Learn to Swim at Goldfish Swim School in Norwood

If you were an engineer designing the perfect facility for teaching kids to swim, what would you do? Make the pool shallow? Fill it with warm water? Replace stuffy locker rooms with family-friendly changing options?

Those are just a few of the many kid-friendly features at the brand new Goldfish Swim School in Norwood, MA! We stopped by to check it out, and we were amazed at the ways they’ve simplified the swim lesson experience for families.

8 Things You’ll Love About Goldfish Swim School in Norwood

1A warm, shallow pool makes a big difference!

Most traditional pools are designed for lap swimmers (cool water) and divers (deep end). Goldfish’s pool is a balmy 90°F and a constant 4 feet deep throughout. It was specifically engineered for teaching young kids to swim!

2Personalized attention for your child

With no more than 4 kids per class, each child receives heaps of personal attention while learning new skills. Underwater platforms allow children to gradually progress from paddling a few feet to motoring across the entire width of the pool.

3Rinsing off is quick and easy

Navigating a crowded locker room can be tough. Goldfish has a line of showers right next to the pool, making it easy to incorporate a quick rinse into the swim lesson routine!

4Parents get a front row seat

Parents sit behind a huge panel of windows, where they can catch every moment of the swim lesson action. Just as important, kids can gain confidence by looking up and seeing mom or dad’s smiling face!

5It’s all about boosting confidence

When it comes to swimming, confidence and safety go hand in hand. Encouragement and prizes help convince young swimmers that they can truly do what they put their mind to.

6A family-friendly changing area

The open-concept changing area takes away the struggle of the locker room! Families with any type of parent/child combination can quickly grab a “changing hut”, then make use of a handy centralized hair-drying station.

7Fun, playful atmosphere

Whether waiting for a sibling or just getting comfortable being to the new place, there’s lots for kids to do and see in this beautiful, carefully planned facility.

8Helpful, friendly staff

Goldfish Swim School’s team makes scheduling and implementing your child’s lessons simple. Their “perpetual lesson” format takes away traditional 6-8 week “sessions” and instead allows for a flexible “start anytime” format that fits your family’s needs.
