I try to make it fun for the kids. I have to adapt my teaching to each child instead of them fitting in with a program I design. Every child is different. And just as they all walk at a different time and learn all other skills at a different pace, I feel each child should progress at THEIR level. I do not have certain skills....I take them as far as they want to go with their skills. I usually have them three times and then they go on to swim teams or just having fun with the skills they have learned..... My teaching is individual to your child..... I am one of only several people in the mainland USA and Hawaii that teach this way! Blessing, Miss Glendy

I had my son in early lessons for the fact that he is scared of the water and getting him over that. It has taken him 3 times to pass level one. My baby girl she is a year and will start lessons just to get her use to being in the water. We go out to the lake alot and think it is a good thing to get them liking being in the water safety they will learn and they get into the levels.
