Swim lessons: Private or Public... Which would be better?

My4 yr old dd has been to 2 different sessions of public swim lessons before. We also take her to the beach, spray parks and the Ymca pool all the time. She is just not interested in getting her face or head wet. She wants to be held in the water instead of trying to swim. She wants to be with her friends at the pool but wont learn to swim.

  • I think private ones have a much better result!

  • If she doesn't learn to get her head and face wet, she will never learn how to swim.

  • My oldest went to private because she was scared of the water. My younger two took public lessons.
    You daughter would probably do well in private lessons.

  • I'd say private so it's one on one.
