    Hi! I’m Joette Dalton, owner and operator of Goldfish Swim School – Redmond Town Center. My family and I are native midwesterners. We moved to Redmond in 2017 with one goal in mind – to provide water safety skills to Seattle’s Eastside kiddos! After a few close calls with friends, reading shocking statistics about children and water safety, and walking through the doors of Goldfish Swim School – Roscoe Village (Chicago), we knew we had to be part of the Goldfish family. We took a look at the map, and saw an opportunity in these gorgeous cities surrounded by WATER. Growing up, my husband J.J. and I both participated in swim lessons and swim teams. Here is a word that sums up our memory of swim lessons: COLD! In my first experience at a Goldfish Swim School, I noticed kids running for the entry doors, swim instructors handing out high-fives, and that it was WARM! A perfect 90 degree pool, with an enclosed glass deck consisting of a dreamy 92 degrees. Happy kids, happy parents. I am a marketing graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. My smarty pants husband received his MBA from the University of Chicago. He was also a certified lifeguard (back-in-the-day when having a tan was the main priority). We have two awesome girls, Maya & Maisy, who we love spending every minute with. Their favorite thing is snow, and their favorite activity is swimming! We are all super excited to bring the Goldfish curriculum to Seattle’s Eastside! joette.dalton@goldfishss.com
