Swimming Safari Swim School knows how important it is for children with special abilities to learn to swim and stay safe. We offer swim lessons to all children no matter what their strengths or limitations are. We are proud to have the opportunity to work with your child!
Qualifications: For a child to qualify in our special abilities program, they must first be evaluated by one of our instructors to see:
Their water abilities
Their ability to work with others or alone
Their ability to communicate with the instructor
Class Ratio: 2 Students : 1 Instructor
Class Format: Once evaluated the student will be placed in either a group class consisting of students with a teacher or students and parents with a teacher.
Length of Enrollment: Each student will be able to progress at his or her own pace. While some students will be able to swim across an entire lane, others will be working on survival skills. When reaching a certain level, children will be asked to join a regular class, which will encourage strengthening their skills & progression.
Price: We charge the same rate as we do all our students. For more information on pricing and billing, please click here. At times we receive grants which we use to partially offset the cost of these lessons.
How to get started: The first step is to contact our office to set up an evaluation class. Phone: 904-260-1836 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

My 8 year old daughter hated going to the pool, wouldn't leave the steps at the shallow end and would scream if anyone tried to move her. She has been taking lessons at Safari Swim School 2 times a week for 4 weeks and she has increased 3 levels and loves going to the pool and swimming. She has had many different instructors at the school and they have all been attentive, sweet and patient. If you want your child to learn how to swim and be safe, I would highly recommend this school. Thank you to the great staff.
