way to succeed.

3. More Affordable

While you might assume that group classes are more affordable because the cost per lesson can be split up, this is not true. In fact, it is actually more likely to be cheaper in the long run to invest in private lessons because your children are going to be able to learn much faster. When you are in group classes, you are going to be hindered or slowed down by the slowest learner. Therefore, you will be paying for classes and instructions that your children may have already mastered. When you invest in private lessons, you are only going to pay for what your children are learning and what they need to learn. Therefore, they may be able to get through the entire course and instruction much quicker than with group classes. Thus, saving you a good amount of money in the process.

4. Flexibility

Another reason you are going to want to invest in private lessons rather than put your money into group lessons for your children will be due to flexibility. The fact is, when you invest in private lessons, you are going to not only be able to schedule the right time to host the lessons, but you will even be able to pick the ideal locations to hold it as well. This is going to provide you with the kind of flexibility that you might need to better accommodate your busy schedule. This is likely going to be a very big benefit for the parents of the students in question. Having to deal with the logistics of getting to and from and working around group classes can be daunting. Therefore, it is likely going to be a much better idea to simply go for this kind of private lesson in order to get the flexibility you might need.

Overall, there are a lot of different advantages that you are going to be able to enjoy when you invest in private lessons over having your children take group lessons. Not only will they get better and more focused instruction, but it might even save you money in the process. Also, it is bound to save you time and energy with the increased flexibility you will have scheduling everything.

What Other People Said...

"My daughter has been at Northstar since she was 2 years old and started in the Toddler Program. She is now in the final year of the Casa Program and my son has taken her place in the Toddler Room. I can’t say enough about how Northstar has gone above and beyond to ensure their success. The school takes an individual approach to each student, recognizing that each child learns in their own way and at their own pace. My daughter has excelled in this non competitive environment and is outperforming her circle of peers who are older than her in the public system. She has a love for learning and truly enjoys working with the Montessori materials. The Casa Program does a great job of ensuring that the students really understand what they are learning. The Toddler and Pre Casa Programs are both nurturing and educational and truly set the stage for learning at the higher levels. My son at just a year and a half has shown great independence as well as the ability to follow direction and play well in a group setting. The school has done a great job of balancing both the social and academic needs of the child which in my opinion is key to their success." - Shelley
