The chilly winter months may not seem like the most obvious time to talk about swim lessons, but swim and water safety experts know this is the perfect time of year to get kiddos into lessons! Kids need time and repetition to acquire and maintain their swim skills. Getting kids into lessons NOW is the best way to ensure that they are safer when beach and pool season return in summer 2020. Des Moines-area families are lucky to have a brand new option for swim lessons for kids opening in February of 2020.

Goldfish Swim School is the country’s leading water safety and swim lesson school offering infant and child swim lessons. There is no other learn-to-swim program like Goldfish in the Des Moines area.
