Dear MHA Lesson Families,
Thank you for your continued support of the MHA Lesson program!
We are excited to tell you about our new lessons format, which will begin Monday, September 17, 2012, to better meet the needs of both you and your child.
Beginning Monday, September 17th, we will be offering two lesson times on Monday and Wednesday evenings, for Levels 1-6. We have enhanced our lesson program in the following positive ways:
Reduced class sizes – children learn faster!
Two lessons sets per evening will allow us to ensure quality instruction for your child, by maintaining developmentally-appropriate class sizes. This allows kids to spend more time swimming and less time standing!
Focused instruction – safety and skills!
We have defined key swimming and safety skills for each level, as we all want our children to be safe in and out of the water! Instructors will build on what your child has learned in their previous levels to be both successful and safe swimmers.
Fun for the kids - flexibility for you!
One of our key program changes is to incorporate our “play time” within the lesson itself. We all learn best when we are having fun, so expect to see your child playing games that support and enhance the skills they are learning. Expect to see you child be successful – by having fun!
Fun during the lesson means more flexibility for you, the parent! Each lesson site will be offering two, 30-minute lesson sets (locations & times listed below). Registration and check-in will begin 15 minutes prior to the beginning of each lesson.
As always, we welcome your questions and comments, and we encourage you to speak with your site’s Head Instructor, or contact the MHA Lesson Coordinator (see below).
Thank you in advance for your support as we begin this Fall swim season with kids learning FASTer, having FUN, and being FOCUSED on success and safety in and out of the water!
See you at the pool!
