Back in February Henry started taking weekly swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School, a brand new swim facility near our house. I was a little hesitant to enroll him because the summer before he never really caught on when we signed him up for a few lessons. After his first lesson at Goldfish he was hooked. The 30 minute lessons are perfect for his energetic self and he truly looks forward to swim class every week. Although Henry is still working on his confidence, he has acquired all the skills to be a great little swimmer. Goldfish has everything I’m looking for in a swim school for kids. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and helpful. The instructors are well trained, attentive, and interact nicely with children. They are patient, positive, and encouraging. I love how energetic they are and they all seem to truly love what they’re doing. There is a lifeguard who is constantly walking the pool during classes and monitoring the kids. I absolutely love the small group lessons which have 4 kids or less. There have been a few times when Henry has been the only child in class and wound up getting a private lesson.
Everything in Goldfish has been specially designed and created with children in mind. From the colorful chairs to the changing stalls, this swim school caters 100% to children. I love the adorable blow dry station which has plenty of hair dryers and the swim suit drying machines are pretty genius. There are multiple changing stalls, bathrooms and cubbies as well as showers for the kids. Every inch of this amazing swim facility is extremely clean and never smells like chemicals. The indoor heated people is kept at 90 degrees all year long and there is a separate air conditioned viewing gallery for parents to watch lessons or work. Goldfish also has an extremely flexible make up policy. We all know how schedules can change and they have always been so accommodating when we’ve had to make up a class or change the date (they also do not charge extra for make up classes!) We’ve had such a positive 10 weeks at Goldfish and I am certain that is the main reason Henry has adapted so easily.
