When you opt for private and semi-private swimming lessons for kids, you have the luxury of choosing the time that’s most convenient for you and your child. Many kids swimming lessons are offered at outdoor facilities, but an indoor location allows the best continuity and year-round success. If you’re looking for the fastest, easiest and most affordable way for your child to learn how to swim, it’s time to seriously consider private swim classes for children. All of Safari Island swim instructors are trained and lifeguard certified which means you’ll know your child is in the best hands possible. Plus, you’ll be giving them the unique opportunity to potentially learn faster and better than their peers in group lessons. Private and semi-private lessons give participants a customized one-on-one experience with an instructor to reduce fear of the water, improve particular strokes and refine skills. Semi-private lessons are for two to three students that are of the same ability level and similar in age. Students between the ages of 3 – 6 years old that want to take private lessons together must have no more than a one year age gap between them.

Private and semi-private lessons will be available in lesson package options of 4 or 8 lessons and will be offered in time increments of 30 or 45 minutes. Children between the ages of 3 – 5 years old are limited to the 30 minute option for lessons. To arrange lessons stop into Safari Island and select the option that best suits your needs! The Aquatics Director, Liz Tromborg is available to answer any questions and can help determine what option is the best for you! Please e-mail Liz at etromborg@waconia.org
