    “We went back to Goldfish for the first time since March and I was so impressed with how the staff is handling the current situation we’re all living in! The attention to cleanliness, social distancing and precautions was above my expectations. My two daughters were so happy to be back in the water and it was like they hadn’t missed a beat! Thank you Goldfish Swim School for doing an amazing job “reopening” in this current environment we live in.”

    “I was really nervous about returning to swim lessons, but after our first class back, I am confident I made the right decision. The changes you have implemented made me feel like my child was safe in the pool area, and I felt safe in the viewing area. The lanes are wider, there were only a couple of children per lane, the instructors wore face shields, the viewing area only had a few other adults, and we were at least 10ft apart, if not more, and those were just a few of the changes that made me feel good. The best part was just seeing how happy my son was, being back at Goldfish! Water safety is important to me, so thank you for finding a safer way to provide your lessons!”

    “I knew that Goldfish would be an excellent first step back to "normal" activities. We've always been so pleased with how clean, well run and just genuinely wonderful the Marlborough location and crew are, Pre-Covid. Now, it's a place that my girls are excited to head back to, even before they finish the current week's lesson. Well done Goldfish. Thank you.”

    “Nothing but good things to say about Goldfish Swim School! Before Goldfish opened, my son had swimming lessons elsewhere, and it didn't go very well. The water was "too cold" for him to ever want to try to swim let alone go in the water . That all changed when we found Goldfish swim school. Not only is the facility extremely visually appealing and inviting, the water is WARM! My son learned how to go underwater way faster than I ever imagined, and has been learning new skills ever since! Staff has always been very friendly and great with all of the kids. I was nervous to return to covid after the pandemic, but they couldn't have done a better job with ensuring everyone's safety and putting my mind at ease. They have changed things drastically, from class size, building capacity, frequent sanitizing, and social distancing. They seem to be doing everything right since reopening and I have no concerns whatsoever. I highly recommend Goldfish swim school for these reasons and more.”

As a result the wonderful environment at Goldfish - excellent and cheerful teachers, warm water and air, and positive, child-oriented atmosphere - she quickly learned to love the water and feel entirely at home in the pool.”

    Fantastic with my Autistic Son!

    “I take my 8 year old Autistic Son to the Goldfish Swim School and they have been wonderful beyond what I could have ever imagined with him! I have been looking for years (not an exaggeration) to find somewhere for him to take swim lessons. They are so patient with him, and when he is having a bad day they just walk him through it and make it work. I have never seen them annoyed or upset with him and it is just wonderful to watch. As most parents with special needs children you understand how special it is to find a place that accepts your child for how they are. Which I think is perfect of course :) So thank you to everyone at Goldfish for all that you do!”

    Dedication and Trust

    “Today marked the 4th lesson my little Goldfish has had at the Goldfish Swim School. Overall, I went in scared after hearing other testimonials from friends on how they threw kids into pools and let them swim it out and I am so glad that I took the time to come here! The staff at Goldfish are exceptional! From check-in to the actual swim instructors this team is a well oiled machine! The water is comfortable and the class sizes are small. Within a few lessons, my little one went from complete fear of being in the water to floating, and and jumping in all by himself! Instructors know your little one by name, making them feel so special. My family and our son will be forever grateful for receiving such high-quality lessons from Goldfish. We recommend Goldfish to all our friends and family!”

    Great Experience!

    “I took my 7 year old son there for swim lessons and I was very impressed with the way his instructor took the time to help get use to the water. At first my son was hesitant but after the first 15 minutes of the assistance of his instructor, he was much calmer and became more relaxed to the water. My son’s fear of water is slowly going away. Thank you so much!”

    THANKS

    “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!”

    Worth Every Penny

    “My daughter has been a student at Goldfish since she has was 8 months old. Her teachers have been outstanding. They always great us with a smile, and are very outgoing. We recently went on a family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, Ohio where we saw my daughter use all of the things she has learned at Goldfish over the years and made every penny spent on lessons well worth it. Keep up the great work!”

    Our daughter, Brielle (now 11 months old) is in the Mini 1 class. She loves it! My husband and I continue to be impressed with the wide range of class options, family swim times, level of instruction, friendly staff and inviting facility. This has been a t

    “Earlier this summer when Olympic skier Bode Miller's daughter drowned, it sparked an overwhelming concern. It pushed me to do more research on swim lessons and ask more questions around water safety. I was shocked to learn that drowning is the leading cause of death for children aged 1 - 4 years. Goldfish was recommended to our family by a friend and after a tour of the facility led by the general manager - it was a no-brainer for us to enroll our daughter. At 10 months old, our daughter Brielle took the plunge in the Mini 1 class! About one month in - we couldn't be happier with our decision. The level of instruction, inviting facility and friendly staff are unmatched.”

    Super Happy!

