If you’re like me, you’re already planning your summer family vacation to the beach or any hotel that has a pool! This is why it’s so important to start swim lessons now! January gives you and your children a solid six month start to water safety. So we decided to check out Charlotte’s Goldfish Swim School Charlotte.
Wesley is not a fan of water, even bath time is a real struggle for him. But only two weeks in he is doing great! He loves to get in with the instructors and kicking his little feet. He’s working on closing his mouth and keeping his eyes open under the water! He even holds himself up on the wall by himself and he’s only 2 years old!!
When Wesley is hesitant they use toys and positive motivation tricks to get him into the water and as soon as he’s in he’s as happy as a clam! There are two other little boys in the class with them and let me tell you, the staff and instructors are beyond patient. They want to ensure the children have a safe and enriched experience while learning the basics of getting comfortable and water safety.
Colette LOVES her instructor at Goldfish Swim Academy. He regressed a little bit since the summer so he worked so hard on building back up her confidence and skill level. Even last summer she wasn’t floating on her back but now (with a little help from her instructor) she’s laying back and floating belly up. Each week she shows improvement and cannot wait until the next class!
My favorite part of Goldfish Swim School Charlotte is the set up. It is super clean and everything is set up for smooth transitions. As soon as you walk in, you scan your child’s card, walk right over to the changing huts, and can wait for the lifeguard to call your child into the lesson by the craft table or the fish tank. While the children are having their lessons you can take a seat behind the glass (and there are no obstructions to watch your child’s lesson). When the lesson is finished you have time to discuss your child’s progress and goals with the instructor. Then they walk over to the showers to get showered off and then off to the drying bar. Which the kids like to use while practicing their “surfing” skills. Also if you forgot anything at home they have everything you need for purchase (of course I forgot Tank’s swim diaper but in my welcome bag they gave me a 20% off coupon that I could use towards a new one).
I highly recommend getting your kiddos signed up now so that by the summer time everyone (including you) can enjoy your summer vacation! Thank you Goldfish Swim School Charlotte for sponsoring.
