Kids 1st Swim School




We absolutely love Ms Sherri at Kids 1st swim school for our three kids . Ms Sherri taught them all the essential survival and swim skills without them even realizing it. They just thought they were playing. Ms Sherri creates a calm and peaceful environment . Every single lesson she is patient , kind and makes each child feel comfortable . You would never know if it were the first or last lesson of the day . She has the same joyful demeanor . My oldest two have since graduated and are like fish in the water . They have so much confidence when swimming and most importantly know survival skills. My youngest is currently taking lessons and has learnt so much in short space of time . Even on days he doesn't feel like going Ms Sherri quickly changes his mind and he has so much fun! We are so lucky to have Ms Sherri in our lives. We are forever thankful for her !



Our son has learned so much and Miss Marlene does such a wonderful job!  I highly recommend her to all parents.  It’s worth every penny.



My son, Graham, has been taking lessons from Miss Sheri for 8 months. He was at the height of separation anxiety when we started but he quickly learned he could trust Miss Sherri and developed a love of swimming with her. Through patience, kindness and exceptional skill, she turned Graham into a very strong swimmer and a more confident child. As a parent, I am more at peace having a pool at home knowing that Graham has learned to float and is developing his swimming ability.

Kids 1st Swim School came highly recommended to us by hundreds of local moms.  It was the best decision ever to sign my kids up with them!  Our instructor was Miss Rachel and she was so amazing.  She made my 4 year old so comfortable and excited about swimming.  He couldn’t wait to go to his lessons.  Miss Rachel kept my son laughing and made each lesson so fun!  He improved a lot each session and is now swimming like a fish!  I can’t wait to get my youngest son in for lessons too.



We honestly can't say enough great things about Kids 1st Swim school, and our son's instructor, who is also the owner, Sherri, is the BEST!! She is so patient and knowledgeable, and our 2 year old has felt completely comfortable with her from the start. She really takes her time making sure each child is comfortable, as I'm sure each instructor does because that's the standard of Kids 1st! We wanted to find a swim school that taught how to survive and be safe in the water, but also wanted a more gentle and patient approach. That's exactly what we found with Kids 1st. We genuinely look forward to each lesson because of how much our son loves it, and watching him swim better and better each week has been incredible to see. We are SO happy we found Kids 1st Swim School. It's truly the best.

Miss Rachel is the absolute best!!  She comes to our private pool and has been working with my 2 year old for 2 months twice a week and Addison is basically a fish in the pool!

The best swim program for little ones. As non-native Floridians we thought it was very important that our son, Allister learn how to swim, be comfortable and safe in the water. We had Ms. Nicole as an instructor and I can’t think of a kinder and more patient instructor to teach our little hurricane how to swim. Our son went from not swimming to doing different strokes in about a year. He learned to swim but he also learned to focus better and listen. We were so sad to leave Florida and Ms. Nicole as we have struggled to find a similar program in the DC Metro area our website. We recommend Ms. Nicole and Kids 1st Swim School without any hesitation.
