Swim School

Our number one goal is to teach your child to be safe and self sufficient in the water while giving them a fun learning experience that they will never forget! We do this through group songs and games as well as one on one time with the instructor. We want to do everything in our power to ensure that your child will come away with skills  that they can use for a lifetime.

All of our instructors and Deck Managers are First Aid & CPR certified and have undergone extensive training by our Swim Director. We strive to hold the highest standard for drowning prevention and water safety by having the most alert staff at the pool. We do this because your kids safety is so important to us. Stop by and find out why we are the only swim program in town with the confidence to offer 100% tuition-back guarantee.

Private Swim Lessons

3 -12yr

This one on one class puts your child on a fast track to learning those all important safety skills with undivided attention from our teachers. As with all of our classes, the goal of private lessons is to help your child be safe and self sufficient in the water.

Private lessons are held on a weekly basis. Call our office to schedule your private lessons: 665.7200

Watching Policy:

We would love for you to hang out on the deck and watch your child’s progress. We have provided a covered area with chairs for you while your child swims. If you have questions about your child’s progress or lessons, don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher after class.

No Swim School Make Ups … But Why?

Why do we offer make ups in other Leaps & Bounds programs but not Swim? We made a value judgment to prioritize the educational value and safety of our 4:1 ratio over the convenience of make-ups. We hope you agree with our decision. Sorry, no prorated credits or refunds for any reason (see provisions for rain days below). We will hold makeups if we miss more than one day of class due to unsafe weather.

Sorry, we do not give the multiple children or multiple class discount for swim.

Rainy Day Policy:

We operate in an outdoor pool and because safety is of the utmost importance, we will not have classes if we observe thunder and lightening. Unfortunately, the weather is a factor that we cannot control (As much as we wish we could!)

  • In the event of bad weather, we will call you at least 30 minutes before your class begins to let you know if it is cancelled. If you do not get a call, assume that class is still on.
  • You are guaranteed 7 full classes, with 8 classes possible. We save Friday’s for rainy day makeup days.  If class is cancelled once, we will not hold a makeup class. If class is cancelled twice, we will make up on a Friday.  You will always be notified via email about when makeup classes will be held.

Important Information

1. Our swim program is designed to teach your child how to be safe and self sufficient in the water. Your child will walk away from our program with instinctive skills regarding water safety. And lots of fun memories!

3. Our pools are 4′ deep all around. We have viewing areas and restrooms as well as changing facilities. We welcome you to watch from the pool deck.

5. Our small, 4:1 ratio exists for one reason– to provide a unique and exceptional swim experience for your child. However, there is a downside to our small ratios: it limits the number of students we are able to accept and favorite classes fill up quickly. Don’t wait!

We can’t wait to meet you and your little swimmer!
