About Move Water Swim

Move Water Swim is an intensive, self-developed swim program founded in teaching swim skills through play and systematic instruction. The instructors believe that all children can learn to swim. The program is comprised of seven distinct levels of instructions, building from Parent & Me to Junior Lifesaving. Teaching strategies include verbal instruction, teacher and peer modeling, small teacher to child ratios, and free play!
