Success! Thanks for posting your review of Little Dipper Aquatic Center. You’ve done the world some good today.


LOVE this place! our kids have a blast learning and it is a must in our family. Swim lessons is so important for kids of all ages so they learn to be "water safe" we love Little Dippers methods and how they drill into swimmers the basics that can save their lives. I have also seen a few adult swimmers taking private lessons and they are taught the same way as a 3 year old (that's a good thing) Calm, loving,... view more

We are so grateful to the Little Dippers staff. Our daughter fell into the Lafayette Reservoir when we are on a play date. She rolled onto her back and calmly swam over to the side. It happened so fast and was very un expected. I was aware that she was able to swim during her class time with her teacher or with us at public pools, but I was shocked to see that she had a quick reaction and internalized to float and k... view more

Hi Little Dipper Staff! We are...

Hi Little Dipper Staff! We are in Kauai and our little fishes are getting attention everywhere we go thanks to you all! We are having the best family vacation swimming around with our kids. Lucas is able to swim around in the kiddie pool face in the water rolling to float pretending to be a pirate and Jasmine is swimming around making friends playing mermaid. I must admit they look fantastic, confident and most of al... view more

About our experience so far: I...

About our experience so far: I wanted my daughter to start swim classes right after birth, but the earliest enrollment age locally I found was at little dippers swim school. We started at the Lafayette pool when she was just 3 months old and the first classes were quite scary for me a a parent. When I needed to put her under water - I was shaking and not confident. But with the instructor's help and practice I got mu... view more

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are excited to be expanding into a new facility soon. We know that the temp site is not ideal and we are there since our client base has grown so much that we were turning swimmers away. Our new facility will be opening August 2012 with locker rooms, bathrooms, parent waiting area with viewing window, tv, coffee, swim shop, birthday parties and yoga. We thank you for your honest feedback and look forward to seeing you at the new facility in August!

I am a parent of four children...

I am a parent of four children! I have two older children that learned to swim at a young age while my family lived on the east coast. They now swim on the swim team (ages 9 and 10), and while being around water on a daily location, it was imperative for my two younger children (2 and 3) to be safe while around the water. I started my 3 yr old daughter at Little Dippers almost 2 years ago. She has taken lessons with ... view more

I graduated from Little Dippers Swim School (which was then also taught and ran by Joy as well as other wonderful teachers) roughly 25 years ago and now drive from Antioch to bring my children back to Joy. My son is 4 and is swimming laps in 3 different strokes and has been given this skill and self empowerment from Joy. He has been through many stages starting at 6 months and it is all so worth it when we go to ... view more

My son has been going to Little Dippers for 1.5 years and my daughter has been going for 8 months. Both of my kids started with Joy as their teacher and currently my daughter is still with Joy in her parent participation class. I have had such a great experience with this school and these teachers. My son is now with Kirsten, whom I cant say enought good things about. Some people are just born to be teachers and have... view more

My son has been taking private lessons at Little Dippers for a little over a year now, and is doing an amazing job! He went in to lessons at Little Dippers (after having almost 6 months of lessons elsewhere), being afraid of having his face put in the water, and now his favorite part about his lesson is going under water, and diving to the bottom of the shallow end to get a toy. He is also able to dive in from one ... view more

We have had swim lessons for more than five years at Little Dipper Swim School and there is a reason it is incredibly popular -- it is simply the best. All three of our daughters have flourished under Joy's direction. For example, my first daughter is now almost six and an absolute fish with a huge love of the water thanks to the fact we started at Little Dipper when she was nine months old. I continue to learn so... view more

My son Parker is taking lessons from Joy. I think her school is wonderful! Parker is such a mellow child who would be happy sitting on the top step playing until he turns 12 (he is 3 by the way). I had him take swim lessons elsewhere and for two months all he learned to do was blow bubbles. The philosophy of this other swim school was to let the child take the lead. They were afraid to push Parker for fear... view more
