I took my 5 1/2 year old daughter to this swim school for nine 15 minute lessons. ?It was a 3 day a week cycle consisting of Mon, Wed, and Friday. The instructor she was assigned was Paul. He did a good job and was great at motivating my child to do better each time. It was a great experience for my daughter to see other children learning.
My family has been taking lessons at Lucile Cowle's for two generations now. We have many friends who also come and it is fun to see all of the kids learning to swim. I think the focused "one on one" teaching time that Lucile Cowle's does is the best way for little ones to learn to respect water and also to learn how to swim for fun and sports as they get older. It was very important for us as parents to have our children be water safe. We are looking forward to another year as our grand kids now take to the water to learn to be safe and have fun in the water too. Thank you Lucile Cowle's!ucile Cowle Swim School provided a great experience for all of our children. Through the years, not only did they learn to swim, but they also each became a strong swimmer. In speaking with other customers I heard of people who had swam there as a child and were now bringing their grandchildren!
I had a great experience at this swim school. Paul and Sara were my daughters's instructors and after the 2nd lesson she was already swimming on her own. I was really surprised, she's 4 1/2. I was pressed for time bc were leaving on vacation and was hoping she would learn to swim before. I only had time for 6 lessons total and didn't think that would even be enough, but she's a little swimmer now jumping from the deep end, kicking and swimming on her own.
I never write these things, but my son learned to swim at Lucile Cowle. They were amazing. They have young teachers who are wonderful at making children feel comfortable in the water. They were masters at keeping the lessons light and fun while teaching him all of his strokes. As an educator myself, I found the school to be a model for teaching water safety to young and school age children.

Lucile's has been around forever, at least 32 years. I took lessons there and so did my daughter when she was 8 months old. The instructors are top notch, very knowledgeable, excellent with kids, and very professional. The facility is very clean and there is a warm, family atmosphere. Lots of chairs for parents to sit and watch while their kids are taking their lessons. I would personally recommend Lucile's to anyone. They are a bit more expensive than others but well worth the money. PROS: clean, excellent instructors, friendly, family atmosphere.
My boys were fortunately gifted swim lessons last summer at Lucile Cowle's Swim School in Burbank. I was a little skeptical since I had never heard of the swim school before and because the lessons were pretty expensive (although a gift to us). The lessons here are different - one on one lessons at 15 minute intervals either 2, 3 or 5 days a week depending on your preference. My older son was paired with Paul who was really tuned into the individual needs of my 4 1/2 year old. My tot was paired up with Lacee who was fantastic as well. By the end of the summer my kids had progressed beautifully and next summer, gift or no gift, we'd like to send our kids back.
All three of my children have learned to swim at Lucile Cowle's Swim School. We have had several teachers, including Jim, Peach, Paul and Jessi. All have been excellent and work well with children. Kids relate differently to teaching styles, and Lucile Cowle has teachers that range from very hand-holding to more firm and earnest. My youngest son achieved his Beginner 3 card this summer with Jessi's guidance. He was thrilled!
My children and grandchildren all learned to swim at Lucile's. All had great experiences and loved going to their lessons. Those lessons involved a total of 12 entirely different personalties. Each one got treated with respect, silly when necessary and firm when necessary. We obviously loved it or wouldn't have had 2 generations learning to swim there.
