Our Philosophy

Guided Play + Safe Environment = The Science of SwimPlay®

Every parent wants the best for their kids. It’s why development books, educational DVDs and parenting courses are so popular. But it’s all so overwhelming. So what works the best? Well, science says the foundation for a child’s cognitive growth is rooted in two key factors: a safe environment and learning through guided play at any age. Yes, play. This is how kids develop the skills that ultimately give them the courage to dive into new experiences.

The fact is your child’s potential is in there. Sometimes you just need to add water.

Goldfish Swim School was created by parents, for parents, with this goal in mind — to give kids the platform to build essential life skills that will help them make waves in life. We’ve created an inviting and safe place where kids overcome their fears, learn to swim, respect the water and have lots of fun while doing it. Our award-winning tropical environment and shiver-free pools are simply the fun backdrop for where kids do some serious growing and learning. So while we’re focused on the serious stuff, your family will be focused on the fun. It’s what we call The Science of SwimPlay®.

It’s about momentum. Forward movement, growth. It’s about showing kids that they are something, will be something and, whether that’s the next president or a role in the school play, that something will be undeniably them. As parents, we know there’s no greater feeling than the pride that comes with witnessing your child accomplish new skills — that’s why we’re always celebrating at Goldfish. Because every little dose of achievement adds up to big self-esteem. And after all, life is one big pool. At Goldfish Swim School, we’re here to give kids the courage to dive in.

    My daughter Martina is enrolled in regular swim lessons and the jump star clinic from June 18th to June 22nd. I never could have believed that 30 minutes a day in 5 days swim lessons could produce the results that I have witnessed with my daughter. Martina started with Junior 2 and moved up to Gliders 3 in just one week!! It seems super crazy but it is truly amazing! We are so glad about that !!! Your swim program and instructors work miracles. I couldn't believe how quickly and easily how quickly the instructors were able to teach Martina. When our schedule gets hectic and needs to reschedule Martina's lessons and jump-start clinic for a couple of times, they have been a huge help, very supportive, and thoughtful. Many THANKS! I definitely would recommend Goldfish swimming to everyone I know!

    I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how amazing my first experience there was. Everyone from the front desk staff, to the instructor, to the lifeguard, and even some random guy in the lobby in a Goldfish Polo was so welcoming. My Travis is only 4 months old so this was my first time and I had no idea what to expect. They walked me through everything, showed me around the facility, and placed an arm band on me so everyone knew it was my first day. I couldn't believe all the things you can do with a 4 month old in a pool and was so impressed with the creativity. The instructor was so fantastic. I was understandably uncomfortable dunking my infant under the water but she explained how that worked and I was totally on board. I couldn't believe I was able to do that with him on the first day! I am totally hooked and absolutely cannot wait for next week! Thank you all so much for such a fantastic experience! You have a wonderful program for first-timers!
