My first daughter is 2y9m and has been doing swimming lessons with the same instructor now since she was 8 months, she can now swim completely independently by herself and is learning strokes. I think the swimming lessons have been great for her.
My second bub is 5 months and we plan on sending her to lessons as well. We are already very active in water (beach and pool regularly).
Anyway my question is would it be rude to ask for a discount for both of them? Its going to cost us $30 a week to send them, I know they are running a business and everything, it just seems like so much money to spend- over $1500 a year!
Is this the normal price for two kids? ($15 each)
I considered teaching them myself as I am a very good swimmer but I dont think my toddler would listen to me as much as she does with the instructor.
I know you can't put a price on safety and I am a huge advocate for swim safety, but just wondering if there were some parents out their who managed to teach their kids how to swim without breaking the bank!

Yes we taught our 5 year old autistic son to swim as we had him in lessons and he couldn't cope, wouldn't listen and we were just wasting money. We had 3kids in lessons and got a discount for the third I doubt you will get a discount for a second. Our lessons were $15 each but now teach them all ourselves as we now have a 4th and just can't afford it.

Our swim school offer discounts for each subsequent child. I think we pay $42 a fortnight. That includes a half hour lesson each for DD and DS once per week. It also covers free entry for all of us any time we go to the pool outside of lesson time.