    “I have all three of my children in swim school at Goldfish and I could not be more pleased with the amazing facility, professional manner of the entire staff and the progress I have seen my kids make in their swimming. My youngest, who is three, was terrified of the deep end and going to the pool was a nightmare for me making sure the older two had fun but sitting in one foot of water every pool trip. Now, she loves swimming and is so confident and comfortable in the water. We are super happy with Goldfish. Thank you!”

    Best Decision for my Apprehensive Fishies

    “Enrolling my 2 daughters into Goldfish may be one of the best decisions I've made for them thus-far. I've tried various swimming programs and to no avail, they simply didn't work. Goldfish has really set the standard for allowing kids to be comfortable in the water while learning the basics of swimming. I now have 2 little fishies (2yo & 8yo) that are excited and demanding that we go to swimming class more than they are scheduled. I am so grateful for Goldfish and can't wait to watch my girls finally embrace their time in the water!!!”

    Amazing place to have your kids learn to swim!!!

    “My son was taking lessons at a different school and I was so tired of always getting different instructors and him never advancing, and to say the front desk staff was awful to deal with is an understatement, at Goldfish swim school the staff could not be any more friendly or more welcoming!!! From the phone call to setting up his class, to the instructors EVERYONE was absolutely awesome!!! We walked out with my son asking when he can come back. This school is a God sent and so happy we found it. I can not say enough good things about this school and all the staff members. ”

    This place is amazing - the ONLY place I will bring my son to learn how to swim

    “I cannot say enough about this facility! Everything from the building to the amenities to the staff and the teachers. We have never had a bad experience here and everyone is always so helpful and cheerful. The few times my son did not have a good lesson experience, was because he was leary of a new teacher and not because the staff or teachers did anything. Yet, the teachers worked with him during the lesson and the deck advisor kept checking in on him throughout the lesson. The owner even came over to us following the lesson and offered a free make-up lesson! I was amazed by how well they handled that situation as well as those time that my toddler was acting out a few weeks in a row. Their level of patience exceeds my own at times. They know and remember our family and little personal traits about my son; I am so glad I found them. This is the third place I've brought my son since he was an infant and I will never leave! This place is worth every penny. I hope my son continues on to their swim team program and we can stay connected with them far into the future.”

    This place really has it together!!

    “This was our daughter's first lesson. Right from the start Goldfish is very welcoming. They explained everything in detail and our daughter even received a Gold fish t-shirt. The I instructors were quick to see the area she needs help in the most and adjusted her lesson around it. At the end of the lesson the instructor let us now what she needed to work on as well as what she did well. The amenities here are awesome as well with a bathing suit dryer and hair dryers, a snack bar and lounge areas for the parents. The best part is the glass divider in between the pool and the viewing area. It keeps the viewing area quiet which is a nice 30 min relaxation time for busy parents. We couldnt recommend a better swim class in the area!!!!!”

    Changed his view!

    “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.”

    “Two months ago, our 9 year old mildly autistic son wouldn't be in a pool without clinging to someone or something. Today, after 4 lessons, he dived to the bottom of the pool to pick up a ring. His teacher is so encouraging, she makes all the difference! Thank you so much!”

    Kudos to Goldfish Swimming School

    “This summer my son has missed quiet a few sessions due to being sick, this past Saturday one of the young ladies informed me that because of his birthday he will be to old for the class he is presently in and will be moving up to another class. The staff is very courteous and his instructor is AWESOME although he still has some fear of water she's great at working with to get past his fears and relax. Kudos to the Goldfish family for the patient and understanding!!!!!!!!!”

    Amazing first time experience!

    “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!”

He specially loves the warm(er) water and he describes the area as “fancy” with always a summer vibe. My daughter who is 4 never had feelings of apprehension. She was comfortable in the water on her 1st ever class. Big kudos to her instructors who are very compassionate!”

    Worth every bit!

    “I had my daughter in swim through Rochester School District and they’re just in it for the money. It was 8-10 students per class that’s ridiculous. After seeing how my daughter was struggling due to amount of student and lack of help from the instructors, I grew tired and went on the the hunt for actual swim schools. Came across Goldfish and I was immediately sold. Class group of size of 4 helped a lot with her learning and she went up a class her first day. Unlike Rochester School District the instructors were hands on and very passionate. My daughter has confidence boost and is now happy and and so am I.”

    Best swim school ever!

    “My 4 year old has autism spectrum disorder and gross motor skill delays. I first started her in Mini 1 as a baby and it's unbelievable how far she's come over the years. She's very smart but challenged socially, and her instructor was able to communicate with her on a whole new level. When she first started, she was afraid to get in the water. I think the 90-degree water temperature made it easier to learn to swim. She can also float on her back, which she used to be so scared of. The staff were also very accommodating toward her sensory issues (allowing for breaks, etc.) and she loves swim lessons. She's now in Glider 2.”

    “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!”

    They don’t get rattled

    “I handed my screaming 2 year old grandson to the pool leader and she immediately said, “This is no problem, we deal with this all the time”. He continued to cry for 30 mins. His response was the same Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then came Friday. No crying and he actually started floating and swimming a little. “They don’t get rattled”.”
