Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Alexandria

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most young children drown in Alexandria? Sadly, the answer is 'in their own swimming pool'. For this reason, our lessons prioritize the 'Sunsational Safety Sequence': turning around and reaching the side of the pool after an accidental fall into the water. We make that sequence the heart of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for students ages 3 and older.

Convenient Scheduling

Trying to fit kids into group lessons can often feel like fitting a square peg into a round hole! With Sunsational, you set the day of the week and the time that is the best fit for you. Weekdays before lunch? Weekend afternoons? Multiple children in back-to-back lessons three days a week? Absolutely!

Customized Lesson Plans

Most swim lessons take a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction, but Sunsational lessons are personalized for each swimmer. Our teachers recognize and honor individual needs, differences, and strengths, and their one-on-one lessons are tailored to help your child progress in the way that is most effective for them.

Sunsational Client Reviews

We bought a new house with a pool in the back yard and immediately recognized the need to "waterproof" our children. My 2 1/2 year old daughter was afraid to put her face anywhere near the water, even in the tub, but then along came Carla Gregor. Arleigh immediately felt as ease in the water with Carla and began to put her face in the water, blowing bubbles and retrieving diving toys. By the end of the summer she could swim across the pool all by herself, albeit with a float vest. I don't know where we would be without Carla Gregor! Thanks Sunsational Swim School and thanks Carla!!
Brynn is absolutely exceptional - she is so knowledgeable about teaching young kids to swim, which means she knows a lot about what is possible and also what is beyond their age (physical and mental) capacity. We are so happy we chose to teach our kids to swim through this program. No doubt in my mind that the one-on-one interaction, without distractions, is the reason behind our 4 year old learning to swim in two weeks (with a lot of lessons and practice). our teacher, Brynn, is a young professional who just happens to love teaching young ones to swim - she is a high achiever, and trustworthy.
Our two and a half year old daughter always loved the water, but learning to swim from mommy and daddy was more of a game than developing a new skill set. Because of this, we contacted Sunsational Swim School in an attempt to transfer authority to a private swim instructor in the hopes our daughter would respond better to a new friend/teacher. After some delays in being assigned an instructor, we were finally paired with Ms. Emily. Our daughter immediately connected with Ms. Emily and by the second lesson was blowing bubbles in the pool - an amazing feat considering we couldn't even motivate her to get her face wet! Always a cautious girl, the learning has been slow, but steady and through n...

I'm a young professional that has been in the business of aquatics for most of my life and have taught swim lessons for over 15 years. I have taught all skill levels and ages; from infants that have never floated to adults wanting to learn competitive strokes. I love to help people over overcome their fears and insecurities and develop their love for the water. Besides my years of swim lessons, I was also a highly competitive swimmer when I was younger and still swim to keep myself active.
