aquachild Aquatic Enrichment Program Teaching Kids Comprehensive Survival Swimming Skills



At aquachild, we offer a unique and effective approach to swimming lessons.

Our method fosters independence and confidence, which is vital to your children learning to swim. Through a process of repetition and consistency, your children will learn to swim head down, roll onto  his or her  back to rest and breathe, and then roll back over to swim.

The final result of our program is a happy and confident swimmer.

  • Our program is designed to not only teach swimming but survival skills as well.
  • Your infant or child will be able to roll over into a survival float.
  • Lessons are one-on-one, custom designed for your child’s physical and emotional needs.

There is no substitution for diligent adult supervision when it comes to your child’s safety. However, we offer a unique and comprehensive survival-swimming program that helps add an additional layer of protection for your child in the event of an accident. These lessons are just the beginning to a lifetime of safety and fun in the water. Practice is essential to a child's skill retention and progression.There is no such thing as being "drown proof". Results are not guaranteed. 

Layers of Protection:

1. Adult supervision. Always watch children in and around water.

2. Install a safety fence and door alarms around pools and ponds.

3. Keep cell phone or cordless phone pool side for emergency use.

4. Enroll children in swimming lessons that teach survival skills.

5. Learn CPR


On August 23, 2007, after returning home from a beautiful family trip to Disney, our then four year old daughter had a near drowning accident in our backyard pool. We have a pool fence and there were many adults around in the yard. She was in the middle of learning how to swim with just the ordinary swim lessons that summer. We Are Extremely thankful and lucky to still have her in our life, however she did suffer a severe amount of brain damage and still remains in a coma with us at home. People take it for granted and think that this could never happen to my child. We thought the same. Most people will think, OH, if my child will fall in, I will hear it. Well, we can say drowning is what they call a "silent killer". Nobody heard my daughter when her accident happened. Statistically most drownings will occur between one year to five years of age. Two years went by and we received a flier from our older children's school about a swim program called "Aqua Child". We enrolled our then two year old daughter in the program. A few weeks later we were so impressed with the swimming and survival skills she learned. Brian, we can't thank you enough for doing such a wonderful job teaching our daughter to swim and survive in the water. It made a whole world of a difference and gave us peace of mind knowing that she didn't just have the swimming skills but survival as well. Today she is four years old and swims like a fish. Scotty, we couldn't wait to enroll our youngest daughter who is now ten months old in your program. She is on her fifth week and we can't believe she knows how to swim before walking. Thank you Scotty for teaching her the swimming and survival skills that is so very important to know. Thank you for having the patience to teach such a young child. We are looking forward to seeing her graduate soon.

Brian and Scotty are amazing swim instructors. Their knowledge and patience is incredible. If anyone wonders is this the right way to teach my child how to swim, Well we have to strongly say stop wondering and sign up today. This is the best and we think only way people should teach their children how to swim. It can really help to save lives. As a matter of fact we have a friend that came here with her kids to teach them to swim. She had an encounter with one of them and the skills they learned here help to save their life. The kid fell into a pool and was found lying floating on their back waiting for help to arrive.

Thanks again Brain and Scotty for teaching our children the skills they know and for making their learning experience a whole lot of fun.
