Operating as usual


Grab the bubble bath and your favorite Bubbles bath toy (or if you're like some of our members, all the Bubbles bath toys - you can never have too many!) ๐Ÿ˜‰ It's Bubble Bath Day! ๐Ÿ›

While a sudsy bubble bath can be all sorts of fun, we also want to take a moment to remind everyone of the importance of bath safety!

Always be engaged and supervise your children in the tub. Make sure the tub is fully drained after use and keep the bathroom door closed. Here's to making tonight's bathtime extra fun (and safe!) ๐Ÿซง

P.S. Just for fun: In the comments below, let us know what Bubbles bath toy is your kiddo's favorite ๐Ÿงก

It's time for Water Safety Wednesday - Bath Safety edition! Did you know that January is Bath Safety Month? This is a perfect time to put some extra emphasis on bath water safety to ensure that this special time is not only fun but safe for your little ones. ๐Ÿงก

Our Story

Goldfish Swim School โ€“ Bonita Springs is a state-of-the art swimming facility dedicated to teaching children as young as 4 months old.

Goldfish is much more than a swim school. You feel it the moment you walk in. Something different. Itโ€™s more than vibrant colors chosen to inspire kids. More than a curriculum crafted to not only teach kids to swim but also to build their character through guided play. More than a shiver-free pool heated to 90 degrees. Thereโ€™s something more. Something unexpected. Something beyond typical. Itโ€™s passion.

Not just a passion for kids or a passion for swimmingโ€ฆitโ€™s a special passion for changing โ€“ even saving โ€“ lives by teaching kids to swim and be safer in and around the water.

We use our holistic philosophy, The Science of SwimPlayยฎ, to build life skills both in and out of the water using play-based learning in a fun and safe environment. In a class size of no more than 4 children to 1 swim instructor, children master the skills they need to be safer and confident in the water. Beginning as early as 4 months, children progress through a series of perpetual swimming lessons, graduating to higher levels of difficulty as swimming skills are mastered.
