At Goldfish Swim School, we are proud to offer state of the art aquatic facilities dedicated entirely to indoor swim classes and programs for children 4 months and up. Below, you will find a little bit about the history of Goldfish Swim School as well as our Core Values and Core Focus. Enjoy and we look forward to seeing you in the pool!
The company’s idea was formed when Co-Founder, Jenny McCuiston, realized the demand for quality swim instruction after teaching swim lessons at a local swim club in the Summer of 2000. She became increasingly busy with customers, and her business grew steadily throughout the Summer. Then, in the Summer of 2004, Jenny decided to teach swim lessons at a nearby Country Club. Jenny, again, realized the great need for quality swim instruction as she regularly accumulated a waiting list and her clientele grew to record-breaking numbers for the club by Summer’s end.
So, with the help of her husband Chris, Co-Founder of Goldfish Swim School, they began researching the learn to swim industry in late 2004. They traveled the country learning from other swim school owners, traveled to several swim school conferences and began to develop their business plan. In early 2005, Jenny created the proprietary curriculum that they still use, and developed their rustic beach house decor, all from the kitchen of their home.
Goldfish Swim School was founded on the core belief that aquatic safety and skills are invaluable life lessons. At Goldfish, infants and children through 12 years of age learn to swim with a staff that is dedicated to top-quality swim instruction. Our state-of-the-art facility and swim programs allow us to teach children the necessary swim and safety skills year round. Classes take place indoors in a warm, welcoming environment with fun tropical décor and child-friendly features. With swim instruction as our main focus, we’re able to be a little more creative…and a whole lot better!
