Program Overview

Kids Learn to Swim Roadmap

Click to Watch Presentation

Our Kids Learn-to-Swim program targets children between the ages of 4 and 12. Both group and private options are available to learn the lesson content.  Children will be in the water without an adult in these classes.

The learn-to-swim class progression is the same for children ages 4 to 12.  Children begin in the Beginner 1 class where they acquire basic water acclimation skills and master two learn-to-swim strokes.  They then continue to the Beginner 2 class where they learn the foundations of the competitive strokes.  Classes for children ages 4 and 5 will be 30 minutes long; classes for children ages 6-12 will be 45 minutes long.  The difference in duration is based on the physical demands of the class and the developmental levels of the kids.

Our Beginner 3 class teaches children deep water comfort and skills.  Children ages 4 and up can take the class so long as they have completed the Beginner 2 class.  Classes are 45 minutes long and will take place at a conventional pool with a deep end.

The Intermediate 1 and 2 classes fully build the four competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly).  Each class adds progressively more advanced skills until the kids have the stroke technique necessary to look into a swim team.

Testimonials

Best instructors. I’m confident my kids aren’t just playing in the pool–they’re learning to swim and learning proper form. — C.A.

My daughter loves her swimming lessons at CBD. The instructors are very pleasant and try to make it fun and easy for her.  I would recommend this company to parents who want their kids to learn swimming and enjoy it while they do it. — G.F.

Everyone is very friendly and helpful.  I love the curriculum and can see that my daughter is really learning and progressing. — E.W.

The teachers are amazing. They work very hard to get to know my children and gently and playfully they challenge them to the next level. My children always want to go to the lessons because its fun and they learn at the same time. Great didactics. — I.A.

I love the weekend classes especially Sundays. It caters to parents with busy lives. The make up classes are great so that I don’t throw my money away for conditions beyond my control.  Your program is truly catered to children and parents needs. I travel across town and while it is pricey I know that my child will get the one-on-one attention she needs and will not move until she has mastered the necessary skills.  Most places the instructor walks away and spend more time with the kids who are less challenging to teach. This year she actually complained when the class was over and she wanted to stay in the water. I love all of the instructors as they push her in different areas. Thank you Chicago Blue Dolphins! — M.B.

 

Private and Semi-Private Lesson Tuition

As a parent, you’ll have the option of doing private lessons to learn our class content. If you would like to do a semi-private lesson, you’ll need to provide the other members of the lessons. We offer private lessons for 25 minutes of duration in one, two, and three person options; purchases of five lessons at a time will receive a 10% discount.

If you are unsure where your child fits in to our group class progression or whether private or group classes best meet her needs, contact our office to schedule a 25-minute Skills Assessment lesson. Our instructor will run your kiddo through a series of exercises to determine her current skill level and then will give you an overview of the skills progression that best matches her skills and goals.

If you opt to move ahead with one of our private lesson tuition plans, you will be charged for a $20.00 annual membership to cover insurance and safety costs.  If you continue on with us beyond one year (and we hope you do), you will be charged the annual membership fee on each anniversary you have with us.

Group Class Tuition and Class Sizes

You will pay tuition for your classes either one month at a time (“the Single Month Plan”) or at a discounted rate with a three month commitment (“the Three Month Plan”).  If you select the Three Month Plan, you will still be charged tuition on a monthly basis; if you disenroll from the class before the completion of the three month term, we will charge you the difference between the three month and one month rates for each class you took during the three months.  For more details about disenrolling from a class, see “Disenrollment from Automatic Tuition Renewal” on our Policies and Procedures page.

In addition to the tuition from the plan you select, you will be charged for a $20.00 annual membership to cover insurance and safety costs.  If you continue on with us beyond one year (and we hope you do), you will be charged the annual membership fee on each anniversary you have with us. 

We offer our Kids Learn-to-Swim classes in a small group setting. We keep the size of our group classes small to give each child more attention and practice. Our student-to-teacher ratio in our Kids Learn-to-Swim classes is 3:1.

The class tuition amounts are described in the table below. We offer multi-day discounts if you sign up for more than one class per week. Coming more frequently will help your child progress more quickly.
