|Not going in the pool for lessons|
When we(Gordon, Mia & myself - it's a family thing we do everything together usually) arrived for the first lesson we came across a sign in the parking lot that the YMCA was closed for a fundraiser. I'm ok with that, it's their thing, they do yearly what I'm not ok with is that No one EVER told us and the staff even wrote down the dates for us to be a the lessons. Off to the water park we went, it was a place that Mia would have fun and take away the disappointment of her swimming lessons not happening.
On to the next weekend, I take Mia this time since Gordon had to be out of town for a seminar. Mia is excited to go swimming and when we arrive they are actually open :)
Fast forward here......it took 45 minutes of my daughter screaming "no" until I could get her close to the pool by then the class was just about over. Finally in the pool with me, class on the total opposite end of the pool. I asked the instructor if she could take Mia around on the kick board like she did with the class (as Mia was screaming by the side of the pool) and the instructor agreed.
|That yellow pad is where Mia SHOULD be|
I was and still am sooooooooooooo pissed.
Here we are, weekend #3 and guess what......................yep you got it.......Class cancelled once again and WITHOUT a phone call.
I finally reached the director of aquatics for the YMCA today and discussed the chain of events and advised her that we wanted a refund for all of the classes and wouldn't be returning. The director was very apologetic and offered to give Mia 2 free Private lessons with only her, I told her I would have to get back to her on that.................would you go back there??
Today I am calling a few pvt instructors that have been referred to me, even IF we did take those 2 free pvt lessons at the Y I am still going to do pvt swim lessons one on one for Mia at our house.
