Why We Do What We Do
Learning is challenging, and, especially in learning to swim, sometimes very scary. We teach that you can trust in others to help you, to understand you. We inspire and bring out the best in our children, and then reflect their best back to them. Children not only learn to swim, they learn to trust, in themselves and in the world around them, they learn to try their best, they learn that their best is rewarded unconditionally.
Children begin to learn what makes them uniquely special. For a 3 year old, this is often the first time that they are put into a learning environment without their parents. It is one of the first times that they will be challenged to learn a skill alongside their peers. It will be one of the first times that their success in accomplishing a goal will be under scrutiny. As a teacher I give them everything I have to learn the skills necessary to swim. As a teacher I realize the most important thing I can bring out of our children is their laughter, their smiles, their stories. I never waver on the goal, learn to swim, but they are beginning the discovery of who they are, and this discovery is what they learn to apply to achieve success.
This discovery is what will help lead them to happiness and success in life. I believe this. The parents believe this. This discovery is what the parents rave about, what the children spend all week, till their next lesson, talking about to whomever will listen. The dedication to this objective is why we are more than a swim school, this is why we are a Swim Academy.
