At Chicago Swim School, learning to swim is just the beginning. We are dedicated to providing programs that help kids build character, accept challenges, and develop confidence.

What’s next? Our foundation is a cutting-edge swim curriculum. Beginning at four months old, families start in the pool together, establishing ease in the water, learning cues and proper positioning.

Independence in the water. Beginning at age 2 1/2, children can move to group lessons. From there, the path is customized for each individual. Students are given a wristband in their assigned class level, and work to accomplish that set of swimming and safety skills. When completed, students can progress to the next level’s wristband at any time during a session.

What does this look like? When you stop by our pool, there are a few things you’ll commonly see:

A lot of smiles and laughter.
High-fives and positive encouragement.
Children eager to start class.
Instructors, deck leaders, and customer support staff communicating with parents.

A cornerstone of our process that differentiates us from other programs is providing children with an active role in their learning. We want students to not only learn to swim, but to feel confident throughout the learning process. We make agreements with each student, from always asking permission to enter the water, to attempting that difficult skill one more time before the end of class.

Because we encourage continual feedback between parents and instructors, victories can be reinforced and challenges supported. At Chicago Swim School, our goal is that every student feels like a star.

We build a team to ensure your child’s success. From the staff that greets you at the door to your instructors and deck leaders by the pool, we get to know both our students and their families.

What is the result? Families are safer around all types of water. Students complete the program confident in the water and out, with memories to last a lifetime.
