FAQs

How much are classes and how are they structured?

Billing is processed on the 1st of each month and is based on enrollment, NOT attendance. New students will be charged a one time $50 enrollment fee

All members will be on a monthly billing system:

Group lessons (2.5 years old and up) have a 3-4:1 student to teacher ratio. Parent-Tot classes (6 months to 2.5 years old) are considered group lessons as well, and because each child has a parent accompanying them, the class can have up to 7 child/parent couples. For group lessons, we will be charging a flat-rate of $145 per month, per student. $145/month would be for one student who attends lessons once per week.

Semi-Private lessons have a 2:1 student to teacher ratio. They require TWO children who are close in age to be enrolled together, whether they be family members or friends. *You must be at least 2.5 years old to be in a semi-private/private lesson. For semi-private lessons, it will be a flat rate of $185 per month, per student. $185/month would be for one student who attends lessons once per week.

Private lessons have a 1:1 student to teacher ratio.*You must be at least 2.5 years old to be in a semi-private/private lesson. For private lessons, it will be a flat rate of $225 per month. $225/month would be for one student who attends lessons once per week.

For each additional group lesson/student each month, examples are provided below:

  • 1 student coming to 1 group lesson per week = $145/month
  • 1 student coming to 2 group lessons per week = $290/month
  • 2 students coming to 1 group lesson per week = $290/month

*For each additional lesson/student per month, another $145, $185, or $225 will be added to the family account.

*Additional classes per week may be added to your membership upon request through email (loveswimmingnola@gmail.com)

Drop In Lessons

Single drop in classes are $35 each. To schedule a drop-in class you will have to email us at loveswimmingnola@gmail.com at the beginning of the week. We will let you know what we have available and based on the schedule you provide, we will enroll you accordingly. You will be immediately withdrawn from the class following the drop-in lesson.

What should I bring to swim class?

All students who are under the age of 3 and/or not potty-trained must wear a swim diaper and a swim diaper cover over it. Our definition of potty-trained is: Being conscious of their need to go to the restroom. Also, being comfortable vocalizing their need to go to the restroom (to an adult other than their parents) without being prompted. The swim diaper cover must have elastic bands around the thighs and abdomen. We sell reusable swim diaper covers for $15 at the front desk, as well as swim diapers for $1. Goggles are also provided at the lesson, but you are welcome to purchase your own pair in the lobby. Be sure to write your name/initials on them in permanent marker.

Please remember to bring your towels! The Parent-Tot (Mommy & Me) class requires 1 parent/guardian to be in the pool with their 1 child, so please do bring a swimsuit for mom, dad, or nanny, etc. as well.

What if my child cries or is afraid?

All Love Swimming staff are fully trained to comfort your child using a nurturing approach to ease apprehension and fear. Our philosophy is to introduce students of all ages to the joys of swimming with positive, loving encouragement. Through this process we use a series of progressions to ease your child into learning to swim safely and with confidence. Our ultimate goal is to make your child a skilled and safe swimmer while making lessons fun and rewarding.

Students have fears for different reasons; start talking to your child at home, before you start lessons, to find out what they might be fearful of. Please share any information you discover with your child’s instructor on the first day of class.

Sometimes kids have a separation anxiety that can suddenly overwhelm them once at lessons. If you believe this might be the case for your child, start preparing them as soon as you sign up. Explain that while you will not be getting in the water with them, a really nice teacher will–and that this is something special just for them.

Do you offer Make up classes?

Every student has one make-up included in their membership each quarter of the year.

Our quarters run as: 

  • January-March
  • April-June
  • July-September
  • October-December

Make-up classes must be scheduled by email: loveswimmingnola@gmail.com

How do I find times and register?

To receive times you must fill out a pre-registration form, which can be found under the enrollment tab on the main menu. The form will prompt you to provide your contact information, your child’s swimming abilities, and what your availability will allow. Once we receive your form, we will reply by email within 48 hours with our general information, as well as times that should work for your schedule.

To confirm the times you prefer, reply back to the email. In the event that you do not receive a response, email us at loveswimmingnola@gmail.com or give us a call at 504-891-4662. You can start the registration process by clicking here!

Are there any forms to sign?

Yes. Our forms will be online. You will have access to them following your enrollment.

How long is a class?

All of our classes are 30 minutes long. We have found this to be the perfect length of time for your child to review what they learned in their last class, to start working on new skills, and to not be overwhelmed.

How do I contact my child’s teacher?

If you would like to speak to your child’s instructor, please leave us a voicemail or email us at loveswimmingnola@gmail.com.

If you have a concern about your child’s class, please inform us as soon as possible. As we are always striving to offer the best swim lessons on Earth, we appreciate all feedback and would like to know how we can make the experience better for your family.

How long will it take for my child to swim?

Every student is unique. There are many factors which can affect your or your swimmer’s learning process. Some major factors to take into consideration are potential fears, separation anxieties, and the age at which your swimmer is beginning to learn. We at Love Swimming promise to teach each student with our best effort, and to bring them to a point of loving swimming while being safe in the water. In order to fulfill this promise, we take steps to ensure their progress and begin by getting each student comfortable in the water. We start with getting the eyes and ears wet. Next, we progress to breathing techniques, floating, and then begin to work on kicks and strokes. Our first goal is water comfort. Once this is achieved, everything is possible. Without it, all advancement will be temporary.

How do you determine what class a child will go into?

During your initial conversation with a Booking Manager, you will be asked a series of questions about your child’s abilities in the water. The answers to these questions and your child’s age will determine their level. On the first day of class, each student will be evaluated to determine if they are in the proper class or whether they would be better suited for a different class.  As the classes progress and swimmers begin to reach certain benchmarks, swimmers may be promoted to a new class where they will be challenged with new skills!

When does registration open?

We are a year-round swimming facility, so whenever you are ready to start swimming, we are ready to register!

When and how should I pay for lessons?

Lessons are paid for on a monthly basis.  On the 1st of every month, clients are billed for a full month of lessons depending on the class they take (group, semi-private, or private).  You may pay at the front desk by cash, credit or card, over the phone with a credit card (we accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover), or online once you have access to your portal account.
