Our daughter started swimming lessons yesterday, Tuesday, 23 August 2011 at the Long Center in Clearwater, FL. She loved it! And she did very well.
The teacher is going to see about bumping her from level 1 to a level 2 class (pending availability) as he said she’s already ready for that. The last month of taking her in the pool every other day has resulted in her being very comfortable in the water. She can already swim across the pool (width-wise) by herself and also swims underwater most of the time. Before we moved to this house with a pool, she was still super clingy when in the water, even with a flotation suit on. Her teacher, Wayne, seems very nice.
