Welcome to British Swim School, where learning and swim safety go hand in hand. For over 30 years swim instructors at British Swim Schools have been teaching kids water safety and the importance of back floating to children as young as 3 months old.
Drowning is the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age. Since swimming lessons are a vital part of your children’s development, British Swim School offers swim lessons for toddlers. Stroke improvement classes are offered for our more advanced swimmers, as well as a full range of instruction for adults.
The back float is considered the most important water survival skill of all because it enables all swimmers to rest, breathe and call for help. This alleviates the “silent” danger of floating face down.
British Swim School owner, Rita Goldberg, has worked continuously to develop, improve and fine-tune these methods resulting in the ability to teach even the youngest of babies to roll over on their backs to float.
Our teaching is gradual, gentle and an overall fun process.
This class introduces infants to the water for the first time through slow, gentle, and fun instruction. This parent-assisted class will educate the parent on how to swim safely with their child.
Swimboree (3 to 36 months with parent: Group – Maximum 6 children)
