Sunsational Swim School is a leading provider of swimming lessons for children and has thousands of swim instructors in cities throughout the United States. We offer a unique service to most other swim schools in that we offer kids swim lessons in your own home or community pool. We want your child’s swimming lessons to be as convenient as possible for you, while at the same time providing a tailored private service.
The aim of our company is to offer swimming lessons for kids that get results fast. Our lessons move at the pace that our students are comfortable with, but our talented instructors have years of experience in developing your child’s abilities over a short period of time. Without the noise and distractions of group lessons, and with competitively priced child swimming lessons, Sunsational Swim School is the easy choice.
Here’s what the parents of our talented newbie swimmers had to say about their kids swim lessons with the Sunsational team:
“My girls (6 & 7) were scared of water since they were babies, even the shower water accidentally splashed into their eyes and could make them cry for awhile. They incredibly overcame with their fears in the FIRST lesson! It was just amazing to me!!! Today was the last lesson they had with Ms. Linda. My older daughter is already able to swim like a mermaid across the shallow side of the pool to the 7 ft. deep side.”
“My 6 year old was really terrified to swim despite my many attempts to teach him and put him in lessons since he was 2 years old. In only 6 swim lessons my son has gone from absolutely refusing to swim without a flotation device to swimming completely on his own, getting down to the bottom of the pool to pick up diving rings and is loving it! He will stay in the water for hours at a time now. His confidence and self esteem are through the roof and we are all so proud of him!”
“Our daughter's instructor Alexis was great! My 9 year old still hadn't learned to swim and was afraid of getting her head wet but by the end of our 12 classes she was jumping in the deep end of the pool and swimming!” Andrea Kelly Monrovia, CA
“Jennifer W. was the swim instructor for Natalie, an eight-year-old. In 12 lessons, Jennifer was able to teach Natalie breaststroke, freestyle, backstroke and most of the butterfly. Natalie knew none of those strokes at beginning of summer. Natalie's self esteem seems to have skyrocketed because of the confidence she gained!” Diane S. Buena Park, CA
Our #1 Priority: Water Safety for Your Child
In our program, children learn to swim in a safe and positive environment. Making safety a priority, our instructors teach young swimmers how to swim back to the wall after an accidental fall in the water, how to pull themselves out of the water and how to master breathing, paddling and kicking in order to swim to safety.
A Gentle and Step-by-Step Method
Our progressive step-by-step method makes learning easy and fun, and fear tactics or force are never a part of our curriculum. Private lessons ensure that children progress at their own pace, and move on only after they’re ready for a bigger challenge. The ability to personalize lessons gives our instructors the chance to help your child develop skills, as well as conquer fear or self-doubt.
Learn to Swim – That’s Our Guarantee
We Guarantee that your child aged 3 year or older will, at minimum, learn to swim back to the wall after a jump into the water in 12 Private Swim Lessons, or the subsequent lessons required to meet our guarantee are free. Our 12 lesson guarantee was initiated to ensure that our students will, at minimum, learn the important water safety skills necessary to help them to recover if they were to fall into a pool or body of water. These life saving skills are very important to learn at a young age because drowning is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1-14 and most of these drownings occur in a pool.
Convenient Scheduling – We Come to You!
Remember, because our instructors will come to you, and work around your schedule, our lessons are convenient, and offer busy families the flexibility they need to make the most of swim time.
Highly Experienced Instructors
Our swim instructors come to you highly trained and experienced, with a background that includes a minimum of two years teaching experience. In addition, they are Red Cross Lifeguard and/or Water Safety Instructor certified, CPR/First Aid trained and have a passion for working with children. With Sunsational Swim, you know your child is in the hands of a dedicated teacher and instructor. In addition, all of our instructors are background checked.
Sunsational Swim Skills
As lessons are private or semi-private we do not have "levels" but instead a skill progression chart that allows children to develop swim and water safety skills at their own pace in a progressive manner.
Every child has different abilities and progresses through swim skills at a different pace but on average most children will achieve the following skill sets in 12 Private Swim Lessons.
Our 12 lesson guarantee for ages 3+ entails that the child will learn to orient themselves and swim back to the wall after a jump or instructor drop into the water and is part of our goal of creating "safer swimmers" and doing our part to reduce childhood drownings; the leading cause of unintentional injury-related death in America.
