Mompreneur Vs. The Kid learning how to swim –
How Gold Fish Swim School made my life easier
Hi, There Moms! I am finally back to blogging, and I couldn’t be more excited. The last nine months have been crazy, and I will be telling you all about it weekly HERE on my blog!
Over the summer I worked so hard that Ryann (my 7-year-old daughter if you forgot lol) didn’t get a chance to take advantage of many activities and I felt super bad. One of the main goals I had for Ryann was learning how to swim. I called tons of places near my home, but none of them had a schedule that would be conducive to my schedule. I decided to put it on the back burner until I decided to look beyond my 10-mile radius.
Thank God I did because I found the BEST swim school for her, Goldfish Swim School (GFSS). Now we aren’t strangers to Goldfish Swim School in Owings Mills, Maryland. When they first opened in our area Ryann was the first birthday party there. It was a little far from our home, but we LOVED it there. After checking out their schedule (which is so convenient for anyone) and seeing they offer classes seven days a week I knew that this is where we needed to be! Being a mom and entrepreneur already keeps me busy, but thanks to Goldfish Swim School flexible schedule taking her to classes isn’t a burden anymore.
Thus far Ryann has been doing an amazing job with the staff. One reason I love GFSS is that it is super kid friendly. From the cute changing rooms to the blow dry station, they have thought of everything for a kid. The class sizes are small, so it is really easy for the teacher to understand the habits of the children and help them learn the technique. Since the class sizes are no more than four children per instructor, the kids receive the personalized attention they need to advance their learning.
I love the fact that the facility is indoor and they offer year-round classes. The pools are kept at 90 degrees to make the water inviting and comfortable for kids and parents. To be honest, being warm when swimming is important to me, I hate cold water so knowing she won’t be super cold while swimming comforts me.
Thus far Ryann has learned some cool techniques and is working on getting comfortable with the water in her (she hates water in her face lol). The staff has been good with teaching her the proper techniques to going under water, and I look forward to seeing her progress over the next few months.
Ryann learning how to swim is much bigger than it just being a trend. I travel a lot for work (mostly in warm places), and I love taking her with me. As we visit different places and enjoy the amenities, it is important to me that she is comfortable in the pool while I am working from the sideline. Over 3K people die each year from drowning, and with safety techniques, we can reduce this number. A key part of Goldfish Swim School curriculum is teaching safety skills to kids between 4 months and 13 years old and they practice these safety skills each week. It is comforting to know Ryann is in good hands and will be a great swimmer soon.
I look forward to sharing her journey with you 🙂
