Swimming Lessons During COVID-19

Unfortunately, we are once again forced to close our pool and will be postponing lessons for the full month of January.

As some of you may already know, as of 12:01AM on January 5th, 2022 the government of Ontario will be implementing another shut down which will force KCS to close its doors yet again for a period of 21 days.

At KCS, the safety of our families is our number one priority. When open, to ensure our lessons are safe for your kids and for our team members we have:

  • Implemented a Covid-19 safety protocols;
  • Adapted our lesson plans to reduce the amount of physical contact between your kids and our Aquatic Educators.

We will also continue to closely follow all of our existing COVID-safety measures.

IMPORTANT: COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Requirement for Guests 18 and Over 

Please note that the government of Ontario published regulations that require us to introduce a mandatory vaccine certification policy. To that end, effective at 12:01AM on September 22, 2021, all KCS guests, aged 18 and over (except for guests with recognized exemptions as detailed in our mandatory vaccine policy), will be required to provide both a proof of vaccination status (either in paper or electronic) and also present an approved government-issued photo-ID in order to enter a KCS Centre.

How Monthly Lessons Work

Our facility operates on a recurring monthly subscription basis so instead of sessions you sign up for the month of swimming. The subscription includes 1 weekly lesson at the same swim time and date or a total of 4 lessons per month.

If you are registering for a class mid-month, you would pay a prorated fee for the remaining classes in the month, and regular recurring monthly billing would begin on the 1st of the next month.

The subscription automatically renews on the 26th of the month for the following month of swimming with your same swim time and date unless you choose to cancel.

Do I Have to Sign a Contract? How do I Cancel?

While you register for classes on a calendar monthly basis, and your subscription renews automatically each month with your same swim time and date, there is no contract.

To cancel your subscription all you need to do is to log in to your parent portal account and cancel the class before the 25th of the month.

What if I Miss a Class – Do You Have Makeups?

We are very excited to announce that we will be reverting back to our original makeup lesson policy as of January 4th, 2022. Each swimmer registered in a low-ratio group lesson is entitled to one (1) make-up lesson per month (12 per year) if they have missed a class for any reason. We will be accommodating any additional absences related to COVID-19 on a case by case basis.

Make-up classes can only be scheduled when your child is a registered swimmer at KidsCanSwim.  If you cancel your registration, your unused token is no longer valid.

The make-up tokens are automatically issued and visible in your Parent Portal,  following their missed class. You do not have to do anything. Make-up tokens are valid for sixty (60) days after the date on which the absence occurred.

Make-up tokens can only be used to book a make-up class 7 days in advance.

As a matter of courtesy to others, we appreciate you notifying us of upcoming absence(s) as early as possible via the Parent Portal.  This will make a space in a class for others who may be looking to schedule a make-up the day of your absence. However, you will only be able to book a make-up class after you have missed your scheduled class by using your make-up token which will be automatically issued on your Account.

Make-up token(s) are non-transferrablenon-refundable, have no cash value, and can not be used to pay an outstanding balance with us.

COVID-19 Diagnosis

While we do not provide refunds, we understand that the pandemic has created some difficult situation for our KCS family – thus, should any member of your family be diagnosed with COVID-19 we will credit your account with 2 weeks’ worth of missed lessons (same value as you paid) and hold your existing swim time and date upon the provision of a medical note. This credit is valid for 90 days.

What’s Survival Week?

Every month includes Survival Week training, where we work on core survival skills. Kids will learn what it’s like to swim with their clothes on, how to call for and receive help, how to tread water, and more.
