Spotted Swim 2.



LaFleur’s swimming lessons are designed with younger children in mind. During the formative years kids need to have an opportunity to swim “year round”. LaFleur’s has a state of the art indoor, heated pool to give your kids every opportunity to learn in a safe and comfortable environment.





1. Indoor Facility:

  • Climate control; always 90 – 92 degrees degrees
  • No cancelled classes due to weather
  • No sun damage to kids or instructors
  • No sun in eyes while back floating

2. Heated Pool ~ 90 – 92 degrees:

  • Kids learn faster and are more comfortable in warm water!
  • No shivering and blue lips here!

3. Small Classes:

  • We boast a low 4 to 1 student : teacher ratio. In fact we only allow 3 children in our 3 year old classes. That’s an industry low.

Spotted Swim4. Caring, Certified Staff:

  • Our teachers are Ellis, WSI, CPR, First Aid certified – and trained by our expert management to be “kid friendly”!

5. Fun, Progressive Curriculum:

  • Our goal is to keep the kids moving in the water
  • With lots of turns and praise for effort and improvement kids learn while having FUN!

6. Shallow Pool:

  • Teachers and parents can stand anywhere in our pool (3 – 4ft. deep)
  • This is less intimidating to our younger students and easier for adults to “spot” the kids during class

7. Safe Ports for Young Students:

  • We have 4 sets of stairs, an 8 ft swim-out & several “swim platforms” throughout the pool for kids to swim to and from during class

Kick Board8. Cool Stuff:

  • We use a lot of “props” like dive rings, underwater hoops, dumb bells, kick boards, a slide, and lots of other toys to make learning FUN!

9. Goggles:

  • It’s amazing how much more interesting our underwater world is when you can SEE CLEARLY. Help us to get your child “goggle friendly”.
