Learning to swim, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Outfit your little ones for aqua play with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get 10 group swim lessons with registration fee included at Sunshine Swim School (a $135 value).
For 41 years, Sunshine Swim School’s certified instructors have been coaxing the sea legs out of bipeds with 13 levels of swim instruction. Swimmers can test the buoyancy of baby chub with parents by their side in the Platypus (for ages 6–12 months), Turtle (for ages 13–21 months), and Mudskipper classes (for ages 22–30 months), where children learn to blow bubbles, froggy dive, and yodel underwater. Sunshine's instructors congregate older kids into classes no larger than four so that they can master various strokes and personal survival skills. Sunshine Swim School's watery classrooms are kept at 90 degrees—the exact temperature at which dorsal fins emerge from human backs—and classes last 25 minutes. All instructors are certified in CPR, first aid, and lifeguarding and keep parents abreast of their children’s progress after each class.
