Hi! We've been working with Alena for about 10 lessons. Our daughter, who's 3 years old, couldn't do anything and was afraid the water.
Now she's so much more comfortable and she's been doing things like kicking on her back without help! She's been doing a crab walk or she walks along the wall. We couldn't be happier!! Alena is so nice! She's so intuitive into how Willa needs to learn and she's just been fantastic! And we're going to continue working with her until she can swim on her own, which hopefully will be really soon!
We are so happy with her! She is so patient, so caring. And so great at what she does! We've seen so much progress in both of our daughters! We have a 2,5 year old and a 9 month old, and both have made so much progress!
I'm the mother of an 8 month old baby boy. I started swim lessons with Alena when he was 4 months old, just to get an acclimated to being into the water so that he could already get comfortable with being in the water.
She was so great and having creative ways and been so patient and wonderful with him too, without overdoing and without pressing him. We are making sure that it was fun environment for learning!
And we have been happy with how he does progressed and enjoys being in the water. It has been awesome to work with Alena and me will continue to do so in the future. We highly recommend working with her!
Alena is our second trainer, and I want to say that we were quite complicated customer client. My son rejected any pools, any ocean or any options with water, and he had really a lot of stress with the water.
And now only after like six or seven sessions he can dive in into the water, he can do kicking and splashing! So I want to say huge thankee to Alena, because she found that connection with my son. And I'm sure that we need about 10 more sessions, and he will be very comfortable and relaxed in the water!
So I highly recommend Alena because she can find individual attention to any kid in any age! I'm very happy that we've found Alena, and Max loves her very very much!
Parents are often interested in how how many lessons are needed for kids to become water-safe? This is determined individually, but the result is influenced by regular practice and the gentle approach of the instructor. Watch a video where you can compare the progress of kids before and after several classes. You can see that even a strong fear of water can be overcome!

Starting swimming lessons between 3 months and 1 year of age is recommended. At this stage, infants have developed some essential motor skills and can adapt to the water environment more easily.
