5 Reasons Why We Love Swim Lessons at Goldfish Swim School!
Swim safety is one of the most important things we can teach our children. It is terrifying to think of what can happen in just a split second in a pool. With summer approaching, it is so important to get our kids prepared!
I was very excited to be back this week (after a long absence due to winter germs & my kids being sick)! My older daughter moved up 2 groups, & my younger daughter moved up 1! It really is awesome as a parent to watch them weekly make progress, earn ribbons & move up the different levels!
Now I would love to share the top 5 reasons that we love Goldfish Swim School so much!
1) The staff is incredible. The last place you want your kids to be uncomfortable is in a learning environment. It would make it just impossible for them to learn if they do not like who they are learning from. My kids LOVE their instructors. They are warm, gentle, patient, & fun! No wonder my kids ask when we are going to Goldfish again on a daily basis!
2) The progress is gradual. Your child will progress more each week & you can watch it as it happens. The skills they are learning happen in a natural, gradual way. They are not scared into learning quickly, they do it week by week. This is SO important. That way they are really ingraining into them the skills they are learning!
3)Consistency is key! I love routine. My kids love routine. All kids pretty much love routine. Routine makes children feel safe & more at ease. Goldfish is very consistent. Every week they are called in the same way, have the same teacher, sit in the same lane, and end class the same way! Children know exactly what to expect every week & that helps them be more at ease to learn.
4)Goldfish’s Jump Start Clinics are effective! Last summer my older daughter did a few weeks of jump start clinics. This means she went every single day at the same time with the same teacher. It was the equivalent to over a month’s worth of lessons in a week’s time. It is a good way to get an extra boost or skill in a shorter amount of time! They are also offering them spring break, so if you will be around then I would for sure sign up for that!
5)Goldfish cares about their students! I see the staff light up when they see their students happy, excited, & having fun while learning. A supportive, cohesive staff makes the whole experience even brighter & greater. The kids feed off the energy of the staff & you can see that happen right in front of you!
