Children’s swim lessons in Chapel Hill

Helping Kids Learn Through the Science of SwimPlay®

At Goldfish Swim School, we want children to enjoy swimming and learn life skills they can use outside of the pool, as well. Developmental psychologists have found through research how guided play is beneficial for a child’s cognitive growth. That’s why our instructors incorporate The Science of SwimPlay® in everything we teach. This holistic philosophy helps children learn life skills in a small class with a maximum student/teacher ratio of 4:1.
