They need to be at least 6 months old.

How long of session do you suggest for my child?
• 6 months – 2 ½ years old recommended time is 30 minutes.
• At 2 ½ the parent can decide if they think their child has the attention span for a longer lesson.
• 3+ years the lesson is 45 minutes.

What kind of things will my child be learning in their lessons?
Water safety skills, pool rules, survival skills, stroke technique, and safe ways to enter and exit the pool.

Why are the summer program semesters 2 weeks long with 4 classes a week?
This is an accelerated class style that is designed to help children retain the information by repeating it daily rather than once a week.

Are the prices that are listed per lesson?
The price listed for our summer program is the cost for the entire semester per child. The semester includes 8 lessons in a two week period.  A $30 fee will automatically be added to your payment if you live 10 or more miles away from Kidtastics office address.

Are there make up days for classes missed?
No refunds are given for missed classes. The only make up days we have are for weather related cancellations or if a cancellations was made by Kidtastics staff. It is the pool owner’s responsibility to keep the pool clean and in working order if the instructor needs to cancel class due to an unclean pool no make-up class will be allowed.  A $15 gas fee will be charged if an exception is made for a make-up by the Kidtastics office.

What happens if I need to cancel?
Cancellation by an individual will result in a 75% refund until 48 hours prior to the start of the semester or lessons. No refunds are given after the semester starts.

What is the 411 on ear infections?
There are things you can do to help prevent them, such as, using products designed for prevention that can be purchased at a local drug store. This will help the first kind of ear infections caused by moisture being trapped in the outer ear canal. The second kind of ear infection is buildup in the middle ear which requires doctors attention.  Most children can swim after 48 hours of being on ear medication, but check with your provider.

Can children swim with tubes in their ears?
Yes, but we advise you speak with your physician first before doing so. Children with tubes may experience discomfort while floating on their back due to the way the tubes are built.

What is the required attire?
Children should wear swim suits, sunscreen and a swim diaper is required for all children under age 3, even those who are potty trained. Please have your child ready to enter the water ten minutes prior to the start of their lesson.

Do you allow goggles during swim class?
We do not suggest the use of goggle because we do not want the child to become dependent on the use of them. Also in the case of an emergency you want to have them react to the emergency of falling in to the water versus panicking about water being in their eyes.

What is the deciding factor between 30 and 45 minute lessons?
There are many deciding factors such as: amount of children, expectations of lessons, age of children, and prior swimming experience.

If children are on different levels of swimming do you suggest them be in a different swim group?
An instructor can try to customize to accommodate both skill levels but if it doesn’t seem to be productive for both children than we would suggest to split the time between the students. i.e. in a 30 minute lesson one student gets 15 and then the other would get 15.

Do you provide a group for the lessons or do we have to put it together?
In all instances the client is responsible to get the group together unless it is for our Fireside location.

Are classes held on holidays?
Classes do not meet on holidays, please discuss with your instructor about any possible holidays.

What should my child wear to swim class?
Children should wear swim suits, sunscreen and swim diapers are required for all children under age 3, even those who are potty trained. Please have your child ready to enter the water ten minutes prior to the start of their lesson.

Do you take photos or videos of my child during swim class?
Yes, Kidtastics will occasionally take photos/ videos of your child for promotional reason. Your consent is required on our enrollment form.
