How long and how many lessons do I need?

What is the minimum age to enroll?
Is your child over the age of 4? (I do sometimes make exceptions for extremely precocious 3 year olds)
Can your child sit and focus for 30 minutes of lesson time? Does your child exhibit interest in music? Does your child know how to read? If yes, then they are most likely ready. Children who cannot yet read could possibly still be ready for lessons on a more ear-based method if their attention span and drive are superior.
Every child is unique. From age 3-6 every child has a completely different level of developed maturity and interest in the piano, so I would like you to please schedule a trial lesson and I will assess whether lessons are suitable for your child at that point in time.
By the way, on the other end of the spectrum, you are never too old to begin piano lessons.
