Tiny TAC  swim instructors are excited to teach your kids about swimming and water safety, regardless of level! Our instructors have been trained to teach to the level of the child, provide constant feedback, and to ensure that each student is introduced to the fundamentals of each skill being taught before being asked to master it and move on to the next skill. The Tiny TAC swim instructors use a progressive technique method of instruction. Mastery of basics skills are necessary before advancing to the next level.

Private Swimming Lessons In CT

Private lessons are a great way to get your kiddo (or you!) swimming quickly. Though children often learn better in group lessons, private lessons can be valuable when:

  • A child needs one-on-one time to become comfortable enough in the water for group lessons
  • Scheduling does not allow for group lessons
  • A child has special needs and will benefit from one-on-one lessons
  • A child or adult is too old for group lessons

If interested in Private Lessons, please contact Rachel at [email protected] to set up a time that meets your needs and the needs of the facility. Private lessons must be paid in full prior to the lesson.
