If you’ve ever watched group swim lessons, you’ve probably noticed a few things: students receive very little actual instruction, spending much of their time waiting at the side of the pool while the instructor works with one child at a time. Most group lessons are only offered once or twice a week, often so that the facility can charge recurring membership fees over time rather than condensing the lessons into the relatively short time actually needed to help a child progress.
It’s no wonder that many families are turning to private swim classes for their children. Our one-on-one instruction gives your child the most personalized lessons available, allowing you to see up close what he’s learning and what areas you can work on between classes. And, best of all, private swimming lessons are the most effective way to help your child develop a love of the water that will last a lifetime.

Sunsational Swim Skills Chart
Sunsational Swim Award Certificate
After they complete their lesson package they can receive their certificate with the skill level they achieved!
As lessons are private or semi-private we do not have "levels" but instead a skill progression chart that allows children to develop swim and water safety skills at their own pace in a progressive manner. Please note that instructors may not follow the exact progression outlined in our chart as they will customize their teaching method and skill progression for your child's individual needs and abilities.
Every child has different abilities and progresses through swim skills at a different pace but on average most children will achieve the following skill sets in 12 Private Swim Lessons.
Our 12 lesson guarantee was created to help ensure that our students will, at minimum, learn the important water safety skills necessary to help them to recover if they were to fall into a pool or body of water. These life saving skills are very important to learn at a young age because drowning is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1-14 and most of these drownings occur in a pool. Our learn to swim guarantee entails that the child will be able to kick or kick & paddle with the child’s face under the water with no flotation devices and swim back to the wall after the instructor drops them into the pool from the edge after 12 Private Swim Lessons.

Our #1 Priority: Water Safety for Your Child
In our program, children learn to swim in a safe and positive environment. Making safety a priority, our instructors teach young swimmers how to swim back to the wall after an accidental fall in the water, how to pull themselves out of the water and how to master breathing, paddling and kicking in order to swim to safety.
A Gentle and Step-by-Step Method
Our progressive step-by-step method makes learning easy and fun, and fear tactics or force are never a part of our curriculum. Private lessons ensure that children progress at their own pace, and move on only after they’re ready for a bigger challenge. The ability to personalize lessons gives our instructors the chance to help your child develop skills, as well as conquer fear or self-doubt.
Learn to Swim – That’s Our Guarantee
We Guarantee that your child aged 3 year or older will, at minimum, learn to swim back to the wall after a jump into the water in 12 Private Swim Lessons, or the subsequent lessons required to meet our guarantee are free. Our 12 lesson guarantee was initiated to ensure that our students will, at minimum, learn the important water safety skills necessary to help them to recover if they were to fall into a pool or body of water. These life saving skills are very important to learn at a young age because drowning is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1-14 and most of these drownings occur in a pool.
