Little Swimmers was founded in 1996 by Gerald Little and Meric Tendrich at their current West Kendall location at the Miccosukee Golf & Country Club. Because of their continued success, they have been able to open three more locations over the past 20 years, allowing them to serve the Killian, Homestead, and Pembroke Pines area. Utilizing their many years of experience as swimming instructors and fire fighters, Gerald and Meric have successfully developed a water safety program used by the instructors at Little Swimmers, proven to be the most safe and effective method of teaching children and adults to swim.
