I have been bringing my almost 2 and 4 year olds to Peninsula Swim School for almost a year now. I tried 2 other swim school before coming to Peninsula and the programs just didn't fit us or our schedules.
Since starting at P.S.S. my eldest has become a little fish. Due to our schedule, she had two different instructors whom she has completely fallen in love with. Both teachers communicate with each other so there's no confusion as to where she has left off from lesson to lesson.
I started my youngest about 6 months ago in their baby parent program and was totally embarressed because she screamed for her first 4 lessons. I was about to give up but out instructor encouraged us to push through it and I am so glad we did. I couldn't be happier with the progresss she is making.
The swim instructors are all wonderful and patient. They are making a positive difference in every childs life that goes through there. You can see that they all care about what they do.
One thing that convinced me to give P.S.S. a try was their flexible program. The office staff is very helpful . They helped me pick days and times that worked around my schedule not theirs. The offer flexibility to change your schedule at any time. They also give make-ups, ability to put lessons on hold. They even have a drop in schedule for families that cannot commit to a regular weekly schedule.
I highly reccommend you give Peninsula Swim School a try and you can be as happy as I am!!!

We are current students at Aitken's Swim School. Our children LOVE it! Our daughter, 5.5, is quickly becoming familiar with a variety of swim strokes. She views a pool as a fun place to be. Our son, 3, is also picking up swim techniques quickly. We have Christy, and our kids love her. She knows when to push them and when to back off. She has a wonderful rapport with children. It is obvious she has swim knowledge and an understanding of different childhood characteristics. We also have to opportunity to watch other instructors while we are there. Andrew, Lisa, and Kerry also posses a true love of teaching and a highly proficient skill of understanding how young children work.
I would HIGHLY recommend this school to everyone!
