Waterbabies Swim School Rave Reviews

Yelp - May 2011

My 3 year old daughter is finishing up her first session of swim lessons at Water Babies with Miss Vanessa.  Ever seen the child screaming and crying through an entire lesson?  That's typically my child, but not this time.  Vanessa immediately gained rapport and trust with my child.  She talked her through everything so there were no surprises.  Although she pushed to ensure she was learning, she didn't push to the point of breakdown.  My child actually left the lesson smiling and excited to get piece of licorice.  It has been amazing to watch my daughter turn from being terrified of going underwater into a little fish.

 The school itself is clean and organized, and very family friendly.  The entire staff we encountered at Water Babies was also very nice and helpful.  Monica and Claudia assisted us with the registration and scheduling process and were really friendly.  Instructors Wendy and Karen also deserve a particular mention as they are fantastic.

 I just registered my daughter for another session of classes with Miss Vanessa & Miss Wendy.  Will have to see how things go over the next few weeks, but Vanessa and the rest of the team at Water Babies exceeded our expectations for outcomes and customer service.  Thank you, Water Babies!

Good Afternoon,

We go to Miss Wendy's swim school and my almost 3 year old is advancing so quickly with the techniques and instructions from your school.  All week long she talks about Miss Wendy and how much she loves swimming with her and the mermaids!  By far, this school is the best we've ever been to and she 's advancing like we have never seen before!  The life saving techniques that you're teaching my daughter is something I could never thank you enough for.

I am very proud to be a member of Waterbabies.  Thank you for all you do Miss Wendy!

Warm Regards,

Nicole W.

Dear Wendy & Waterbabies Staff,

Everytime I take my kids swimming strangers rave about how well they swim, this has been going on since they were about 2.5, now they are 6, 4 and 4.  We were at the beach today where my kids were swimming confidently in the ocean (with me alongside) and some people asked their ages and remarked how amazing they are in the water.  Another man called them "fish" which is what I hear all the time.  I always answer: They didn't start out as fish, they started out at Waterbabies.

I can take my kids to many other swim schools; which are more conveniently located, cheaper and private, etc. - I wouldn't even consider it.  My kids are proof that Waterbabies is the best swim school in town.  I think your methods are absolutely spot-on and I feel fortunate that you guys taught my kids to swim.  Thank you!

I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with you and your teachers.  My girls really love swimming lessons.  I have put them in a lot of activities but I have not seen them excel at anything the way they do in swim lessons with you.  Thank you very much for your amazing instruction.

We have been taking our 12 month old for a couple of months now and are very happy. Vanessa is great with kids and she and the other babies/toddlers always seem to be having fun. My little girl lights up every week when she figures out we are going to swim school. The pool is small, which is good because there is plenty of interaction. I think that they instructors are certain to give each child attention for each lesson. There is plenty of parking and a shower and changing area to use. It is not the cheapest around and they do use an auto-enrollment for the next session a month in advance. But, they have been very good at communicating and at the end of the day the most important part is that all the kids are smiling.

Thank you and Waterbabies Swim School for teaching Gavin how to be pool safe, and to swim proficiantly.  A huge thank you to Miss Vanessa who was so patient with Gavin when he first arrive on the scene.  He was not confident and so uncomfortable.  Miss Vanessa taught Gavin to be pool safe and to be confident in the water leading him to be a proficient swimmer.  Miss Vanessa is a rock Star!!

We look forward to continuing swim lessons as Alexandria learns to be pool safe and a proficient swimmer.
