Palmetto Swim School is a branch of Palmetto Aquatics, offering private swim lessons at an outdoor pool in Forest Acres/downtown Columbia for children beginning at 18 months. When you sign up for a session it is defined as Monday - Thursday, four day, 25 minute lesson each of the four days.
The cost of each private lesson session is $185. We will only accept payment at time of registration through credit card or debit card. Payments will be processed immediately holding your individual spot for private lessons.
There are weeks where two private lessons will be held at the same time. These are the perfect times to sign up siblings so you can have both lessons at the same time. The cost per student remains the same because these are individual private lessons. Each child having their own instructor.
The outdoor pool is heated to about 85 degrees so no one will be cold. We have an outdoor heated/cooled bathroom and changing room. We have a covered area where Moms, Dads or caretakers can sit and watch the lesson.
If you sign up for a session and need to change or cancel the lesson there will be a
$50 change or cancellation fee.
Please make sure your swimmer can make his/her appointment time and week before you sign up.
Please check dance recitals, preschool graduation, and vacations before you sign up to make sure there are no conflicts.
What to bring? Your child only needs a towel, bathing suit and swim diaper if needed.
Please be at your lesson 5 minutes before your start time.
RAIN POLICY: Unless we call you - your lesson is on! Just because there may be inclement weather at your home it may be blue skies at our pool. Please always plan on coming to your lesson unless we call you.
Please park along our fence and enter the gate near the basketball goal.
Please do not park in front of our garage door or on our neighbor's grass or yard.
The bulk of our lessons will be in May, June, and July. We will not be offering lessons in August.
