“Quality of Lesson” Consideration
Kids World Groups: Group lessons are just that – multiple children with a variety of personalities, goals (including expectations from parents), energy levels & abilities. That’s a great thing; friends are part of what makes Kids World so fun! We take a good look at each wonderful child entrusted to our care and place them in the group that makes the most sense with respect to the big picture for that day. That can mean mixed ages with matched abilities, some groups smaller than others due to skill set, and it ALWAYS means some variation of skill even within a group. If you are adamant that your child only ski or snowboard with others of the exact (or near exact) same ability level, we encourage you to consider a Private Lesson as this is the setting in which we can guarantee one-on-one attention and a lesson that moves at a pace customized to your child’s ability.

Private Lessons: Private lessons allow an individual, a group of friends or families to customize a lesson to their abilities and goals. Experience has shown that the greatest amount of learning and progress occurs when age and ability are very similar. If progress is your primary goal, then we strongly encourage you to avoid placing student of greatly differing ages and/or abilities in the same lesson. If togetherness is your primary consideration, then we encourage you to contact Ski and Snowboard School to discuss what a mixed age/ability lesson might look like for your group.
