Water Otters Swim School’s philosophy embraces a child centered approach to teaching students about swimming, safety, and water exploration. Water Otters Swim School was founded in 1999 with the belief that learning to swim is an opportunity to develop a valuable life-saving skill, promote physical and emotional development, and open the door to a lifelong love of the water.

Gently guided by a skilled and empathetic teacher the Water Otters teaching method allows students to find their own path towards comfort, confidence, and safety in the water while honoring their individual needs and encouraging their unique spirit. Water Otters provides innovative, consistent, mindful teaching and a safe space to learn which promotes connection and trust between teacher and student.

All Water Otters lessons are tailored to the individual student’s needs, ability, and readiness utilizing proven and successful teaching methods. Learning to swim in a relaxed, fun, nonjudgmental, and comfortable environment provides not only the life-long skill of swimming but promotes personal development and increases positive self-esteem.
