Review from Caprice
I was recently at a public swimming pool playing with my daughter when a young girl went bouncing by us on her toes. She passed us and then I heard the lifeguard jump in behind me and pull this same girl out! Drowning is not noisy and dramatic like shown in the movies. It was quite and fast. I looked at my own daughter swimming around confidently and I knew with a wave of relief that would never be her. I spent years glancing at Swim Float Swim! from the outside as I drove by the building on my trips around town. At one point I looked up the cost and thought “There’s no way I can do that.” Now I wish that I had enrolled my now 6 year old daughter sooner and saved myself so much stress! I won’t lie, the first 3 days my daughter was in class were hard. When your child is calling out for you and scared, it’s hard not to rush in and SAVE them. But, I knew the point of being here was that I wanted her to be able to SAVE herself. The staff was so supportive and after 3 days my daughter was smiling and swimming across the pool! This is the best thing that I have ever done for her and a gift of ability and confidence that she will have her whole life. We tried years of other swim classes and had a moment of terror when she slipped in and the instructor, busy with a huge group of kids, didn’t notice. My daughter came to Swim Float Swim scared to put her face under the water; she has been at Swim Float Swim now for 4 months and she can out swim me! I cannot even express how grateful I am for this program and stress enough how it is worth every cent you will spend. I had another moment recently where my daughter went with a group of children down by a pond to visit the wildlife there. I heard some parents of these children worrying about the visit and I was again so thankful for Swim Float Swim, I knew if my daughter happened to fall in on this visit, she would know exactly what to do.
