The Science of SwimPlay®

Have you ever noticed how quickly kids pick up new skills when they’re playing a game? Whether it’s learning how to spell by playing Scrabble or strengthening listening skills in a game of Simon Says, kids learn during play. At Goldfish Swim School, we’re here to teach kids how to swim (and more) through our own special brand of guided play. We call it The Science of SwimPlay®.

Haven’t heard of The Science of SwimPlay®? No worries – we’re here to fill you in:

What is The Science of SwimPlay®?

Science says kids build upon their cognitive growth by two things: Learning through guided play, and doing so in a safe environment. That’s what we’re doing at Goldfish Swim School every single day with The Science of SwimPlay®! We’re helping kids develop lifelong skills that allow them to grow and dive into new experiences – in a safe environment – all while playing, which is the best way for them to learn.

How Goldfish Swim School incorporates The Science of SwimPlay®

We’ve created an environment at Goldfish Swim School where kids can feel safe. Our locations are specifically designed with a fun, colorful tropical décor, creating a calm and inviting atmosphere. The water in our pools is always set at a balmy 90 degrees – meaning no shivers or purple lips, and no trepidation about jumping into a cold pool.

In addition, our instructors display integrity, compassion and trust with each child. Whether that means calming a crying child who is just getting used to being in the water and away from parents, working with a child who has special needs, or perhaps even helping guide a child with ADHD, our instructors have the training and skills to help make sure every child feels safe at Goldfish Swim School.

But even more, we’re here at Goldfish Swim School to help unlock your child’s potential. We give kids a platform to acquire essential skills and show them how they can make waves in life. During swim lessons each week, we focus on helping kids overcome their fears while learning to swim.

We build up confidence with each new skill acquired, and kids can proudly show off their award ribbon when they see their extraordinary results. Because we know, as parents, how much pride you feel watching your kids accomplish new skills – and we want to celebrate, too!

We teach kids how to be safer in and around the water, and how to respect the water. But because we’re incorporating The Science of SwimPlay® in every aspect at Goldfish Swim School, kids learn water safety while playing – so that it just becomes second nature.

Most importantly, we’ve built our curriculum in such a way that kids don’t even realize how much they’re learning; they’re only focused on how much FUN they’re having! And so are the parents. We want all of you to have a GOLDEN experience each and every time. We will focus on the serious learning stuff while you’re focused on the fun…it’s all part of The Science of SwimPlay®.
