we believe swimming is a life skill®.

While you may be hesitant to enroll your child in swim lessons before they’re able to walk, there are so many benefits to early swimming instruction and baby aquatics! For starters, swimming lessons can reduce the risk of accidental childhood drowning by 88%. Since drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under 4, it makes sense to provide opportunities for your child to learn water safety. 

Early education also makes it easy to give your child a positive experience with swimming, right from the beginning. Kids who get their feet wet early in life tend to have less fear and apprehension around water. Swimming improves confidence in other ways, too. Infant and toddler swim classes include water play, fun songs and close contact with mom, dad or another trusted caregiver. These elements, plus the joy of learning a new skill, create a supportive and social group environment that fosters self-confidence.

When your child learns how to swim with us, they benefit from a curriculum that has been tested and proven over 12 million times in SafeSplash swim schools across the country. We even offer rolling start dates, which means you can enroll in infant swimming lessons and toddler swimming lessons at any time during the year.

When should my toddler or baby start swimming lessons?

Infants as young as 6 months old can benefit  from group swimming lessons, and SafeSplash’s infant and toddler swim classes are designed for kids ages 6 months to 3 years old. In our ParentTot classes you’ll be in the pool with your kiddo to support, soothe and cheer them on the entire time. 

When your child is ready for some independence (ages 2 years and up), our Toddler Transition class offers a supportive learn to swim experience with our attentive instructors, while parents watch poolside or from our lobby viewing area.

What are Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) lessons?

We are sometimes asked what ISR lessons are and if we teach infant self rescue. While water safety skills are our first priority for all swimmers, our curriculum does not include the ISR philosophy. We believe swimmers need to develop swim skills that not only allow them to float, but also move themselves to safety as confident, efficient swimmers. Having a correct, efficient swim stroke enables swimmers to move themselves out of potentially dangerous situations. 

The ISR philosophy promotes “self-rescue” swimming skills with various methods of instruction based on the child’s age. For example, survival swimming for babies might include learning how to roll onto their backs to rest through repeated exposure of being forced underwater. While we can all agree that learning to float is an important water safety skill, we differ in our approach to teaching, and experts have yet to prove that the ISR method is a more effective teaching approach. 

Our philosophy in teaching water safety skills includes an environment where all swimmers learn to love and respect the water while learning fundamental swim skills. At SafeSplash Aurora (Southlands Mall), we believe that you can’t effectively teach traumatized kiddos who fear water. When thinking about ISR and other toddler survival swimming programs, we urge you to do extensive research to determine if they are the right fit for your family.

Our Water Safety Curriculum

When it comes to choosing swimming lessons for your kiddos, we know you have plenty of options. We also know exactly what young swimmers and their families need to have the best experience possible. Our warm water pools and small class sizes help SafeSplash stand out, but it’s our proven curriculum that ensures your child learns new skills while having a blast. 

The lesson plans our Aurora (Southlands Mall) location uses were developed by a team of experienced and passionate world-class swimmers. From infancy to toddlerhood and beyond, our progressive curriculum empowers your child to become a stronger swimmer. Start with SafeSplash during your child’s early years, and watch your little swimmer grow into a strong and confident lifelong lover of water.

Infant Swim Lessons

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

We offer infant and toddler swim lessons as early as 6 months of age to help build confidence and get your infant comfortable in the water. Our small ParentTot classes are a great way for parents to bond and socialize with their kiddos while teaching vital water safety skills like breath control, floating and kicking. We also offer Toddler Transition classes for kiddos ages 18-36 months. Parents join their swimmers poolside until they are ready to transition to a small group class without a parent nearby. Both classes focus on foundational water safety skills as well as developing a comfort in the water, which are crucial in developing swimming skills.

Children’s Swim Lessons

Children’s Swim Lessons

We offer a variety of swim lesson programs for children of all ages and levels. Whether your child is just starting to get comfortable in the water or moving on to more advanced techniques we have you covered. Our progressive curriculum starts with foundational skills in beginner level classes and develops swimmers to be advanced swimmers. Whether your goal is basic water safety skills or competing at an elite level, our program can take your child from bubbles to butterfly(r). We offer a variety of class types from small group classes featuring a 4:1 student to teacher ratio to semi-private and private lessons.

Adult Swim Lessons

Adult Swim Lessons

Whether you are just starting out, overcoming a fear of water or you are looking to refine your swim skills, our program gives adult swimmers at every level the opportunity to improve their skills. We offer a variety of class types for adults from small group classes to semi-private and private lessons. It’s never too late to learn this critical life skill. Our passionate instructors can help you overcome your fear and open the opportunity of enjoying the water.

Private Lessons

PRIVATE & SEMI-PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Our private swim lessons allow swimmers of all ages and levels to progress through our curriculum at their own pace with one of our certified swim instructors. Each 30 minute class will be customized around mastering the skills to become a better, stronger, safer swimmer. Private and semi-private lessons (two swimmers with one instructor) are great options if you are looking for more time focused on your individual swimmer or siblings wanting to be in the same class.

Special Needs Swim Lessons

SPECIAL NEEDS SWIM LESSONS

Swimming is a life skill for all and it can also have tremendous therapeutic benefits. Being in water can soothe sensory overload, provide relief from physical discomfort, and provide students with a sense of independence. In addition to teaching water safety skills, swimming lessons can also improve balance, coordination, strength, and range of motion. At SafeSplash Swim School we have a team of certified instructors with various training and experience in working with students with special or unique needs. We encourage meeting with you and your swimmer prior to starting lessons to discuss your goals and develop a customized teaching plan that meets the needs of your family.

Swim Camps & Clinics

SWIM CAMPS & CLINICS

Our swim camps are perfect for swimmers looking to jump start their skills by swimming with us on a more frequent basis. Lesson frequency and consistency (along with quality instruction and a world class swim curriculum) is a key element in progressing a student’s swimming ability. Our swim camps provide lessons multiple times per week and are typically 1 to 3 weeks in duration. We also offer stroke clinics where we focus on specific stroke techniques to refine our student’s skills.

Swim Team Prep

SWIM TEAM PREP

The SafeSplash Wave® program is an endurance, strength, and swim team prep program that takes swimmers who already have knowledge of the competitive swimming strokes and want to refine their swimming skills. Our Wave program is broken up into swimmer groups based on swimmer ability, physical conditioning and current knowledge of the strokes in accordance to USA Swimming standards and our SafeSplash curriculum. Each session includes a set workout with an out of water coach whose primary goal is to mimic the experience one would have on a recreational swim team.

Family Open Swim

Family Open Swim

Our family open swim is a great time to practice swimming skills outside of lessons and have fun with the whole family. Our warm water pools make for a great way to spend the day splashing around and staying active. Practicing water safety and swim skills on a more frequent basis is a key to success in learning to swim. Plus, it’s simply fun!
