The snow has finally melted, Easter is just a few weeks away, and many park districts have their early-bird swim passes on sale now. So it is definitely time to start thinking about summer, swimming and water safety.
I'm so pleased to have Goldfish Swim School of St. Charles as one of my sponsors. Goldfish Swim School offers state-of-the-art aquatic facilities dedicated entirely to indoor swim classes and programs for children ages 4 months and up. The St. Charles school is located at 3455 Legacy Boulevard, just east of Kirk Road and south of Route 64. You can follow its Facebook page to keep up to date on news and events, and the school's "family open swims" (open to the general public) are included on the Go West Calendar.
Next week, I'll share with you a video tour of the beautiful facility, along with footage of the enthusiastic Goldfish teachers interacting with their students. But first, I wanted to let owner Alex Tyler answer a few questions about the Goldfish philosophy and why he thinks swimming lessons are so important for young children.
