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.

    Our 3 year old daughter loves Goldfish! We were so excited to see weekly lessons begin again! I wasn’t sure what we were going to experience with the new changes, but I must say Goldfish is doing it RIGHT! The kids were welcomed with open “fins.” You can clearly see the extra time and effort being put in to ensure our safety and our daughter is already counting down to her next class! Thank you for continuing to make her experience so positive!

    My 5 year old was afraid of getting water on his face and was not a fan of the swimming idea when he first started. However, in less than 6 months, not only did he love putting his face in the water, but he was swimming independently! Now swimming is one of his favorite activities and he is excited for the days he goes to class. His instructor has really worked with him and she has been as proud of his accomplishments as I have been! That’s how much they care about their students.
