    I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit about Goldfish Swim School with you. It’s truly an exciting time when children learn how to swim! One of the reasons we decided to open Goldfish in this great community is because we’ll get to see children develop swim skills that truly make a difference in their lives. Our instructors will go the extra mile by taking time to teach our little swimmers at their level and according to their ability. Our goal is to help them not only learn life-saving skills, but also build character, confidence and other important life skills. I invite you to stop by the facility or give us a call at 732-865-9800 for your personal consultation and to discuss our programs and classes. I look forward to welcoming your family! rand.barba@goldfishss.com
