Coach Nic is exactly what my grandson needed. He can be difficult. She was patient and firm which turned out to be the perfect combination! It took three lessons just to get his hair wet without a total meltdown! By the end of his lessons he was swimming underwater! All three of our grandchildren have had lessons with Sunsational Swim School. It was s great experience for all of them!

Nic was an absolutely terrific teacher to our Granddaughter!! She had her swimming in the deep end of our pool in just six lessons. She had received numerous lessons in the past with none being successful. Nic was fantastic with her, and we will be forever grateful! Thank you, Nic!

Very happy with our swim instructor Natacha from Sunsational Swim School. Due to work schedules we couldn't get our son to local group lessons, so finding this service to connect us with a local private swim instructor was an awesome find. We highly recommend... Thanks!

Mike has been exceptional! After only 2 lessons our one and a half year old son is holding his breath, blowing bubbles, and kicking his feet. He is becoming so comfortable in the water. Very happy mom! Can't wait to see how well he is doing once we're done with lessons.

Wendy is a very patient and kind instructor. She's fun as well. My daughter loves her lessons. She is very reliable! I would highly recommend her. If I could give her ten stars I would.

We got matched with Kate as an instructor and she's been awesome! She's flexible, easy-going and sweet. She's taught our two year old so much already. She's easy to get along with and most importantly she's confident. She knows what she's doing and we know our daughter is in good hands. She is gentle in her teaching but firm in making sure each session is productive. We would recommend her to anyone looking for swim lessons!

I am so glad I chose to get my about to be 2 year old swim lessons. I wasn't sure if she was ready or how she would respond and I am so glad I just went for it. Our instructor John is AMAZING. My daughter took to him immediately and he was engaging and made the lessons fun. I wasn't sure what to expect but I am blown away we bought a 12 lesson package and will do more after that if the weather is still good. I love that he comes to us it makes my daughter more comfortable and I don't have to worry about distraction. The one on one really pays for itself. Prices are totally reasonable, but you can't really put a price on safety. Definitely recommending Sunsantional to all the other moms I know. You don't have to have a pool, just access to one and you can do your kids together if you have multiple children.

Wendy, our swim instructor is awesome. She is able to work well and teach my 3-year-old autistic son. He has learned how to get in and out of the pool, get his face wet, blow bubbles, and not freak out if he gets his whole head wet. Now he is learning how to doggie paddle. Our main concern is water safety and we are well on our way to achieving that goal. Wendy is flexible and accommodating to my son's needs. We are very pleased with Wendy and would recommend her as a swim instructor.
