Like a proud mama bear, I am so happy to report on the accomplishments my mini-me has made since taking swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School – Garden City.

She began taking lessons in July, and while she was previously taking lessons at another swim school, her progress with being comfortable in the swimming pool and learning swimming skills was slow.  Plus, she did not have the same attention in a 30-minute timeframe at the other school like she has currently at Goldfish Swim School – Garden City.

In August, during our family vacation to Morocco, we were able to see what our daughter has learned with just a few swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School under her belt. Trust me, she was not afraid to literally jump in pools and even asked to not wear her life vest. The latter did not happen because, you know, swim safety. And, we did not need any unfortunate accidents happening while on vacation. But, we do believe in enjoying life and having fun, so with her dad’s assistance she jumped in every single pool at each hotel we stayed, and swam and played with confidence.  We are happy that the swimming lessons she is taking allow her to demonstrate real progress, and she is rewarded for it, too!

Goldfish Swim School rewards progress with a ribbon that indicates what was mastered.  Over the last few weeks our daughter has earned a burgundy ribbon for mastering how to roll over, and a green ribbon for being able to swim independently. Being able to roll over was something she had to work on a lot since the school expects you to roll over 180 degrees onto your back instead of a full roll, and she consistently did the latter, until a few lessons ago. Now that she can roll over and swim independently, we hope the next step is her moving up to Glider 2.

    This is so awesome! I know she’s even prouder of herself. I wish they had something around here like this. My plan is to enroll my g-babies into swimming glass mid-spring. Thanks so much for sharing. There’s nothing like seeing that smile on their faces.

  • This looks great!! I wish there was one a bit closer to me. The closest is over an hour away. I would love to get all my Kiddies signed up for this! Swimming is such an important skill.

  • Look at the little swimmer. I think swimming lessons are important there is always a pool so it would be a good skill for any kid to know

  • Swimming success looks SO good on little ones! I love seeing their faces when they realize that they’ve hit an important milestone. I also love that so many more families are getting out and making sure that their children can swim before hitting high school or college.

  • This is a much needed reminder. I put my oldest in lessons when he was 6. He is now a solid swimmer. I need to put my 5 year old in lessons. I wish they had this place in my area.

  • Eva

    I absolutely love this! I bet she has a great sense of accomplishment now that she can hold her own in the water. Congrats to her!

  • Kasi Perkins

    Congrats to your little one! Swim lessons at an early age is so important!

  • Crystal Lewis

    I got my older two swimming lessons, but slacked on getting my younger two. I need to look into it.


    Dad was the toughest to buy holiday gifts for. Because he was the dad who never wants anything. But last time I somehow got him this keepsake journal that he could use to highlight his passions, childhood memories, old photos and more for generations.

  • Nikki Ansari

    I’ve been debating about getting my youngest swim lesson, thank you for the review. We have a Goldfish Swim School, I’m excited to check it out.

  • Crystal Nicole

    This was super adorable! Swimming lessons are great!

  • This is so cute
    Swimming is one thing I wished I knew how to do
    I should take classes too.

  • That’s Chelsea

    This was too cute! Kudos to you for enrolling your daughter in swim lessons early on. I started my swim lessons around her age and it really changed my life for the better.

  • Sheena Steward

    This is awesome! Congrats to your daughter for getting her two ribbons. I love that she’s fearless in the water and jumped in every pool on vacation lol. She’s on her way to medals.

  • The toughest person would be my SO. After reviving his BF a sweater I purchased him in HS, I refused to buy him another gift without prior knowledge of what he prefers. He wore it once!
