Make up FAQ'S
What is your make-up policy?
What about students who are late for a lesson?
I don't see the class I need -- do you have more classes available?
Why no makeups? We are the first swim school in the Triangle to be certified by the Durham Living Wage Project. Unfortunately, many programs with generous makeup policies afford this by underpaying staff. We pay all of our staff and teachers a living wage and believe that if one of their students does not show up to class on a given day, that teacher should still be paid for the time they spent waiting for the absent student. It is not the teacher's fault if one of their students is absent, but unfortunately at other schools that allow makeups, they often suffer for it. Our policy helps us attract and retain the very best swim teachers in the area, plus keep our prices low! We hope you will join us in supporting your child's swim teachers by understanding our reasoning for this policy.
