Ms. Cathy firmly believes that teaching your child to swim is just as important as covering an electrical outlet. One of the leading causes of accidental death in children ages 2-10 is drowning. You can be the most caring parents and still have your child fall in some type of body of water and drown. Sadly, no parent is exempt from this sort of terrible accident. This is why Ms. Cathy teaches them to swim to the side and climb out.
Why play roulette and attend swim lessons that usually take a year or two of lessons before your child can even save themselves if they accidentally fall in? Your child can learn to swim in as few as 5 lessons and is then able to save themselves by swimming to the side of the pool and getting out unassisted if they happen to fall in the pool.
The Approach: Ms. Cathy's swim lesson approach is a face in prone position, 3 second gliding submersion with adding mobility. This gives children the ability to get to the side of the pool and climb out. Parents should note that all children 11 months and older will be extremely anxious until they bond with the instructor and get comfortable with the prone-glide position.This usually takes 3-4 lessons and by then they are swimming to the side and enjoying themselves. The initial discomfort is well worth it as this is one of the fastest, most effective swim programs for infants and children. Most children will learn to swim in as few as 5 lessons. Some children may need more than one session due to motor skill development. Some of these skills can be achieved at home before your swim session begins. Call Ms. Cathy at 512.263.7813 for skill training information.
All private swim classes are in a 1-week segment with 5 lessons at Ms. Cathy's privately owned pool (Monday through Friday). All parents must stay with their child and will be given daily exercises to help enhance their child’s progress. The price for the 1-week swim lessons is $400 per child. THIS IS A PRIVATE POOL SWIM CLASS. THESE LESSONS ARE NOT PUBLIC SWIMMING LESSONS. To view pictures of private swim classes with Ms. Cathy click here.
