Policies & Procedures

At Tiny Fins Survival Swim, we believe in a commitment between parents and instructors. Because our survival swim technique focuses on muscle memory, it is imperative that children come to their scheduled lessons. Please read our policies and procedures to gain a better understanding of what’s expected.


We offer both morning and evening lessons to accommodate work and school schedules accordingly. Please let us know your preference when you register and we will accommodate your availability.


To register for Tiny Fins Survival Swim lessons, there is a non-refundable $50 fee.


Students who attend their scheduled lessons have a higher chance of survival in a water emergency. Consistent lessons help with learning and progression.

That being said, we understand illnesses and emergencies may arise. We are more than happy to accommodate your family.

If you plan to be absent, here’s what to do:

Mark your child absent in the app, email scheduling@tinyfinssurvivalswim.com, or give us a call at (417) 374-7013 as soon as you know your child will not be able to attend that lesson, so we can plan accordingly.


Each child will receive 3 free make-up classes within a 6-month period. This means if your child is ill or an emergency arises that causes your child to miss a lesson, we will schedule a make-up lesson (one per instance, up to 3 times).

If your child needs more than that in a 6-month period, each make-up lesson will be $10.

Make-up lessons must be scheduled within 2 weeks of the child’s absence.

We cannot issue refunds or credits for missed lessons.


If you plan on dropping your child’s swim lessons, a 30- day written notice must be emailed to scheduling@tinyfinssurvivalswim.com with a drop date.
