Our Philosophy: Swimming is one of life’s necessary skills and America’s Best Kids Swim School offers the best quality swim instruction for all children. With our state of the art swimming pool, warm 90-degree water and saline filtration, your child will have the perfect learning environment. Your child will learn at a faster rate and gain the necessary skills to be comfortable and safer around the water. Our program is based on safety and positive learning environment for your child. We take the role we play in your child’s life very seriously. Not only do we want your child to gain the love of the water, but also teach them the skills that boost their self-esteem and general athleticism outside of the pool. We have a 4 to 1 ratio for the lower level classes and a 5 to 1 ratio for the higher levels swimmers. Minnow & Me classes have a ratio of 8 to 1 due to the assistance of parent participation.
Our Curriculum: Our curriculum has been adapted from years of teaching experience from our staff and from other independent swim schools nationwide. We combine up-to-date instruction style and techniques using the latest swim aids on the market to assist your child in learning at a faster pace.
