Rylie has been getting swim lessons from Sunsational Swim School.
Sunsational swim school is the way to go!
Rylie is super scared of the water. Bath times are difficult (can I get a amen from any of the other mom’s out there). She is scared of water being poured on her head and water getting in her eyes, nose and ears– it’s tragic and she screams bloody murder every time we bathe her.
Why We Chose Sunsational Swim School
Sunsational Swim School is a nationwide website mobile swim school that matches you to a certified swim instructor among their 2000+ professionals in their database hand picked, vetted and background checked professional coaches. They’ll provide lessons to kids as early as 6 months old! It’s so easy to sign up! All I needed to do was complete a quick survey and then I was immediately matched to an experienced instructor in our area. We were matched with Gabby and she is wonderful. She is so gentle, patient and encouraging with Rylie. The best part about the matching system is that they hand select the instructor that best suits your needs AND the instructor will come to you and provide lessons in your community pool. I LOVE that!
I didn’t have high-expecations for Rylie– I know she’s won’t be joining the summer olympics team any time soon. My only goal for these lessons were for Rylie to be comfortable with water. We’re mid-way through our program and I can already tell that Rylie is less and less scared. She can now stick her face in the water and blow bubbles. We’re still working on her holding her breath but at least she’s willing to try which is a HUGE improvement. Rylie can also crawl from one end of the pool to the other and can even climb out by herself. I really appreciate how Gabby is willing to go at Rylie’s comfort pace but will gently push and encourage her to try new things. If you’re in the market for a swim instructor, I highly recommend checking our Sunsational Swim School!
