Keeping class sizes small to provide personal attention to all students, teachers train four to six kids ages 3 months and older. During lessons tiered by age and skill, they split equal time between specific strokes and water-safety education, teaching lessons in a heated indoor pool within the Spring Hill Suites Chicago Schaumburg Hotel. The hotel is located between Woodfield Mall and I-90, about one block from IKEA. View the class schedule.<p>
British Swim School
Rita Goldberg is as at home in the water as she is in the classroom. She made a career as one of Britain’s national swimmers before retiring to a life in education. As a teacher, she noticed a lack of resources for kids to learn water-safety and swimming techniques, so she decided to found the British Swim School in Manchester, England. As Rita refined her curriculum, her business expanded, eventually coming to the United States.
Across the country, British Swim School's 30-minute one-on-one sessions and small-group lessons, capped at six swimmers, elucidate essential techniques for water safety and the importance of speaking fluent manatee. Swimboree (ages 3 months–3 years with parents) and Young Minnows sessions (ages 1–3 years without parents) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly and little-known mountain-goat flail. Certain British Swim School classes require parents to participate in the water or to supervise from the pool deck, and adults-only lessons allow grown-ups to refine their own abilities without the supervision of a toddler.
