Each session is for approximately 6 weeks, scheduled 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, for up to 10 minutes each day. The consistency of daily lessons is critical for learning efficiency. It is how infants and young children learn best, and your child will be learning highly specialized skills. Children will not learn these skills as quickly and effectively practicing them only once or twice a week.

​Keep in mind that the 6 weeks is an average amount of time to become independently skilled and varies based on factors such as a attendance, interference, history of floatation device use, individual developmental stages and learning styles. These lessons are customized to your child's needs to ensure their success.

Your two instructors on Long Island offer sessions throughout the year at various locations to reach as many children as possible.

Repetition and consistency are crucial elements of  learning for young children.   Research shows that short,  more  frequent  lessons  result  in  higher  retention.  Second, most children have fairly short  attention  spans  and  will  not  be  able  to  focus  on  the  task  for longer  than  the 10-minute  time span  and we want to take advantage of the best time for  learning.   A  third  reason is  that,  though  the  pool  temperature  is  maintained  at  78-88  degrees,  the  temperature  is  still  lower  than  your  child's  body  temperature. Lessons  are  work  and  therefore  your  child  will  also  be  losing  body  heat.  Instructors  check  students  regularly  for  temperature  fatigue  since  this  is  an  indicator  of physical fatigue.
