“I can't say enough good things about Little Swimmers. My daughter is 2 1/2, and a few weeks ago she would have drowned in a pool, but now she is a confident swimmer. I am amazed!!!”

Neme Maceo
“Little Swimmers is truly great. My two year old has learned so much in so little time. I highly recommend them. Her instructor Michelle is very sweet and knowledgable.”

“I took my 7 year old son, to the kendall location for private lessons with Ely. He is the absolute best! My shy kid connected with him so great on the first day, and felt completely comfortable with him. On the second day, not only was he swimming fantastically, he started learning different strokes. This place, and this instructor, was more than worth the money! You get what you pay for! Even my son said he was lucky because he got the best instructor!! ”

“My kids learned super quickly!
I was so impressed that my 9 mo old daughter was swimming in 5 lessons! My son at just 5 was diving into the 9 feet and getting dive toys.
The instructors were amazing, and the secretary Amber was so helpful! I loved that the owners were also always around and smiling.
I will be back every summer and tell everyone I know that this is definitely the best swim school in Miami.”
