Testimonials

Strictly professional and passionate about what they do.

Every individual who is part of this organization is strictly professional and passionate about what they do. From my first contact over the phone to the instructors everyone was professional & patient to answer all my questions. The main office has great communication, as well as, the instructors. They reported my children progress after every class & what they needed to work on. My children are 7 & 9 with no previous exposure to swim lessons in the past. The instructors were extremely patient and helped my kids progress rapidly.

My 4 yr and 2 yr old have really blossomed in the program.

Both my boys are in the 1 a week classes and really enjoy them, teachers are good with the kids and approach getting to know each kid in a different way. The teachers can change from time to time, but they are always good about transitioning with the old and new teachers to ease the transition for the little kids/2 and under groups. My 4 yr and 2 yr old have really blossomed in the program and love the teachers and swimming! We plan to move them up to 2x a week because they enjoy it so much.

The instructors are professional and work well with the kids.

We started my daughter here a few months ago. The instructors are professional and work well with the kids. The class size is optimal as it gives the instructors time with each student individually without making the other kids in the class wait too long. In addition to teaching kids how to swim and the various strokes, they also teach water safety. They do not allow goggles for the first few levels unless medically necessary due to chlorine sensitivity. This allows the kids to get used to swimming without them – a plus if they were to accidentally fall into a pool, lake, or pond.

Would highly recommend this swimming program.

Our daughter had taken swim classes on and off since she was a toddler. We probably used about 3 different programs/schools, but no one was really able to conquer her fear of putting her face in the water. When our daughter was 6, we decided to commit to British Swim School. Both of the instructors she has had (Ms. Tara and Ms. Courtney) were kind and patient, but also firm. They never forced her, but would ask her to do a bit more each class so that she slowly became more comfortable. Now she jumps into the pool and is making steady progress on her strokes. When we saw how successful the program was for our daughter, we also enrolled our 18 month old son. He had fun and got used to the water in the parent-assisted Tadpole class with Ms. Christina and Ms. Tara. He recently transitioned to the “big boy” Young Minnow class which does not have parents in the pool. Ms. Tara was very thoughtful and clever about his transition, which went VERY smoothly. All of instructors take the time to get know each child and figure out what would motivate him/her. They also check in frequently with parents to make sure they are comfortable with the techniques being used. We have seen a tremendous amount of growth for each of our children and would highly recommend this swimming program.

We love the whole program!

We love the whole program! Our son has been through many caps, and he enjoys every time when we go to the swimming lessons.
