Goldfish Swim School of Okemos Opens to Rave Reviews

CREATED Jan. 17, 2013

OKEMOS, Mich.—Swim lessons are a hot topic in the area, despite the freezing temperatures outside. Goldfish Swim School, a leading water safety and swim lesson school, began lessons in Mid-December at their new Okemos location. This tropical setting now opens its doors to the public for a Grand Opening Party on Saturday, January 19, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Goldfish Swim School Grand Opening Party will offer the community an opportunity to tour the facility and enjoy swimming in the 90-degree pool. In addition, there will be pizza and soup from Zoup!, a face painter, horse and carriage rides, a petting zoo, a hot cocoa bar, and door prizes.

Rebecca Burlingame, general manager, said she continues to receive inquiries from parents interested in becoming part of the Goldfish family on a daily basis.

“From day one we’ve felt like this is the right place for our daughter to learn to swim,” said Goldfish parent Aimee Ross. “I would recommend, and encourage, it to anyone.”

The Goldfish program provides developmentally appropriate water safety and swimming lessons to babies and young children in a safe, kid-friendly and fun environment.

My daughter and I enjoy the genuine, warm welcome we have received from all the staff,” said Molly Day, a Goldfish parent. “I have been very impressed with the unique props and toys they use to work with the kids on their swimming skills.”
Instead of lessons that start and stop with the seasons, Goldfish students go year-round, and are less likely to forget what they’ve learned and naturally build trusting relationships with the instructors.

Class registration is now open for all ages and skill levels. Goldfish Swim School is located at 5135 Times Square Drive, Ste. B, behind PetSmart.
