"My 5 year old daughter was not afraid of the water, but was very timid about trying to swim and refused to put her face in the water. I enrolled her in two summer sessions at LSS and by the end of the 1st session she was moving through the water on her own with her head fully submerged! The great teachers, great student:teacher ratios and lessons in deep water made all the difference for her."

"Our kids learned so much and gained confidence that they weren't getting with our trips to the pool. What a great experience!"

"Our daughter had taken private one-on-one swim lessons for several previous summers. We were a little uncertain if she was ready for group lessons. However, the high ratio of adults to students made this the perfect transition from one-on-one lessons to group lessons. We will continue next summer!"

"As a parent and an early childhood educator, I was looking for a developmentally appropriate swimming experience for my child. My four year old was afraid to get his hair washed and now willingly does it himself. It has completely changed our visits to the swimming pool. The teachers are truly child-centered, firm but always positive and fun. He is not swimming but comfortable playing in the water and that is more than I expected in only a few months. The class size was perfect and price was right for the quality of experience we received. We are hoping they will continue the lessons into the fall so he can continue learning and become more confident."

"Lawrence Swim School has done a wonderful job with teaching my daughters to swim.  We have participated in their lessons for the past ten summers, starting when my oldest daughter was three years old.  She "graduated" from swimming lessons after accomplishing all the skills and she is a very good swimmer because of Lawrence Swim School.  My youngest daughter is very close to accomplishing all her swimming skills at Lawrence Swim School and she is also a good swimmer.  The instructors are awesome and they really care about teaching each individual swimmer.  We have especially loved the 3 to 1 student to teacher ratio.  My girls have always looked forward to their summer swimming lessons!"

"My 4 yr-old was very shy of getting in the water and 'wasn't going to go to swim lessons.' His instructor was patient and kind and helped him ease into the lesson. In a couple of days he couldn't wait to get to swimming lessons to swim with his teacher! Nice job- thank you!"

"My coach was really cool!  She swims for UConn.  She taught me a lot.  My favorite stroke is the breastroke but I'm fastest at freestyle.  Coach Patrick is funny and always gives me high fives."

"We first learned about Lawrence Swim School from a friend, whose child learned to swim there.  Our daughter was 4 years old and afraid to get her face wet.  The instructors  (we took two sessions) were both experienced swimmers.  The class size was small (3 students).  By the end of the sessions, my daughter was blowing bubbles, floating on her back, and going down the slide into the pool!  She is no longer afraid of getting her face wet!  I was impressed with the ability of the instructors to push and encourage each student to their personal skill level, without traumatizing them. My daughter enjoyed lessons so much that she can't wait for them to start this summer!"

"I keep coming back to swim school each summer because I think swimming is a vital skill that everyone should learn. Swimming has had such a huge impact on my life and I always thought teaching swim lessons was a great way to continue that. Whether the kids are just there to learn the basics, or if they are seeking to one day become the next big swim star, swimming is a life skill that is crucial and I've always loved the fact that I can be a part of that."

"Since lessons my son has started using the language his swim instructor used when he practices what he learned at the pool. His confidence in the water has improved and he is looking forward to another great session of lessons soon!"
