A Letter from Our Director
Our Mission: To effectively teach children how to survive falls into the water, return to the side, and have fun swimming for life!
Dear Potential Clients of Happy Swimmers,
Since we’re new to each other, I’d like to share a little about our company’s private swimming lesson background and teaching style. We’ve been in business for 19 years, teaching children and adults in the San Fernando Valley, Westside of LA, Orange County, San Diego, San Jose, and Phoenix how to swim. This year, we’ve expanded to serve Austin, Washington DC and Honolulu metro areas as well. Our first priority is to teach children how to survive falls into the water. Once this is mastered, swim strokes are emphasized, but not before a high degree of water safety is attained. For adult learners, our intent is transforming a fear of the water to the experience of being held and supported by the water, all done with great care.
Our philosophy of teaching is simple. We teach water safety by building a loving, trusting relationship with our students, both children and adults. We don’t teach “lessons.” We don’t force learning. Our instructors are keenly aware of each student’s comfort zone. Your child will be proud to show you what they learn after each visit, and we give you ways to practice and promote even greater learning in-between the lessons.
We maintain a staff of 12-15 highly experienced, certified, and kind swim instructors in each area we serve. Most have 5-10 years lesson teaching to their credit, and have child development backgrounds. Because we believe in the importance of the relationship between teacher and student, we won’t substitute your teacher unless something unforeseen happens. Your instructor will have a professional swim lesson résumé to show you on your first meeting, and feel free to ask them ANY questions you’d like before lessons begin.
We’re members of the United States Swim School Association, a national body of integrity-based professional swim schools, and we’re fully insured. Don’t settle for less! Space books quickly for summer lessons, and instructors’ schedules are filled on a first-come-first-served basis, so for best availability of times and instructors, please plan to start lessons as soon in the season as you can.
We look forward to serving you with kindness, and beautiful results.
John Tyler, Owner
