Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Winnetka

Our Priority Is Water Safety

The majority of child drownings happen when they are unable to safely exit the water after a fall into the water. For this reason, our Winnetka swim lessons emphasize teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the side.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to plan your infant?s lessons before lunchtime? Definitely! What about an evening session for a reluctant adult that?s always wanted to learn to swim? We can do that! The time of day that best fits your busy life is a great time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our teachers use gentle encouragement and a progressive approach to plan lessons to meet each swimmer?s unique needs and rapidly learn the skills needed to be safer in and around the water. We?ve seen such consistent results with our program that we offer a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

Your life often feels like it?s on fast-forward, right? Who wants to drive across Winnetka in order to get to overfilled swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite local pool?
