A typical Little Otter student takes 14-16 weeks to progress through one swim level. We always recommend a minimum commitment of two months to start to see a progression through the levels. Results can vary for each student, but this lets our parents know what they might experience at Little Otter. We do ask for a 30 day notice if you plan to withdraw your student from Little Otter.

Reserved Space

No spaces are guaranteed until you register online and receive an email confirming that you have enrolled in a class, or you enroll at the swim school in-person. We do not have ‘sessions’, so classes are always going and you may start your child’s classes at any time that we have an opening that fits your schedule.
