December 04th, 2017 Learn to Swim

Knowing that your child is safe in and around the water is a priority for many parents, and swim lessons become a common part of many childhoods to fulfill this need. But how long should children stay in lessons? While there is no magic number, as each child is an individual with different emotional and developmental abilities, we have provided some advantages to continuing swim lessons beyond learning just the basics. In addition, you’ll find information on programs that can help students continue to strengthen skill sets that you may not have known about.



FRANCHISE OVERVIEW:  A swim school with over a decade of proven success and the experience of over five million swimming lessons, SafeSplash’s focus is providing excellence and unexpected value to our franchisees and customers at every turn.

Susan Wainscott, Swimtastic Swim School’s Founder and CEO, brings to you an extensive background in human resources, office management and teaching swimming, along with experience as a mom and a B.S. in Education. Her love of children and the water has led her to own and operate two schools in the Waukesha and Fox Cities areas. Susan and her husband, Barrett, have partnered with SafeSplash Swim Schools, where the Swimtastic and SafeSplash brands can help lead others in franchising.

Each Swimtastic location provides the same consistent Swimtastic experience – classes to meet the parent’s schedule and fun for the children while they learn to swim.
