While we initially had issues with finding an instructor that was a good fit for our toddler, we did eventually find one. Sunsational was very helpful and worked with us to find a the right instructor. Abbie has been amazing. Our son really enjoys his lessons with her and has made great improvements. He is 16 months old and is kicking, going under water, and loving the water. Abbie is so kind and easy going. She doesn't force our son to do anything that makes him uncomfortable. She has been very flexible with scheduling and making changes. Even during our lessons if T is getting fussy, she understands and we end the lesson a few minutes or so early. I highly recommend this company for swim lessons. Thank you Abbie and Sunsational!

Our instructor Miss Shelley was amazing! She was so great with my son and his little cousin and before we knew it both of the kiddos were actually swimming across the pool - neither had done so before and were scared of putting their heads underwater until she showed up. She's amazing with kids and brings so much expertise to the pool. We will definitely sign up for more lessons with her next summer!

Thank you Sunsational! My daughter loved her swim lessons with Phylicia. She looked forward to her lesson each week and we saw so much progress after each lesson. She dives to the bottom of the pool, retrieves rings, swins across the pool and most importantly she confident and safe in the pool now.

Cole has been nothing short of amazing over the last 2 months. He is by far the best children's swim instructor we've seen - he keeps a fastpace, which keeps the kids interested and attentive. He's supportive, encouraging and has made outstanding progress with both of our kids. He took our 5 year old from being afraid to put her head under water in the first lesson to swimming free-style w/ side breath the length of the pool. And, he took our 2 year old from being deathly afraid of the pool to safely getting in and out the side of the pool on his own, 'monkey' scaling the side of the pool & blowing bubbles. We are most grateful for having had the opportunity to work with such a knowledgeable and kind instructor!

I grew up on the coast of Texas. I began teaching private swimming lessons in high school in our backyard pool. This became my Summer job and has continued into adulthood. I am a swimmer and run a 1st Grade Swim program every Spring with the East Communities YMCA Project Safe Program. Water has played a large role in my life and my art, and I was even featured in a short news segment for my artwork: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M43tzwJ9cg&list=UU8PJtKDIDj1dPHfR7T_32ZQ&feature=c4-overview
