What are Maintenance Lessons?

It is always recommended that you continue to keep your child in swim lessons. The next set of lessons are Maintenance Lessons.

Maintenance Lessons are typically once or twice a week, depending on what works for you and what your PediaH2O Instructor recommends. These Maintenance Lessons will still be with your same PediaH2O Instructor and are still 10-minute private one-on-one lessons.

In these lessons, your child will continue to maintain their swim-float-swim skills as they grow. When a young child grows, their center of gravity can also change. Your PediaH2O Instructor knows your child and will be able to make corrections as they continue to grow. They will also be taught fun stroke foundations like ‘big arms’ or ‘rocket arms’ that will help them in future stroke lessons.

If your child is around the water a lot, we recommend more maintenance lessons. For example, a family that goes to the pool 5 days/week during the summer should get twice a week maintenance lessons during that period. This is due to the reality that the child learns what is reinforced, and a parent or other supervisor will likely pick the child up before they have a chance to practice their self-rescue swim skills.

Keeping your child in swim lessons is one of the best things you can do to help them with their development! You are also helping them to continue onward in their swim journey.
