Goldfish Swim School – It’s Not Only Swimming Lessons!

GSS

When our kids started taking lessons at Goldfish Swim School we didn't realize we were becoming part of a whole community of parents and young children learning to swim. We've been to other swim schools and they just don't have the same offerings as GSS. What do I mean by that? They don't have the amazing staff, for one, but they also don't have the extras that we get at GSS. The swimming lessons are out of this world but it's not only swimming … [Read more...]

Why We Choose Year Round Swimming Lessons

Excited about Swimming

It's been a while since I've posted but I assure you, I'll still here! <3 We've been dealing with a lot of family things lately and of course, school prep is no joke. When your kids go back to school that's one thing. When your husband goes back, too? That's mass chaos. lol I'm joking but it does make for a busier time and a major schedule change in our house. I, for one, am thrilled to be back on somewhat of a schedule. There are some things … [Read more...]

One on One with Our Golden Swim Instructor

Swimming Instructor

Sometimes you just come across someone that exudes a golden personality. They seem to brighten the room (or pool) with just their presence. Miss Vanessa is the swim instructor of both Anthony (7) and Addy (5) and she exudes this personality. When Addy was moved up a few months back she joined her big brother in the same class. They have both become pretty fond of Miss Vanessa in their time with her at Goldfish Swim School. We all know that what … [Read more...]

What Makes Goldfish Swim School Golden?

Golden Employees

Growing up in a small town I got accustomed to pretty much knowing everyone and always getting a neighborly smile and chat with anyone in town I came across. I moved to Michigan 17 years ago and over time I adjusted to living in a metro area where everyone wasn't as open and friendly. In the beginning it bothered me a lot. It's kinda sad that I've gotten use to it. I've recently come across some of that small town goodness again and I've realized … [Read more...]

What Kids Really Think About Goldfish Swim School

Kids_GSS

Kids say just about anything. Mine do anyway. Sometimes they are so funny. The also say very honest things. They will tell you how it is and not mean to be rude (if they are). I often laugh at the things my kids say. It's very entertaining. My five year old, Addy, talks and talks and talks. I don't think the girl knows how to stop sometimes. I thought she would be the perfect one to ask about her experience at Goldfish Swim School. She's normally … [Read more...]

5 Tips for Having Multiple Kids in Swimming Lessons

Having Multiple Kids in Swimming Lessons

Three kids in swimming lessons and a baby in tote can seem overwhelming at times. We've gotten a lot of looks as our crew files into Goldfish Swim School. I'm sure some parents are thinking we must be crazy. It took us a while to get adjusted and organized. Having multiple kids in swimming lessons is only as stressful as you allow it to be. After several months of having three in lessons I think we've finally gotten organized and lesson days have … [Read more...]

Transitioning Classes at Goldfish Swim School

Transitioning Classes at Goldfish Swim School

"Three kids in swimming lessons, it must be rough when one transitions to a new class!" Someone actually said that to me recently when we were discussing swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School. I can see where they might think that. Coordinating classes for three little ones could be a nightmare at the wrong school. Changing classes, even with one child, may seen a bit nerve wrecking to many. That's why today I thought I would discuss our … [Read more...]

Is My Child Ready for Swimming Lessons?

Have fun Swimming

This is a question I found myself asking for far too long. I always knew I wanted my children to learn to swim. I love being in water and swimming so of course I want them to experience this love but my main reason was something else. Simply put, it was for their safety. I want my children to be able to survive if a moment ever arises that they fall into a pool or any body of water. We live around a lot of lakes and in the summer time most people … [Read more...]
