We work with your timetable. Back-to-back lessons for siblings? No problem. Mornings for your infant and afternoons for your first-grader? Done. Alternate between your pool and your neighbors? That works, too.

Personalized Lesson Plans

Our instructors tailor lessons to meet the student’s needs. One-on-one attention means fewer distractions and more progress. Perfect for everyone from fearful students to lap swimmers.

There are not enough good things I can say about Sunsational my son came out swimming perfectly and he is water safe and ready for technique. Ivanna Ames is the best teacher she was so patient and dedicated and made it so fun. I am going to continue with her for all my swim classes.- Fabiola C.
When our daughters swim school was canceled due to the pandemic we searched for private swim lessons. We were matched with Megan & got started right away. Our daughter adores Megan, she is kind, patient, skilled, and we are only 1/2 way through our package & we can already see major progress! We are SO happy with our choice to go with Sunsational Swim school!!

Tristan is an incredible swim teacher. I can say this easily as I have had several. He is the perfect combination of calm, encouraging and knowledgeable. He created a very comfortable atmosphere to learn and his enthusiasm and positivity where genuine. He is incredibly patient and that was definitely the reason I got to learn as much from him as I did. :)

We had a wonderful experience this month with James as our instructor for 3 kids, ages 6, 4, and 3. We booked the 12 lesson package with the Learn-to-Swim guarantee because our goal was to get them water safe by the end of the lessons. James was really great with all 3 kids and had them progressing by the time our lessons were over. My 4 year old went from "I'm not going to put my face in the water" on Day 1 to wearing her goggles, jumping into the water by herself, and swimming back to the wall sometime in the last 6 lessons! We were happy with the progress all 3 kids made and highly recommend James!

Our instructor was Kimberly and we absolutely loved her! Our 3 year old enjoyed his swim lessons and is super comfortable in the water, swimming and getting in and out the pool. Kimberly has a great approach for such group age and my son couldn't wait to swim with his friend Kim! I highly recommend Kimberly for your child's swim classes.

KIMBERLY D. has been a wonderful instructor to work with. She corresponds with me frequently, is easy to schedule lessons with, and, is always on time. We have had a few schedule changes and KIMBERLY has accommodated us very well. Kimberly is persistent, kind, patient, entertaining and a fabulous teacher. She is teaching our "19 month old" to be water safe, and, after 6 lessons the concept of holding onto the coping of the pool and moving sideways to the steps or climb out of the pool on her own is sinking in. Plus, I can't say enough about Sunsational Swim School, so easy to work with, great staff!!!!! Thank you Sunsational for sending us KIMBERLY!!!!! You truly are LIFE SAVER

This service, and our instructor Emily C. specifically, has been an absolute game changer for our 5yo son, Jack. After just a couple of lessons, Jack was totally comfortable floating by himself and treading water in the pool - a couple lessons after that and the kid is swimming from the shallow end to the deep end (30ft away) all by himself! His confidence is amazing to see and he now plays Marco Polo in the deep end with his older brother and joins the big boy diving games! We could not be happier with the Sunsational Swim School as well as Emily's fantastic attitude and instructor skills.

Alex is AMAZING! Within a week my son has become more confident in the water, willing to float on his back and put his face under water. After two weeks he is can hold his breath and swim under water with very little help. He also knows how to crab crawl along the edge of the pool and how to climb out all by himself at any point in the pool. Alex teaches pool safety first, then works on technique. She is exactly what we were looking for in a swim instructor!

Heydi is the best swimming instructor we've ever had. She has a keen understanding of the strokes and a great instinct of the building blocks of swimming. She is calm and encouraging and got my 11 year old interested again in swimming lessons. My seven year old skipped to the pool knowing she was coming! He loved his lessons with Heydi! And let's just say, that's not how it was at other swim schools. Thanks Heydi for putting the joy back into swimming for my children!
